AOL pissing on Indianapolis

AOL Fanhouse continues to find ways to piss me off. The quickest is insulting the city I was raised in and was just awarded the 2012 Super Bowl. Fanhouse writer Ryan Wilson decided to urinate on the Hoosier capital, and even take some shots at Peyton Manning:

In another clear sign that the league wants the Colts and Peyton Manning to win multiple championships, NFL owners awarded Indianapolis the 2012 Super Bowl. I might be embellishing a bit, especially since Manning will be 35 when the big show comes to Naptown (although no doubt still playing, and playing well), and the Colts lost out to the Cowboys for the right to host the game last season.

...

Added bonus: Indy in February. It'll be just like Detroit but without access to the Canadian strip clubs.

Gee, thanks Ryan. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the NFL awarded Indy the Super Bowl because the site of the World's Biggest Game getting played here is about as good as it gets:

And unlike the 2011 Super Bowl, the one hosted in Indianapolis will get played in an actual urban city, and not in "North Texas," which translated means "middle of nowhere." At least it will be near Texas strip clubs, providing Ryan and his buddy, Pacman Jones, with amble entertainment.
