Ah, irony. After Chris Bishop’s invitation last year in Wisonsin to this year’s conference and his truly rabid support of the Colts (I’ve seen the picture of him yelling at one of the games), I do find it ironic that the Packers won last season, Peyton’s out for the season (most likely), and the teams currently have palindromic 2011-2012 season records. All that aside, I do still have faith in our home team, which leads me to the
1st part of this blog entry: Colts
This Sunday the Colts have a home game at 1pm against the Kansas City Chiefs. Rumor has it that tickets may be a little easier to come by this season, so this may be an opportunity to go to an NFL game if you’ve always wanted to and never had the chance. Of course, I assume that everyone will either giving their paper presentations or listening and learning from them, so I doubt any of us will be impacted by this. 🙂
However, this does bring me to point #2: Construction
As much as I love the Cultural Trail in Indianapolis, it is not completed yet. The Super Bowl this upcoming February 6, 2012 is going be held here in Indianapolis, which means even more construction is under way to make the city its shiniest and prettiest for early next year. Bonus construction, coupled with a lot of one-way streets in downtown Indianapolis, makes driving extra fun (or headache-inducing). Also not surprisingly with construction, where to cross the street, which lane is open, etc. may change daily (or hourly). Drivers in Indianapolis, being in the Midwest, are generally still polite (read: not enough honking, in my opinion), so just keep that mind, and bring good walking shoes!
