What is the worst incident you have witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself at the ballpark?
  • "I've never witnessed any bad behavior toward opposing fans. Hoosiers are very nice people. A little too nice. It hurts our ability to keep opposing fans away and maintain a pure homefield advantage. Clevelanders are vicious but they don't have to worry about a bunch of visiting team fans showing up and embarrassing them, because everyone is too scared to go to a Browns game wearing anything but orange and brown."
  • "I witnessed a New England Patriots fan get sucker punched in the face just walking in the tunnel."
  • "I witnessed myself harass someone for three hours for wearing a Tony Romo jersey. I might have made him cry. If you are out there Romo guy, I am sorry."
  • "We booed a little girl in the Punt, Pass and Kick competition who was wearing a Patriots jersey. Parents should know better than to dress their children in clown clothes."
What is your favorite memory from a game at the stadium?
  • "The "Luke" is too new. However, beating the Pats in the AFC Championship game in the old dome in 2006 was one for the ages. "
  • "It was the dome, during the AFC Championship Game against the Pats two years ago. The moment Marlin Jackson intercepted Tom Brady's pass and ensured us a trip to the Super Bowl. It was the culmination of everything it meant to be a fan. I was sitting next to this guy from Jersey who had been a Colts fan since their Baltimore days, and we started hugging and jumping up and down. We embraced for nearly a minute; then I realized he was crying on my shoulder."
  • "This is a new stadium. Opening the roof and end zone windows does it so far."
