Super Bowl, Super Time

We had a blast!

It was my good fortune to receive 2 tickets to the Super Bowl from the Indiana Blood Center. My daughter, Cammie, and I had a wonderful time walking around Super Bowl Village, watching the intrepid souls on the ziplines, seeing people juggling, dancing, and a kid who was pounding the daylights out of some buckets. It was amazing to watch the variety of things going on between the Convention Center and Monument Circle. The NFL Experience was not open on Sunday because that was the area where most of us waited to go into the stadium itself. Our seats were high, but not the nosebleed sections.

Thank you to all who participated in our first Indiana Blood Center Mobile drive and thank you to Dr. Engel for making it possible. We hope to be able to help again in the future. Breaking New Ground had the honor of both the first donor (Steve Swain) and the last (Paul Jones)!
