It's that time of year again, the Super Bowl!  And to many Northwest Indiana Hoosiers it could be a big "who cares" because there's no Bears and no Colts in Super Bowl 51.  Who is in it are the New England Patriots, who have won four Super Bowls and all within recent history, in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2015.  The Patriots will face the Atlanta Falcons, who have never won a Super Bowl.  But they did make it to the big game in 1999.  Does the game hold any interest people in the Region?  The Lakeshore finds out.
