My Blue Heaven: Colts’ Cheerleader and Mascot are Perfect Sideline Pair

In the Thursday special section of the Indianapolis Star, “Colts Nation,” Colts Cheerleader Alison M is featured.  The story is below, some photos are online here, and some photos I took of Alison and her notable husband from the Jets game on December 27th are posted at the bottom:

A FAMILY AFFAIR

Robert Scheer

Indianapolis Star

Before the team arrives, before the tailgaters have fired up their first grill, a Colts cheerleader makes her way into Lucas Oil Stadium to start her day.  Alison M. (squad members do not use their full names as a security measure) hauls in a suitcase full of makeup and clothing before the Broncos game.  Alison, a member of the squad for the past four years, is on time for practice at 7 a.m., six hours before kickoff.  After an hour or two of practice, the cheerleaders deal with makeup, hair, and autograph sessions before performing a dance routine before kickoff.  During the game, the Colts mascot, Blue, is always friendly with Alison.  “Blue is definitely one of my favorite people on the field.  He always makes me laugh.” That might be because Alison is married to Blue.  They met and fell in love because of the Colts.  Alison defends her husband’s career choice with a laugh.  “That’s his full-time job.  He dresses up like a horse and gets to be a big kid.”
