Colts fans will love Jim Irsay’s response to Al Michaels’ Super Bowl city take
Jim Irsay’s response to Al Michaels’ statement about Super Bowls is music to Indianapolis Colts fans’ ears.
One of the best things this NFL season has given us is ESPN’s Monday Night Football ManningCast. Peyton and Eli Manning, and their countless guests, provide comical commentary and plenty of good stories. The only bad thing about it is the Manning Cast Curse.
One of the guests this past Monday was Sunday Night Football commentator Al Michaels. During his segment on the broadcast, Michaels and Eli Manning recounted their shared Super Bowl experience— Super Bowl XLVI.
The Giants, of course, won and Eli was awarded the MVP while Michaels was on the call. But the part that got Hoosiers excited was when Michaels said that “Indianapolis is a perfect place to host the Super Bowl.” That’s where the game was in 2012…and hasn’t been since.
If Colts’ owner Jim Irsay had it his way, it will be there again…at least, based off his Twitter activity. He quickly joined in to agree with Michaels’ claim.
Colts owner Jim Irsay would love to host another Super Bowl
Indianapolis has played host to a number of sporting events including the Super Bowl, Big 10 Championship, March Madness, and The Combine…and all seem to leave guests happy. So it’s no surprise that Michaels feels this way, and even less of a surprise that Irsay does.
As for now, the 2022, 2023, and 2025 Super Bowls are already scheduled with venues; SoFi Stadium, State Farm Stadium, and the Caesars Superdome, respectively. Indianapolis will have to work on winning bids in 2024, 2026, or some year down the line.
In the meantime, the franchise can focus on getting the team to a Super Bowl while they wait to see if the game will return to the city.
