It's all but official. The "Suck for Luck" strategy,

number one pick in the draft. If all goes according to plan, next
Thursday evening Roger Goodell will say that magical phrase that
Colts fans have been waiting for, "With the first pick in the 2012

"For the last 10 years, the Colts' incredible success
has helped drive business downtown and it has been exciting seeing
the rebuilding process and fans supporting a current 3-seed Pacer
playoff team," said Dave Hornak, General Manager & Operating

released or traded in major housecleaning of the team as

draft" said Eric Schamp, COO at Scotty's Brewhouse. "Of course our
interest in the #1 pick in the first round is quite a bit different
than in previous years, but all the rounds will be exciting to
watch and see who joins the team as we move into the next era of

Colt's Fans. During the night of the draft, Scotty's will be

"With all the hype about the draft this year, we thought it would
be fun to offer draught specials," said Ryan Kellerman, the
Director of Beverage. "Now, fans can make their own draught picks
while watching to see who the Colts select."
