Colts welcome 93-year-old woman who had been assaulted in her home to training camp
A few weeks ago, 93-year-old Indianapolis resident Amelia Rudolf was assaulted in her home. The life long Indianapolis Colts fan says the attacks left her questioning her faith in humanity.
““When something like (the assault) happens, you kind of lose faith in the human spirit.”
On Sunday, Rudolf’s faith may have been restored by Colts owner Jim irsay and the Indianapolis Colts as the team welcomed her and her family to training camp.
According to the Indy Star, quarterback Andrew Luck, kicker Adam Vinatieri and owner Jim Irsay spent some time with Rudolf after practice. Before Luck left, he even gave Rudolf a hug.
Rudolf’s visit with the Colts was made possible due to her daughter Tresa Hale who contacted the Colts last week about Rudolf’s assault and her love of the Colts.
Within a week, the Colts were bringing Rudolf to training camp and according to Hale, the visit brought joy to Rudolf’s life.
“An organization like the Colts come along and does something so nice for someone else to bring happiness and joy to her life.
“She had 93 wonderful years before this happened. You can’t let 15 minutes of crime define you. It’s like Chuck said in his speech (last season). You can’t let circumstances define you.’’
Jim Irsay and the Indianapolis Colts always treat their fans well.
This isn’t the first time Irsay tried to cheer up a downtrodden Colts fan. Earlier this year, Irsay saved a local Indianapolis bar.
I would bet this won’t be the last time Jim Irsay helps to make a Colts’ fans life better.
