The draft is complete, and the Colts are back to football, much as kids go back to school (except they get paid handsomely). With the first regular season game still four months away, there remains plenty of time for whatever we do when there is no football – and plenty of time for contests.
New Era, the company that makes the Colts and all NFL team hats, is having a Back to Football Photo Day contest, in conjunction with the league. Details from New Era:
So what this means is that Colts fans will now have the chance to join the ranks of Andrew Luck and Reggie Wayne to also become THE face of the Colts.
The contest, which is live at speakwithyourcap.com or through New Era’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/neweracaps?fref=ts) will require Colts faithfuls to submit photos of themselves showcasing how you personally “speak with your cap.” Whether you wear your cap sideways, backwards or flexed at the brim, show how you are bringing your own style to the game.
One fan from each team will win a trip for two to New York City for a photo shoot:
32 fans (1 per team) will ultimately be chosen and win a complimentary trip to New York City for two. The winners will enjoy a four-day VIP experience and will be professionally styled in their favorite team’s looks for a New Era photo shoot that may be used for a year-long advertisement and promotional campaign.
Fans living in the U.S., U.K., or Canada can submit up to three photos of themselves, wearing a hat in at least one of them. New York is a great place to visit, especially when you can do so free of charge. So, grab your camera or cell phone, and show them what a great Colts fan you are.
A photo of how I personally speak to my cap, would involved me yelling at it as I threw it on the ground when Garcon dropped the pass or Baskett misplayed the onside kick during the Super Bowl. Alas, there are no photos available.
(Probably for the best, as it is an old Reebok cap.)
Haha. Mine's a Reebok, too. 06 AFC Championship hat (came free with my Brackett jersey). It's been thrown down in fan anger a time or two.
