FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Linebacker Gary Brackett called the Colts’ appearance in Super Bowl XLIV “the ultimate business trip,” and his teammates present at the Colts’ arrival press conference certainly dressed the part Monday evening.
Brackett, who drew one of the larger crowds at the five smaller podiums located around the conference room, was decked out in a three-piece suit, complete with a tie and pocket square. Teammate Ryan Diem eschewed the jacket, but kept the vest, opting for the “just got back from the dance floor look.”
But while all of the Colts — including coach Jim Caldwell and Peyton Manning, who spoke first on the main podium — were dressed for success, it was running back Joseph Addai who stuck out in a white Super Bowl XLIV t-shirt.
Guess he didn’t get the memo.
