• National media loves Indy as Super Bowl site

    February 06, 2012 No comments

    The verdict is in: Indianapolis put on what was perhaps the most universally praised performance in the history of Super Bowl host cities.

    The city’s first opportunity to host a Super Bowl went off without a hitch, and it was hard to imagine what could have been done better.

    The weather was perfect, well above average for February. The planning was well-executed. The spirit of the city impressed visitors, and there were few arrests or problems associated with the big game.

    National media members began talking up Indianapolis’ performance early last week, and the praise built to a crescendo late Sunday night and early Monday morning.

    Many originally thought Super Bowl XLVI would be Indianapolis’ only experience hosting the big game, but it’s clear that sentiment is strongly in favor of a return trip to Indiana.

    Indianapolis will again host the NFL Combine in a few weeks, so many of the same writers will be back soon.
