    I know I shouldnt be counting my chicken before they have sex, but im looking into buying tickets to the colts first playoff game. Is Indy a easy city to drive around? Is the rca dome easy to find? Id be driving from maine, only about 16 hours.

    You'll be fine.

    Hard to prepare yourself for the smell, though.

    Indy's very easy to navigate, much MUCH easier than Boston.

    Indy's a really small city with few skyscrapers. You'll be able to see the RCA dome from miles away. There's still city traffic though, so I'd still get a map from somewhere.

    Counting your chickens before they have sex?

    Isn't it don't count your chickens before they hatch?

    It's very easy to navigate around here. i-465 circles the city. THE RCA Dome is easy to get to downtown. Plenty of good restaurants, motels, etc. everywhere. If this matchup does happen, expect an ungodly demand for tix to this game.

    Right, Number one seed is guaranteed to play the lowest remaining seed.

    Yep. I wouldn't mind seeing Pittsburgh bump off Indy and come to Foxboro for the AFC Championship game. Stranger things have happened.

    It's pretty easy to drive here. People here whine and complain about traffic here, but they have never seen traffic like Boston's traffic. I guess whining and complaining is a natural trait among Clot fans. Anyway, you said it's going to take you about 16hrs from Maine? I drove from outside of Boston and it took me 18hrs. How fast are you planning on driving?

    Easy to get to the RCA dome

    Super easy to get to the RCA dome. Put in RCA Dome, Indianapolis in Yahoo Maps or Mapquest and you'll get a map. It's on the west side of downtown, Exit off of I 70 at the McCarty street or West Street Exits and go north a few blocks. You will be pointing right at the Dome. You will see it from I-70, it's the huge white pillowtop, absolutely no missing it. All the digging you will see in front of the Dome is the construction for the new stadium. There are loads of hotels and restaurants right there, and the Circle Center Mall is right there too. Hopefully a decent hotel room is still available by the time you would know if the Patriots are playing at the Dome. Downtown Indy is a nice place, lots of revitalization, and very easy to get around.

    I only drove through Gary, Indiana.

    It's very scenic, though. :D

    Well, Rome. But, if you'd kept it to the U.S., I'd agree. By navigate, I assume you meant drive. In Rome, they come after you on the sidewalks!

    I drove through Indianapolis once on a coast to coast trip. Only thing I can say is if Green Bay can support an NFL team, I guess Indy can.
