I was 9 at the time that game was played. I remember that day vividly. Me and my parents were at Crown Center for some reason and I came home and was absolutely stunned that we lost. (most of my childhood life, I'd just took for granted that we'd win at home against inferior teams, which the Colts were), but then I remembered a conversation my Dad and Uncle were having, and that my Uncle actually wished we were playing the Chargers, rather than the Colts, since we were familiar with the Chargers, or something like that.
I actually asked my Dad why we didn't watch the game and let Mom control us, and he said it was because he was scared to death of the outcome. Guess he was right.
