Super Bowl Tickets, Get Them While They're Not
Written by 

Ed Staton--Louisiana SportsSuper Bowl Notes: As of Monday, there were 1,907 Super Bowl tickets available on StubHub.com--with prices running from $2,501 for a seat in the upper corner above the end  zone at Cowboys Stadium to $22,223 for a lower-level seat on the 50-yard line. Those are the asking prices, however, and there's no guarantee they will command that much. The face value of tickets is $600 and $800 for sets in the upper bowl, $900 for seats in the lower bowl and $1,200 for club seats. Sales on secondary market are where prices skyrocket. The NFL distributes 17.5 per cent of the tickets to each the Steelers and the Packers; 5 per cent to the Cowboys, the host team; 1.2 per cent to each of the remaining 29 teams; and 25.2 per cent to the league...

According to StubHub, people began buying Super Bowl tickets on the site as early as last summer, at an average price of $3,678. Prior to the weekend's conference championship games, a Ring of Honor suite -- a l5-ticket package with catered food and drinks -- sold to a buyer in Texas for $73,163..."We saw more inventory at this time last year than right now," said a spokesman for StubHub, referring to the game between the Saints and the Colts in South Florida...

Getting tickets to the game is only part of the challenge, Finding hotel rooms in North Texas isn't easy, either. Sports Travel is offering a package for $4,195 per person for an Embassy Suite room 26 miles from the stadium, a rental car, a pregame party and seats in the upper bowl above the end zone...

An estimated total of 105,000 will attend the Super Bowl. About 95,000 fans will be in the seats and suites of the $1.3 billion Cowboys Stadium (seats along with 5,000 media members and staff.  About 5,000 people paid $200 apiece to be in an area outside the stadium watching big-screen TVs. The record of 103,985 was set in the 1980 Super Bowl at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Cal. The record crowd could exceed the population of Green Bay, which is about 104,000.

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
