Colts offer chance to win Super Bowl XLI rings
WTHR ^ | 10/30/07

Posted on 10/30/2007 9:43:38 AM PDT by Kimmers

Indianapolis - Colts fans will now have a chance to get their hands on a coveted Super Bowl XLI ring and help Indiana charities at the same time.

The Indianapolis Colts announced their Quest for the Ring contest Tuesday. Five authentic Super Bowl XLI rings will be given away to fans, and all proceeds generated by the contest will be donated to Indiana charities through the Indianapolis Colts Foundation, Inc. (ICF), a nonprofit organization.

It's the first time authentic Super Bowl rings will be available to fans.

Colts owner Jim Irsay announced the contest during a Blue Tuesday rally on Monument Circle in Indianapolis.

Participants in the contest will have to endure three stages. The final challenge will take place during halftime of the Colts home game on December 2.

Contest details:

To enter Stage One, fans must purchase one or more $5 tickets. Up to 200,000 tickets will be sold from noon (EDT) on Oct. 30, 2007 to noon (EST) on Nov. 20, 2007.

Fans can purchase tickets at the RCA Dome in the box office during normal business hours and in the guest relations kiosks during the Nov. 4 and Nov. 18 Colts home games; at participating Indiana Ticketmaster Ticket Centers; and through the local Ticketmaster Charge-by-Phone service.

The numbers for Indiana are: Anderson/Muncie (765) 644-3131; Bloomington (812) 333-9955; Evansville (812) 423-7222; Ft. Wayne (260) 424-1811; Indianapolis (317) 239-5151; Lafayette (765) 743-5151; South Bend (574) 272-7979; and Terre Haute (812) 234-2424. Tickets cannot be purchased online.

On Nov. 21, 2007, 25 winning numbers and 20 alternates will be randomly selected. Those numbers will be posted on the Colts Web site that evening. Winners who provide proper notification by 5 p.m. (EST) on Nov. 27, 2007 will be deemed Stage One winners and will advance to Stage Two. In the event that proper notification is not received by winning ticket holders, alternate ticket holders will be contacted.

In Stage Two, the 25 Stage One winners-and up to three "helpers" of their choice-will participate in a treasure hunt for Colts-related items around the city of Indianapolis from Nov. 30 - Dec. 1, 2007. The top 10 performers, as determined by the sole discretion of the Ravenchase Adventures LLC judges, will advance to the third and final stage.

During halftime of the Colts home game on Dec. 2, 2007, the 10 Stage Two winners will gather on the field and select one locked box and key to open upon command. Five of the finalists will find an authentic Indianapolis Colts Super Bowl XLI ring inside.

Didn’t the Red Sox do this with the 2004 World Series ring?

I think all teams do it now. I know the Carolina Hurricanes did a raffle for a charity for a Stanley Cup Ring.

I am just shocked that Satan Manning isn’t doing a TV ad for this. Is there anything that guy won’t shill?
Strawberry scented douches?
Nah, he would hawk those.

This is just wrong. There are somethings in life that should be earned.

There is a surprising amount of MDS (Manning Derangement Syndrome) on FR, for whatever irrational reason. It goes far beyond just rooting against the opposing teams and players. I don’t understand it, but it is kinda interesting from a psychiatric point of view.

I do not understand the MDS...he (Manning)is loved in this state not just because he is a talented QB but he has done a lot of good things in this community most of which is not public knowledge. He is well mannered well behaved,married to his college sweetie....I am a proud Colts fan because of the good character of the team which comes from the ownership on down ....the Pacers on the other hand have been disappointing but I remain optimistic

If the Dallas Cowboys ever do this, I want one of each of their five(and hopefully 6th) rings. Especially one from Super Bowl 30. Now that’s pretty.

Just trying to get some Colts fans fired up.
I am a Boston sports fan and am living the dream now with all my teams, even the Bruins doing well.
Oh yea, and that little Red Sox thing the other night!!

Dear Boston Fan,

You have reason to be happy....I assume you are a Pats fan...of course I am not....I have to admit it is good to see Randy Moss hit his stride, I guess he needed to mature or maybe he just fits in better with the Brady Bunch

Regards, K

Teams give out rings to a lot of people who don’t play or are not in upper management. If the amount of money is right and for the right cause then I have no issue with it.

The buyer shouldn’t wear it though....
