Yes, There Was a Sniper's Nest At the Super Bowl

Who knew? Photos have been making the rounds showing what appears to be an Indianapolis police sniper at his post high in the rafters above the stadium before the Super Bowl.

Turns out the photos are real. Trained marksmen, binoculars in hand, perch in a sniper's nest during the Super Bowl just in case things get crazy.

Deadspin tracked down who the snipers were and why the pictures were taken. Full details here

(Ashton Kutcher spotted a couple of rooftop snipers at the 2009 Super Bowl, and shot a wiggly video to prove it.)
