Super Bowl Week

Less than a week away from finding out who the champions of the NFL will be in Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium, and the festivities are fully underway. Both teams have made their way to America's Heartland with Tuesday's media obligations next on the itinerary. And while the teams prepare for the biggest game of the season, players from different teams and different eras will fill the airways hawking their latest corporate sponsor disguised as interviews.

Indianapolis has hosted many events to prepare themselves for this big day. NCAA Final Fours are common as well as Big Ten Championship events and the Indianapolis 500. But the NFL isn't foreign to the Indiana State capital. Annually the NFL holds their college combine, first at the RCA Dome and now Lucas Oil. The Combine is a ten day event in February that is a big economic boost to the local economy. But now Indianapolis has built up their downtown area even more knowing the Super Bowl is in their town. Restaurants have been added as well as numerous hotels. And the downtown streets are heated and covered to allow for outdoor parties throughout this week.
