That's really not a lot of beer, imo.

Let's round up and say they pulled $2M in revenue in alcohol sales.  At $8 each that's 250,000 beers.  Which seems like a lot but when those are sold over seven home games, that comes to 35,714 beers per game, or about 1/3 of the stadium having one beer.  I would've guessed it to be higher.  But maybe that's because I drink a lot.

The problem with that option for me are the open threads and Twitter.  I don't want to read about a play then see it 10 minutes later when my DVR catches up.  Just fewer commercials and don't stop the clock on 1st downs except for last few minutes of the 4th quarter would probably speed up the game by 10-15 minutes.

Jason doesn't want two platforms to manage if I remember right.  I wouldn't hold your breath for an 11W app.

Where do I start...

Indianapolis hosts the largest single day sporting event in the world with estimates of 300k in attendance.

The freeway system has been almost completely redone over the last 10 years with many bridges and roadways being reconstructed from scratch.

There's something like 7000 hotel rooms in downtown Indy, and close to 22,000 in the city.  

We've hosted a Super Bowl

There are countless bars and restaurants within walking distance of Lucas Oil Stadium

Is it New York, or LA, or Chicago?  No.  But I've been to those cities and while they may be better in some aspects, none of them can host a sporting event like Indy can.  There's a reason the Final Four is held here every few years.

BARS AND RESTAURANTS: The Slippery Noodle, Claddagh, Brothers Bar, The Pub, Tavern on South, High Velocity

Dakich is hands down the most moronic person in sports media, and that's saying a lot considering Stephen A, Clay Travis, and Skip Bayless are all currently employed.

I'm 36. Have a hard time putting a regular season win against Purdue over winning a national championship. And I included 3 games from the 2002 season
