Prices plummet for SB tickets
ESPN, by Darren Rovell

Original Article

Posted By:PChristopher, 1/25/2014 8:31:35 AM

Two hungry fan bases and the wealth of the New York metropolitan area had some guessing that Super Bowl XLVIII would turn out to be the most expensive ticket in Super Bowl history. However, judging from the reaction of the resale ticket market in the past 24 hours, it could turn out to be one of the least expensive. On Friday, nine days before the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium, the cheapest ticket to buy for the Super Bowl was $1,779 on NFL Ticket Exchange, the league´s official resale site. That´s $409 cheaper than it was

Comments:
It must be nice not to have a mortgage to worry about or food to buy so that you can pay these prices! I wouldn´t pay this much for them even if they were considered exceptionally cheap.

I´d much rather watch it in either a sports bar or at a party. You miss a lot being at a live game.

One of the reasons for the drop in ticket prices is that no one outside of Seattle gives a pookie about the Seahawks.

Obviously this is just for the Capitalist bourgeoisie. Why doesn´t Sir William De Bla-Bla-Bla-sio doesn´t just wave his scepter and mandate that tickets cost $10.00 ea. so that his dumbed-down, spoon-fed, media-influenced, government-dependant, Kool-Aid drinking, uninformed short attention span door knobs have chance to go?

Anyone willing to pay $1,800 to sit in an open NJ stadium for 5+ hours on a cold January night featuring a "light winters mix of snow and rain" in order to watch Rastafarian coiffed psychos should be required to pass a sobriety test. Or at least the Richard Sherman post game psychiatric exam.

Except for the players, their agents and the many baby mommas of the players, who really cares about which team wins this game? The show must go on, but it can go on without me.

#3 - The tickets to the game have long been sold, the NFL secure in its take. This is about the re-sale market...sport´s version of crony capitalism. They´ll be selling in the parking lot for less than face at game time. They always do.

#9 I´m with you. My husband and I have been watching Peyton play football since his days in college. He was always a joy to watch somebody who was not only good but enjoyed the game to its fullest. He is one of a kind and we would love to see him win this contest. We´ll be watching even though we will have to endure the constant scream of the Seattle fans. It gets annoying after a while.

Yes it´s all about TV considering that 320 million of us couldn´t fit into the stadium even if we wished to do so but the barely-suppressed story of the NY/NJ Super Bowl is that it´s about as uplifting as a North Korean military parade with oppressive security to match.

From the pedantic protection of sponsors and their logos (see also: Olympics) to the dubious legality of bans on walking, talking, parking, tailgates, etc., the Super Bowl has become a bizarre exercise by the NFL in creating its own bubble of unreality with no detail left unmolested. Which allows me to chuckle at the thought of Prince getting drenched during his halftime performance - the NFL can´t control the weather despite their probable belief that they can.

Since this square peg-round hole Jersey Bowl was announced, all I´ve heard from people is ´I hope it snows like mad.´ Hear hear!

Having the superbowl in NJ in the middle of winter, OUTDOORS, is the height of stupidity. Really, can´t any of these people look up what the weather there has been like for the last 100 years???

Add to that the NFL searching everyone and not allowing you to bring anything in and who would WANT to go sit outside and freeze to death?

It´s no wonder the NFL is loosing fans and viewers, it´s run by idiots.

Only $1200-$1800 just to get in and sit out in the open? What a deal!

I would suppose a New Jersey venue in February was only considered because of the expectation of Global Warming.

Even so, I have no plans to miss the game: Peyton Manning is one of the best QBs ever to have played the game, and the SeaHawk QB used to play for the Big Ten´s Wisconsin Badgers.

Gonna get me a big bowl of popcorn and watch it on TV.

Nope, sorry #15. Not a SF fan. My team isn´t even worth writing about this year.

BUT SF would not have been throwing the ball had the officiating staff NOT made it clear that they had $$ on the Seahags.

Roughing the kicker-missed call. SF retains ball.
Intentional grounding-Harbaugh had to scream for 90 seconds to get that called, and it was done so ONLY after the Ref looked at the screen for guidance.
Fumble recovery at the 1. CLEARLY recovered by SF, CLEARLY Stolen out of his hands as he lay on the ground in pain. REFUSED to use same screen as IG call to call this one correctly.
Ergo, passes must be thrown.
Sorry, it was OBVIOUS that the officiating stunk.
Good luck without your 12th man.

The names of the six-member jury panel that acquitted George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin have been made public for the first time, after a new court order, records show. Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, who had previously ordered the jurors´ identifying information be kept confidential, granted access to the names in a ruling March 21. Zimmerman´s defense asked the judge in June to keep the names secret until six months after the verdict.

President Barack Obama, his wife and the first daughters may have to cut their latest vacation short because of Russia’s meddling in Ukraine. The Obama family’s current plan for the weekend is to escape the cold, snowy doldrums of Washington, D.C. for some rest and relaxation in sunny Key Largo, Fla., reports the Daily Mail. However, despite Obama’s earnest invocations of international law, pro-Russian forces and the Russian government are making swift military and political moves in Ukraine’s Crimea region. Consequently, the Key Largo holiday could be in peril. “It is possible the president may return to the White House

More than half of the voters polled rated his performance "fair" or "poor," according to the Marist College/The Wall Street Journal/WNBC poll. Just ten percent of voters gave de Blasio the highest "excellent" mark while 29 percent categorized his performance as good.

Cop-killer case sinks
Obama Justice nominee

Senators blocked President Obama’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s civil rights division Wednesday in a bipartisan filibuster, with opponents saying his history defending a convicted cop-killer in the Supreme Court made him a poor choice. The defeat of Debo P. Adegbile, who as an attorney for the NAACP backed appeals by former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, is a major blow to Mr. Obama. Democrats changed the rules last year to overcome filibusters with just 50 votes, but Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t even muster all of his own troops Wednesday.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
