I spy a new #Colts banner inside @LucasOilStadium. We're live from mini-camp beginning 4p #TheNowIndy on @rtv6 pic.twitter.com/wLDkp4YOSE— Dave Furst (@DaveFurst) June 10, 2015
And, if hanging up a banner that will remind you of a 38-point beat-down every time your team plays at home wasn't bad enough, the Twitter trolls had a field day.
The Colts hanging a "2014 AFC Finalist" banner at Lucas Oil is the funniest thing anyone's ever done in the history of sports— Jill Pellegrini (@jillpell28) June 10, 2015
Colts hang AFC finalist banner. Congratulations on getting smoked 45-7 & putting a banner up to remind you how bad you lost— Eric Blodgett (@eblodge8706) June 10, 2015
We scored 3 points in the first quarter..... Gotta hang a banner. #Colts— ryan berardi (@armyrossi) June 10, 2015
In the Colts' defense, this isn't the first time they've hung up an "AFC Finalist" banner, it's just the first time they've done it in the social media era when people could make fun of it. Here's a look at the banners from 1995 and 2003.
Colts have been doing that "finalist" banner thing for a long time now, for what it's worth. pic.twitter.com/MUAhIlzVy1— Christopher Price (@cpriceNFL) June 10, 2015
