Silva, a Boston College graduate, and Caldwell, from William & Mary, were both trilled to make the two hour trek north to greet the fans of Warsaw.
"This is great to come out here and see all the fans. It is a lot of fun for the fans especially being at a fair and a lot of fun for us," Silva, who appeared in 14 games last season, said. "Colts fans are very loyal. My first year we lost in the first round of the playoffs and people were just excited for the next year. After this year people were down but everyone is looking forward to the future because they know we have good things in store."
And all the fans in attendance were excited, not only for the tour and the fair, but also for the upcoming season which will open with training camp in just a few weeks.
One of those excited fans was Paula. Showing up an hour early, Paula donning a Colts T-shirt, sunglasses and necklace claimed the first spot in the autograph line.
"I have followed Peyton Manning since he was at Tennessee and I am just a huge Colts fans," Paula, who is a season ticket holder and drives from Warsaw for every game, said. "And I think Warsaw is absolutely a Colts town. Everyone I know here is a big Colts fan and tune in to see all the games."
Also on hand for the fans to meet and receive autographs from were Colts cheerleaders Larissa and Jessica.
The MIP Tour took over the Kosciusko County Fair setting up right on the main drive. Fans were able to walk through the Colts In Motion traveling museum and Indiana Corn and Soybean Alliance trailer.
Enthusiasts also had the opportunity to register to win free preseason tickets and register their children for the Colts Kids Club. Kids got to bounce in the bounce house and try their hand at the quarterback challenge.
The Make It Personal Tour will make its final three stops of the summer next week visiting Muncie, Lafayette and Fair Oaks Farm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.
