Relocating the Super Bowl

Well that was a really good game last Sunday. As long time Chicago Bears fan, I can’t say I was happy to see the Packers win (sorry my Milwaukee friends).  It’s just against the rules if you grew up watching Walter Payton and you were taught that Mike Ditka could be President, he just doesn’t want to. Anyway, I’ve be thinking a lot this week about how wonderful it’s going to be for Indianapolis to host this event next year. I am quite confident it will be one of the city’s shining moments and the best central Indiana has to offer will step forward.  Indianapolis and the surrounding communities are experts not only at entertaining crowds (think Indy 500, NCAA Final Four, Olympic Swimming Trials, Big Ten Basketball Championships, and more), but they are the best at the logistics it takes to move large groups of people safely in and out of the events and venues.  Likewise, Lucas Oil Stadium may not have a 200” TV, but it is one of the premier facilities in the country…I know, it took 7 years to see the monster trucks there a couple of weeks ago, but that’s a whole different story.

I am personally excited about the upcoming events and I’ll be writing periodically about the economic and social impact of this great opportunity on our home.  If you have any comments or have particular topics surrounding this that you are interested in, please add your comments or contact me directly.  Go Colts! (and Bears!)
