They were among the first to buy season tickets when the Colts came to town in 1984, and now, 31 years later, the Faris family's tradition is still going strong.

For Robert Faris, Colts fever hit day one.

"We were excited about the Colts coming to Indianapolis," Faris said. "I met with Mr. Irsay – he was in the Marines, I was in the Marines, so we had something in common."

On Monday, the littlest Faris, Grayson, attended his first Colts game with the family.

The Faris family now holds 40 season tickets, and they're among just 26 original season ticket owners who still have them. Also on that list: RTV6's own Derrik Thomas.
