Colts/Broncos Tonight Is Like a Plain Vanilla Ice Cream Party

At the beginning of the season, tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos looked like an interesting game with two veteran quarterbacks on new teams in Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson. But neither team has lived up to expectations and Dan likens it to a plain vanilla ice cream party with no cone, no mix-ins, no fudge sauce, not even sprinkles. Everybody likes ice cream, but plain vanilla just isn’t enough to peak anybody’s interest.

Dan Patrick: “I liken this to a friend who says, ‘C’mon over! Ice cream party, we’re serving vanilla!’ OK. I like ice cream. I don’t know if I’m going to make it over there, maybe I’ll do a cameo. And that’s probably what I’ll do with this game tonight.”
