Chicago is #3 population wise...and I think #2 for corporate HQs. Indy is a small city. SMALL city.

I really expected to see a lot of charter traffic for airlines here in Indy....but there really hasn't been a whole lot.

on top of it the beras have a vast history, with generations of displaced fans all over the country...

where as the colts have a very short history, because a large majority of fans who were there for the baltimore colts bolted from the team when they bolted from baltimore and are now raven fans (or redskin, or "other")... much in the same way giant and dodger fans are now, mostly, met fans.

and anyhoo, indiana's a basketball state. football will always be second.

Thats the beauty of my scenario...in this situation they don't kick the PAT...I've seen it happen, in fact I think it happened this year once...but obviously never in a Super Bowl...imagine the craziness with all the squares...pandemonium!

Indeed...but you should see how whipped up this place is right now!

The new Colts stadium being built (Lucas Oil Stadium) will (in my opinion) look like a "Fieldhouse." The design makes it look like an overgrown Canseco Fieldhouse, or Hinkle Fieldhouse (where Butler plays and where they filmed "Hoosiers").

Good! Just like Atomic Bono said, it's a good time to be there. I'm so happy they're enjoying it.

NEW Colts Stadium?! I didn't know about this! Why do they need it? What's wrong with the Dome? What will they do with it?

It's kind of funny that a diehard fan didn't know their teams is building a new stadium.

it does... i've seen the artwork. and i believe the final four will be played at lucas oil in 2010 (with host school, ironicly enough, butler)

do they still plan on having it be a retractable roof? you'd think they'd want to keep full control over the elements for peyton.

oh, and you do not have to tell me where they filmed hoosiers... every scene of that movie is permanently engrained into my mind

I guess they felt they need a bigger, better stadium yes it will have a retractable roof, and slightly bigger capacity (up to 10,000 more I think) part of it may be that Indy is vying for the Super Bowl in 2011... also as headache said, the final four. and they're going to expand the Convention Center where the Dome gets demolished.

I can't wait til tomorrow guys I'm having a bunch of friends over and we're gonna play Madden 07 on my brother's Wii until the game (nintendo wii = best present for your brother to get ever) friday was cool, everyone at school was wearing colts stuff, and we had decorated a lot of the teacher's doors, and everywhere you drive there is Colts stuff...

let's hope for an awesome game tomorrow

The dome only holds about 60,000 and it is one of the smallest stadiums in the NFL. There is a webcam on the Colts site showing the progress, U2Kitten. When I saw the Colts in October the stadium was pretty far along.

Cool! I'm glad they are expecting that kind of crowd and that 60,000 seats is not enough to hold all the Colts fans!

The RCA Dome is a dump! It was great when it was built in the early 80's, but it really doesn't fit the needs of the current NFL economy - and it is the smallest NFL venue right now. The Metrodome is only slightly better than the RCA Dome (despite their stricking similar appearance).

They had made a lot of progress with the stadium...then it got cold. Part of the roof steel is in place.

2010 Final Four! I almost feel as if they are building it for the Final Four, rather than the Colts. The State of Basketball!

I need to see a game at Hinkle - especially while Butler is on a roll!

MIAMI -- Michael Irvin was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday despite a troubled past, though voters denied entry to retired NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

The former Dallas Cowboys receiver, who won three Super Bowls in the 1990s, got in on his third try.

Irvin pleaded no contest in 1996 to felony cocaine possession. Four years later, he was arrested on drug possession charges, but they were later dropped.

The 40 Hall voters were criticized by two of Irvin's former teammates, Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman, for previously bypassing the wideout, who retired in 1999.

They didn't ignore him this time.

Tagliabue was eliminated in the first round of voting.

Also voted in were running back Thurman Thomas, offensive lineman Bruce Matthews, defensive back Roger Wehrli and two nominees of the veterans' committee -- tight end Charlie Sanders and guard Gene Hickerson.

Does that Lucas Oil have a retractable roof? And is it owned by George Lucas?

I'm sorry to hear the Dome will be torn down
