Last season the NFL shined in the Lone Star State, as we had a shot to rock the city of Dallas, arriving there for Super Bowl weekend pumped and ready to party for the Super Bowl battle between the Steelers and the Packers.
While the trip was great, and the city was buzzing from the moment of arrival, there was one problem – the weather. The ice storm that hit the area before and after our arrival did put a bit of a damper on the weekends events, but overall, the ice melted and it was time to head to the new Cowboys Stadium, the home that Jerry Jones built.
The atmosphere around a Super Bowl is simply amazing. From people trying to make a huge buck selling tickets, to people hawking merchandise of just about any team, the fun thing to do hours before the game is simply to walk around and people watch.
Getting in the stadium is never easy, and last season with over 100,000 fans at the game, it was a challenge, but props to the folks in Dallas and the police and security for getting all the fans, us included, into the game in a timely manner.
That leads us to this season, as the NFL will take the 46th version of their “Big Game” to the city of Indianapolis. Right now the 49ers are for sure into the playoffs for the first time in nine seasons. The team is red hot, and it’s not impossible to think they will be the NFC rep in the biggest game on earth in February!
The game will be played on February 5th at Lucas Oil Stadium, and if there’s one thing you can bet on, it’s that once again the team that plays in Indy during the season – the Colts, won’t be playing in the game that day.
For most, getting to a Super Bowl is darn near impossible. Unless your willing to sell your blood or take out a second mortgage, getting tickets to the game for less than about $2500 is impossible.
That’s where this next bit of news comes in.
