I’ve been going through my photos from the Super Bowl activities in Indianapolis and wanted to share a few that make me smile.
First of all, there wouldn’t have been a Super Bowl hosted by Indianapolis in the Colts’ stadium at LOS if there hadn’t been the famous night move of the Colts from Baltimore. When GN and I were walking through the NFL experience section that had some items from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, I spotted an old pennant and had to take a photo for posterity.
Another item struck my eye as well. Roger Staubach was a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and among the things for which he is remembered, is the Hail Mary Pass, coined when he threw a long pass in a 1975 playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings. With only a few seconds remaining on the play clock, the Cowboys were down by four points. Staubach’s 50-yard throw was caught by wide receiver Drew Pearson who crossed the goal line to make it a Dallas win. I’m happy to have seen Mr. Staubach’s jersey.
A little something for those who inherited the ‘shoe’ gene. I didn’t, but Gr8, my sis, and GN got it, so I try to notice things. The shoes in the following photo were pretty spiffy, if I must say so myself. I asked the Giants fan if I could take a photo and she was happy to comply.
Monument Circle in donwtown Indy was decked to the nines with a HUGE XLVI. Great for photo ops and lots of fun milling around.
I guess watching the confetti and streamers fall after the Super Bowl game is over is more fun when the team you’re backing wins. I was rooting for the Giants, so . . . it was fun for me to snap the pic.
I played in a high school band and have always liked to watch band formations on a football field. I know they take a lot of practice and so I snapped a photo of the band formation at before the start of the game.
Of course the pix that make me smile the most are those of my granddaughter having time of her life! She tried the football toss at the NFL experience. All three of her throws went through the hoop. Yea!
She also had fun stopping at the various photo ops with team uniforms.
