Hi Colts fans, I'm Allie! It's an honor and thrill to represent your Indianapolis Colts each week on the sidelines. Being a part of the '12th Man' for the past four years has been indescribable...  we've hosted the 2012 Super Bowl, created an amazing team under Andrew Luck's leadership, supported Coach Pagano through his recovery, seen records broken, and experienced the most thrilling victories! Our '12th Man,' without a doubt, is the best in the NFL - this city really does bleed BLUE!

I'd like to thank the Colts organization for allowing me some personal memories as well, from singing the National Anthem at two home games, allowing me to participate in a military tour a few weeks ago, developing a relationship with Down's Syndrome Indiana through personal appearances, radio spots on 1070 The Fan, and being the prayer leader for my beautiful teammates each game. As we begin this week of Thanksgiving, my hope is that we take time to count our blessings, really enjoy our family and friends, and reach out to someone in need. Let's Go COLTS!**

What is the biggest misconception that people have about the Colts Cheerleaders?
People often underestimate our football knowledge, passion, and in my case, borderline obsession. Our squad has a Fantasy Football League each season that gets very competitive. My team, Oscar Meyer Fleener, is currently tied for first with an 8-2 record. To make the squad, we have to ace a football test that gets as in-depth as requiring knowledge of every single officiating hand signal.

What's a tradition that you have on Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving at my parent's house begins with my dad lighting the first fire of the holiday season early on Thanksgiving morning while we gather in the family room to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. I LOVE IT!

What's your favorite thing to eat on Thanksgiving? 
Without a question, STUFFING!  My mom and dad each make their own recipe and it's a contest every year. Somehow they both end up winning.* *In all of my four years on the team, we have always had a home game on the weekend of Thanksgiving, so I take around two weeks just to PREPARE for the stuffing that I can't resist.

Do you have any pets and if so, what are they and what are their names?
I have a cat named Mya, who is a Siamese-Lynx Point, and last week, on a whim, Brad and I bought a kitten, whom we named Nora!

How has being a Colts Cheerleader changed your life?
I've experienced once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. I've watched 65,000 fans on game days demonstrate loyalty no matter the outcome. Our personal appearances bring together fans, who are overjoyed to talk about Colts football, and I celebrate with them. But they also bring fans who share their burdens of grief or loss, and I hurt with them. I've made friendships with girls that will last a lifetime. I've been to places I could only dream of going. I've experienced leadership that has helped me to grow. More than ever, I count each moment with the Colts organization as priceless, life-changing experiences, and I will be forever grateful. Thank you!
