They should play indoors or in mild weather stadiums. Maybe they should alight permanently in Hawaii. That way its a long trip for everybody. PLUS a Super Bowl ticket could include a Hawaiian trip in midwinter. Win here, win there, win win everywhere. Winning!

That is actually a darn good idea...

Then throw in the uniqueness of the SB. And this may be my only shot at being able to get to a SB where travel is not a concern. I don't need a hotel. No added expense for the most part. And what are now looking like record low ticket prices. It may be a once in a lifetime shot for me.
It is different than a normal NFL game. Most of the people around you will be people there on corporate giveaways. For instance some companies give their best salesman a Superbowl ticket.

They probably won't be fans of the teams there. They are there for the experience. If the weather turns south, they will seek the heated corridors in the bowels of the stadium. That being said, if you have the money to spare it will be okay.

I would recommend going to the Fan Zone down at Times Square. That will be more fun than the actual Superbowl to tell you the truth.

Disagree...its going to be AWESOME watching an SB played in the elements. Not a snowstorm mind you but a little snow falling and 30 degrees would just be fabulous.

Big time price inflation since the first SB tickets were $10

I would love to go to a super bowl one day, and luckily I love in Florida so I have three stadiums that could possibly host it again, hopefully when that time does come around I will have the money, and maybe, just maybe the Patriots will be in it and really make it worth while for me!

That would be a noble donation. But will you? Probably not. You'll spend the $1500 on who-knows-what and never know where it went. If you spent it on a Superbowl ticket you'd have a memory to last you a lifetime.

I don't have $1500 to put down on ANYTHING. So, you're right, I won't. But as to spending money, I've donated more in my income bracket to heat sharing programs. I live in a zone of very cold weather, and the natural gas price is taking a serious ratchet upwards. So I'm putting a chunk of my money into that. To accomplish that, I did two things. I reduced my satellite TV bill, giving up ESPN. And I canceled my Sprint contract, recouping $80 a month. The entire reason for these things was the feeling that electronics were diverting money needed more for charity. Satellite and wireless phone services are indulgences. Truth is, so far as football goes, I could see more than enough on free TV. But nonsports things are present on satellite service that I can't get via broadcast. So I'm on the base level service.

So, I do know where my money is going. It is keeping people from frostbite and hunger. No, that's not a "memory", but it is removal of a value-conflict.

If you can swing it I would go for it. If you really want to go to a superbowl, but the money and disruption are the factors that keep you from it, I would go for it.
