Super Bowl Wanderings
I spent a good portion of the last four days taking in all the sights and sounds of the Super Bowl. Downtown hadn’t looked that good in decades! It was a sight to be seen, with all the spotlights lighting up the entire sky. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen so many people downtown at one time. I had a lot of fun wandering through the Winter Blast and taking photos of the festivities.
Things went much better than I had expected. People seemed to be really enjoying themselves. My only real complaint was the DDOT shuttle service. I did not appreciate waiting nearly 2.5 hours in the parking lot at Fort & Cass for the Northland shuttle bus on Saturday night. Apparently four times as many people took the bus down as they thought were going to. It just goes to show that Detroiters would use mass transit if they’d build a decent mass transit system here!
Of course now it is all over. While I was glad to see all the activity downtown, I am glad to see things returning to normal.
