PRESEASON HYPE: In Indianapolis, Phillip Wilson noted the preseason Colts-Redskins game on Saturday is being “promoted on a T-shirt,” and the move indicates the “immediate marketability” of Luck and Griffin. Indianapolis-based retailer MainGate President & CEO David Moroknek said that the "QB Showdown" T-shirt was launched in both the Indianapolis and DC markets late last week, and “has already sold half of its stock” (INDIANAPOLIS STAR, 8/23).
