Second-round draft choice LB Pat Angerer wasn't watching the draft Friday night, so he was a bit surprised when he got the call from team president Bill Polian and head coach Jim Caldwell. "I can't wait (to get to Indianapolis). It's truly going to be an honor playing for (the Colts). I'm going to do everything they ask of me. I can't wait to get started. I'll play wherever they put me," he said. "I wasn't even watching (the draft). My agent said there's probably a 35 percent chance that I'd be drafted (Friday), so I was just sitting around eating some food when I got the call. Man, this is a dream come true. I tried watching (the draft Thursday) and it was pretty boring. I've been playing cards (Friday) and sitting around eating." - by The Sports Xchange
