Blogger Savages Poor Indianapolis

The Big Lead’s Tyler Duffy (what is it with bloggers named Tyler?) wrote an entertaining and scathing look at the prospects of several US cities to host the 2018 World Cup soccer match.

As part of his rundown, Indianapolis got donkey punched…

Leaving Chicago off the list is unconscionable, especially when Indianapolis was included.

Indianapolis is the most boring, nondescript and generally awful large city in the United States.  No one is excited to go there.  No one has a compelling reason to go there if not for a budget-conscious convention.  It is like Applebees, but less zany.

The city has no organic existence.  Indiana’s founders decided to create a city near no body of water and in the geometric center of the state.  Facing limitless possibilities, they named it “Indiana City.”  What is the difference between Indianapolis and a tub of yogurt?  The tub of yogurt would produce a culture after 200 years.

This event pits America against England and Spain, to name two.  To match up with Wembley, Anfield, Old Trafford, the Bernabeu and the Nou Camp, we’re pushing forward Lucas Oil Stadium and Indianapolis ambience.  Cleveland would have been an upgrade.

Yeah, it’s nasty, but also kind of funny.
