Indiana Sports Corp. intimidates IBJ

IBJ Letters To The Editor

We were so close. Months ago, Indiana Sports Corp. set an internal goal of getting 100 companies to participate in the 2010 ISC Corporate Challenge. We ended up with a record 99 company teams and 4,500 participants, joining in two days of athletic competition, fitness and office camaraderie. We actually had hit our goal of 100 companies a few weeks ago until IBJ—part of the fabric of the central Indiana business community—withdrew its team.

So, make no mistake about it, we are calling you out, in your own publication. Indiana Sports Corp. has about 30 staffers; we both run the event and run in the event. We want to go head-to-head with Team IBJ next year! But, if you think you can’t rally the troops for an afternoon of running, cycling, bowling, cornhole, golf chipping, etc., at least have six employees come to Carroll Stadium for the 15 seconds it would take us to dominate you in the tug-of-war. It’s a grudge match!

Start your training this week by loading all those stacks of IBJ into your delivery trucks. Or better yet, tie a rope to that delivery truck and chase it around town. Whatever works. We will see you next September at the ISC Corporate Challenge! This is your last year of ducking Team ISC.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
