Know Your Colts History: A Good Month For Indy

Tuesday's announcement that Indianapolis was going to host the Super Bowl in 2012 is the high point of what's been a tremendous month for Indiana.  Yeah, it might stink for Gene Wojiebiglastname, but I mean it could be worse.  Let's just refer back to the "ironclad rule" in his article:

The absolute, ironclad rule for awarding Super Bowls should be this: If the host city's game-time temperature is lower than the number of the Super Bowl, you can't have the game. Simple.

Yeah, that sounds simple enough.  Can't wait to see you at Super Bowl 108!

But I'm getting off on a tangent, let's get back to Indiana.  Like I said, it's been a great month for Indiana.  Let's review the highlights of the month so far:

As has been mentioned repeatedly, Indianapolis was awarded the Super Bowl for 2012.  I know it's going to be repeated a lot over the next 4 years or so, but I'm not sure that it's ever going to get old.

There's that little annual tradition of the Indianapolis 500 that happens every May.  Not only is it The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, but it's also one of the rare opportunities to see something faster than Dwight Freeney coming off the edge.  Sidenote: I would pay good money to see Bob drive in the Indy 500 with the dreads flying out of the back of his helmet.

Some might say that the Pacers might be bringing everything down, but I couldn't disagree more.  Yeah, they might be in a rebuilding mode, but they're headed in the right direction.  At least Isiah Thomas isn't still running the team.

Finally, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the Indiana event that most excited about*:


*-For today at least.  If a movie theatre wanted to hook me up with the Indy 500 broadcast on a movie screen, I wouldn't be able turn that down, even for Indiana Jones.
