It was hot, humid and sunny but that did not deter the people of Madison, Ind. They showed up in droves to take in the tour.
The story of the day was not only the fans and their excitement but also the two men the fans got to meet: Jamie Silva and Gerald Cadogan.
"To be able to go to a different part of the sate and have such a large fan base is fantastic," Cadogan said.
Cadogan, a tackle from Penn State, is talented on the football field but he is just as talented off the field as a gospel singer.
"I'm truly blessed and it is a passion of mine to share the word of God through music," Cadogen, who has independently recorded two albums, said.
He is so talented that when President Obama came to Penn State to campaign Cadogen was asked to sing the national anthem. Cadogen, who got to snap a few pictures with the eventual winner of the presidency, said it was an honor and a privilege to meet Obama.
On-cue when Cadogen was asked if the guys give him a hard time for his off-the-field talent Silva leaned over and asked Cadogen to sing.
Among the fans on-hand to meet Silva and Cadogan was longtime season ticket-holder Rob who brought his sons with him.
"I wanted my sons to meet the players, cheerleaders and enjoy the festivities," he said.
And enjoy the festivities they did. Before meeting Cadogan and Silva they met Colts Cheerleaders who were in attendance to sign autographs. Rob and his sons also walked through the Colts In Motion traveling museum, played in the bounce house and slid down the Mountain slide.
The heat did not dampen the attendance or the mood as everyone present took in the Madison Make It Personal Tour stop.
Next up for the tour a trip to Tell City.
