But the Colts aren’t the only ones who have something to prove at tonight’s game. Colts fans do, too.

Each and every year, the media entrenches the masses with positive stories surrounding the two football teams in the Super Bowl. This goes on for a full two weeks following the conclusion of the conference championship games.
