Swimsuits in Michigan

The Saugatuck-Douglas Convention & Visitors Bureau in Michigan has signed an agreement with the Indianapolis Colts to arrange for the Colts Cheerleaders to shoot their 2014 Swimsuit Calendar in the Saugatuck-Douglas area next week.

As the Visitors Bureau points out in a press release, the agreement will provide the CVB with "promotional opportunities for the Saugatuck-Douglas area".

This Indianapolis Observer wonders why the Colts aren't shooting their swimsuit calendar in their own home town. (Of course, she also wonders why the Colts aren't the subjects of the photos, but that's another discussion.)

Yeah, the realities are that the Saugatuck-Douglas CVB must've dangled significant cash before their eyes, but -- heck -- haven't we ponied up enough Indianapolis tax dollars for Jim Irsay? Why is he (and "our" team) promoting travel to Michigan?
