In the stadium, on the water taxi headed home, on boom boxes lashed to pedicabs transporting Swifties to Lumen Field where the actual concert was, I heard more Taylor Swift this past weekend then I’ve heard in my entire life up to this point, and I streamed Folklore when the pandemic was happening and there was literally nothing else to do.

Please take a minute to read this column from the former Indy-based Athletic reporter Bob Kravitz, who really spills the tea about what working at The Athletic was like, and if you have any friends who are interested in Indy-based sports, please send them the link and encourage them to subscribe. Or if you want to gift a sub in memory of our beloved colleague Tim Cantu—Indy is just a couple hours from Tim’s alma mater of Notre Dame, well, that’d be great as well. After all, someone has to keep tabs on Notre Dame great/Red Sox prospect/Mike Ford cosplayer Niko Kavadas down here for Tim.
