INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts secured a hard-earned victory against the Minnesota Vikings on Week 2 of the new NFL season Sunday, attributing their victory to local man Justin Thacker, who persistently yelled “go Colts” at his television screen throughout the 3-hour broadcast.
Initially, it was believed that the impressive victory came about as a result of the team’s considerable work ethic, months of pre-season preparation and valiant individual prowess.

However, upon hearing Thacker constructively advise him to “throw the ball already,” new Colts quarterback Andrew Luck says he “suddenly became more determined than ever to win this damn match.”
“I just don’t know how we would have got it done without Mr Thacker,” said Luck in a post-game interview. “Feeding off of his mindless passion for the sport was absolutely what sealed the victory for us in the end.”
Meanwhile, Colts head coach Chuck Pagano was quick to dismiss reports that Mr Thacker’s game-long chanting had also contributed to the Colts’ defeat in game 1 to the Chicago Bears.
