While this season has been tough for all Indianapolis Colts fans, it has been particularly challenging for one 18-year-old fan. Thomas Trinkle is a die-hard Colts fan, and he enjoys showing off his dedication to his favorite team day in and day out. By that we mean he has worn some sort of Colts shirt or jersey every single day of his life since the fifth grade. He’s now a senior in high school, which means he’s been wearing Colts attire and nothing but Colts attire every day for the past seven years.
“I don’t see it ending any time soon,” Trinkle said of his clothing streak.
A simple glance at Indy’s yearly results since Trinkle was in the fifth grade will show you how uniquely challenging this year has been. Since he turned his wardrobe into nothing but Colts gear in 2004, Indianapolis has never won less than 10 games and has failed to win the AFC South division only once. They made the playoffs in each of those seasons.
With the Colts currently 0-11, Trinkle said he has faced a solid amount of trash talk from people who know his story. He was introduced on the Colts video board during a recent game and featured in their game-day magazine. Like other Indy fans, he has decided to set his sights on the prospect of winning the Andrew Luck sweepstakes, which would mean another potential star whose jersey could be added to the collection.
If Indianapolis has another brutal season next year and Trinkle is still wearing nothing but Colts gear, he should be considered for the Colts Hall of Fame.
