One of my goals for my Summer Retirement Internship was to organize my 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl pix and then put together a scrapbook of some sort.
The scrapbook didn’t happen because I enjoyed hosting my mother for a lovely three-week visit instead. We had a rather busy schedule while she was here and it mostly involved attending the activities of the teenage member of the household.
Now that I’m back to work for the Summer term, the scrapbook won’t happen either, but I can still peek at the photos during my lunch break.
GN took a cute photo that I somehow hadn’t seen until recently. I love it! I have a feeling those feet were pretty tired by the time she took that photo. We had done a lot of walking.
There was a lot to see and do inside the NFL Experience and on game day, there were many signs added to help us find our way through security and then on to the stadium. I’m glad GN noticed the one on the floor.
Some time after the big game, when I had already returned home, I received an email from the Director of Communications for the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee. In an attachment, she included a photograph of Bob Costas wearing the Super Scarf I had made for him. He is joined in the photo by Allison Melangton, CEO of the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee. I was thrilled to receive the photo.
Last night, just before I hit the sack, I received what I think will be my final Super Bowl photo. Indybro took the time to don his Super Bowl volunteer uniform with the scarf I knit for him.
He received a Super Scarf as part of his uniform and he wore that scarf. All along, however, I had planned to knit him a copy of the scarf with the Roman Numerals on it, because it was his idea in the first place. I didn’t knit his scarf until after the Super Bowl was over, because I had committed myself to making as many Super Scarves as I could fit into my schedule. Indybro knew that.
Thanks for the photo Indybro. You worked so hard during the Super Bowl activities and it’s folks like you who answered the call for volunteers that contributed to the success of the event and the safety of visitors.
I miss football . . .
