We are pleased with the decision by the NFL to host the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis.
This is good news for Indiana and it gives all of us a chance to attend a Super Bowl which is not too far from Evansville.
The icing on the cake would be of course for the Indianapolis Colts to win the Super Bowl in 2012.
It would not hurt if they win a Super Bowl between now and 2012.
Here's the story from the Evansville Courier & Press:
Indy will host 2012 Super Bowl
Indianapolis was chosen today by NFL owners to host the 2012 Super Bowl.
Meeting in Atlanta, the owners voted in the Hoosier capital over competing bids from Houston and Phoenix. Indianapolis was a finalist last year for the 2011 game, but lost out in bidding to a much larger stadium near Dallas.
The 2012 game will be held at the new Lucas Oil Stadium, scheduled to open in August to replace the RCA Dome. Colts and city officials plan to turn downtown Indianapolis into a Super Bowl Village to greet visitors at the game. They cited the city's success in hosting collegiate and amateur events in their bid.
The next three Super Bowls will be held in Tampa in 2009, South Florida in 2010 and Dallas in 2011.
