So while we were in Indiana (truly NOT a bad place to be, thank you very much) we went into downtown Indie a couple times.
The photo above is a Soldiers and Sailors Monument ~ unfortunately there was construction going on around it so there are, obviously, traffic cones etc.
Yes, and a local watering hole with an outrageous name - it didn't, however, open until some ungodly hour like seven or eight in the evening, when we'd (well I, at least, would be) be settling in and getting ready to turn on the electric blanket and see y'all in the morning!!
When we headed into town I had to do a mental (??!?!?! yeah right) refresher of pro sports teams in Indy - and I still had brain cramps. With all that said, above is Conseco Fieldhouse, which I had no clue what it was, and now that I know it makes less sense to me. Jose Conseco plays what????? Well ummmmm wouldn't you assume (yeah a person should NEVER assume) that this would be where HIS sport is played? NOT .... this is where the Indiana Pacers play (Dylan, this photo is for YOU!)
Below, sadly, is graffiti, well is it graffiti if you hire a printer to print and hang this huge statement ~ in the downtown area - sad but true, I couldn't have made that up...... just an interesting (???) spot along the way!
On to more fun, enjoyable and entertaining sights ~ this Lucas Oil Stadium is where the Indianapolis Colts play and DAMN they weren't playing at home while we were there!!!
With that said, we have had no success getting to a pro football game in our travels. I've never been to a pro game and we've passed through three cities (I think) that have pro teams in the last month or so and when we are there they aren't - Detroit, Indianapolis and St. Louis ~ fiddlesticks and darn darn darn ....
With all that said, or written, our downtown Indianapolis experience ended with a parking ticket when we got back to the car - welcome to Indy tourists, we LOVE when you come to our city and don't get back to your car in time (but we do thank you for spending copious amounts of dollars shopping and dining in our city), amid all these empty spaces, and we get to collect ... Welcome to Indianapolis ....
