Are You Ready For Some Football!
With Superbowl 50 coming up on February 7th, we wanted to know if any of our residents had a favorite Superbowl memory. Ken Matthews has been a lifetime Colts fan. Ken has followed the Colts well before they made their infamous trip from Baltimore in the mid 1980's. He was a Colts fan even though his Father Bob and Brother Steve were diehard Chicago Bears fans. Growing up in order for Ken to see his beloved Colts, he had to watch them in his bedroom while his Dad and brother watched the Bears in the living room. Ken loved watching the Colts because they had Johnny Unitas, his all-time favorite athlete. He was even fortunate enough to go to a Superbowl between the Colts and Bears when he was in high school. Ken’s Dad was able to get some tickets through his work as a country club manager. Other than football, Ken is an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan and an IU basketball fan during the Bob Knight years. One of Ken’s favorite memories growing up was listening to the Cards on the radio with his family on the front porch.
For those who are wondering, Ken’s early picks to be in the Superbowl are Kansas City and Carolina.
