The news of the day around the NFL on Tuesday came with the announcement of Super Bowl L (2016) being awarded to San Francisco and then Super Bowl LI (2017) to Houston.
What all this means for Indianapolis is the push is there for the city to try and bring Super Bowl LII (2018) back to the state capitol.
“I would be surprised if we didn’t go forward,’’ said Allison Melangton, president of the Indiana Sports Corporation and president of the 2012 Super Bowl Host Committee.

Jim Harbaugh has had a whirlwind past few months and he will add to that on Sunday as he drives the 2013 Indy 500 pace car.
Harbaugh will drive the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on Sunday before Johnny Rutherford (who normally drives the pace car during IndyCar races) takes over once the checkered flag drops.
Cavin’s article highlight’s the No. 4 and it’s importance in this year’s running of the 500.
Of course, Harbaugh donned No. 4 during his time with the Colts.

WLFI, a West Lafayette radio station, was joined by Grigson earlier in the week to touch on a variety of subjects including his days at Purdue.
Grigson, who was a co-captain during his final season with the Boilermakers, sees some correlation between his success with the Colts and his time in West Lafayette.
“In my first year on this job, I drew on from those experiences. Because I looked at times, things I’d gotten through in sports, and Purdue specifically, to where I would say, ‘you know what? I can get through this because I’ve been through worse physically and mentally before.’ So I’d definitely say my experiences at Purdue helped propel me to what I’ve done here,” Grigson told WLFI Sports Director Mike Cleff.

Hey it’s Natalie. Thanks for stopping in to check out my blog. I’ve just recently finished up my 5th year as an Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader. I will be using this blog to answer any questions you may have about auditions, games or life as an NFL Cheerleader! One of the greatest experiences I’ve had as a ‘Sweetheart of the Horseshoe’ was being a part of a Super Bowl, and I’ve actually experienced two! With the big game being this weekend I thought I would share a little insight on my experience of this crazy and exciting week!
My first Super Bowl experience was in 2009 at Super Bowl XLIV, which took place in Miami against the New Orleans Saints. This was my second year on the squad, so having our whole team travel to Miami was a great privilege. We spent the whole week leading up to the big game in Miami, a week full of once in a lifetime appearances and unforgettable events. The hotels, streets and beach were decked out in Super Bowl decor. The best part about that? Half of it was COLTS decor! Even though Super Bowl XLIV did not work out in our favor, it was awesome to see all our fans come together to cheer on and support our ‘Boys in Blue’.
My second Super Bowl experience was last season when Indianapolis hosted Super Bowl XLVI. Even though our Colts were not fortunate enough to make it to the big game, we as cheerleaders still had a fun and crazy work load. During the week leading up to the Super Bowl, each day was full of multiple appearances, ranging from autograph signings to show performances. Each day’s performance had a different theme, such as “Breast Cancer Awareness” and “Old School” performances. A group of girls were lucky enough to appear on the Jimmy Fallon show right here in Indy! My favorite memories from last year’s Super Bowl was my Game Day appearance, where about 16 of us performed inside the stadium on game day. For the performance we were in a convention room transformed into a winter wonderland. The room was completely covered in white, with fake snow and even an ice rink. We danced on stage in the middle of the room 3 separate times, signing autographs between performances. It was exciting to see fans coming from all over the world, especially our hometown supporters of our Boys in Blue. Each Super Bowl provided unforgettable memories. It was a great honor to play a unique roles in each event.
