Indianapolis Celebrates Hosting Super Bowl

Indianapolis is still celebrating its win in securing the 2012 Super Bowl for Lucas Oil Stadium as coordinators start to plan for it.  Members of the Colts organization and the Indianapolis Super Bowl bid committee thanked supporters on Wednesday.  Quarterback Peyton Manning says hosting the big game is fitting for Indianapolis fans.  Harshman Middle School was chosen for the rally because it is in the Near Eastside area expected to see improvements as a result of the Super Bowl. 

An enclosed practice facility for one of the Super Bowl teams will be built on the campus of next door Arsenal Tech High School.  Indianapolis Public Schools will eventually operate the building, which organizers hope will spur neighborhood redevelopment.  Work to secure eight-million-dollars in funding for that project will not begin for a few months.  National and philanthropic organizations could be interested in pledging funds, according to bud committee chairman Mark Miles.
