This is Peyton’s Super Bowl

Bob Kravitz is clearly enjoying the bustle of the Super Bowl in Indy.  As he takes in the transformation of our city into the focal point of the sporting world this week he pauses to remind us of something:

Sure, this is about economic impact. Is there something wrong with money now? But it’s about more than that. It’s about community involvement. It’s about leaving a footprint in this city. It’s about a city, a region, spreading its wings and showing the country, even the world, what it’s become in a few short decades since it was known as Naptown and India-no-place.

It feels a little odd that we are on the cusp of the Peyton Manning Super Bowl, being played in the House Peyton Built, and all we can focus on is Peyton’s tenuous future. The hope is he watches this and understands that without him, this never would have happened.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
