Over the past few weeks, I’ve grown to feel very strongly that as the Crossroads of America transforms into the focal point of worldwide attention, Indy’s gonna nail this. Period.
Venturing downtown this morning, the City’s new confidence permeated the January chill.
This town is ready, baby.
For those of us who reside here, chances are we’re not seeing the big game in the Stadium. (But who knows, you might be a lucky bastard like my friends Ted and Kevin who will be on the field for the big game or my buddy Mike Jansen who just so happens to be the stadium announcer for the Colts.) Resist that locals’ urge to eschew a trip downtown among the throng.
I’m definitely going to check out some music, the Super Bowl Village, and that beach they’re setting up at Victory Field. I still have my fingers crossed for tix to Jimmy Fallon.
Do it. Go out. Mingle. Show the guests to our city that great Hoosier Hospitality.
And, no, you don’t have to force a “Have a Super day!” to visitors like the volunteers, concierges, and cabbies have been instructed. Just be helpful like I know you are.
I said it right here and now, “Indy’s Gonna Nail This.”
