Super Bowl coming to Indy in 2012
Wow, so I heard it first from Smaller Indiana's website! Someone there must be in the know!
The NFL owners have spoken and the work of the Indianapolis community over the past 25 years has paid off. The 2012 Super Bowl will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Economic Impact Expected to be in Millions
Moments ago, National Football League owners, meeting in Atlanta, voted to award the 2012 Super Bowl to Indianapolis over competing offers from Houston and the Phoenix suburb of Glendale, Ariz. The decision is expected to mean an economic bonanza for the Indianapolis region as well as global media attention. A study released in April from Ball State University's Bureau of Business Research suggests that the Indianapolis region stands to receive a $365 million economic boost from the event.

All the hard work and community involvement paid off...
