Saturday she decided we were heading to downtown Indianapolis to check out the festivities surrounding the upcoming Superbowl. The whole time we were getting ready to go I imagined the crowds, the pain of street closures, the reported difficulty in finding suitable parking. It was windy and cold. I was fully prepared to be miserable.
There was little traffic. We found a great place right under Circle Center Mall -- right in the heart of downtown. The crowds were terrible, so I do have that to hang on to. We checked out the NFL painted IndyCars, the giant Roman Superbowl numerals. We mingled with the crowds. The primary attraction for the wife was the Zipline. Billed as the longest temporary Zipline in the United States it towers 100 feet above Capitol Ave in the heart of the Superbowl Village. You can se pictures here. The presale tickets were long ago sold out, but there was a chance you could buy tickets at the gate.
I could bore you with long details, but we finally got a chance to Zip around 8:30 in the evening.
The Zipline was a blast. The cold was not so bad and we survived the crowds. In all we had a a good Saturday. But I am still tired of hearing about the damn Superbowl and I am ready for it to go away.
Just one note to the city of Indianapolis. temporarily renaming the downtown streets after NFL teams is a horrible, awful idea.
