Vince Vasquez, a senior policy analyst with the National University System’s Institute for Policy Research, offered some compelling ideas for building, and showing off, team spirit in a blog posting Sunday night. He cited examples from other cities in recent weeks. San Francisco illuminated City Hall and its international airport in 49ers red and gold. Philadelphia commissioned an ice sculpture and held a pep rally for the Eagles outside City Hall. Indianapolis orchestrated a weeklong “Light The Town Blue” campaign that included a special lighting display at Lucas Oil Stadium, a pep rally, and a city proclamation encouraging residents to light their homes blue.
