If you can’t find a ticket to go to the Super Bowl there is an alternative. The NFL announced this week that a $200 ticket will be made available to stand outside of Cowboys Stadium and watch the game on televisions.
The tickets are only available in groups of four. So yes, you will need to find three other people who want to waste their money if you would like to do this. Even better, they think this will be a tough ticket to get.
Anyone would love to go to the Super Bowl just once in their life, but does standing outside count? To the NFL, it does. They are going to count these tickets as part of the official attendance. That makes complete sense.
Not interested in these tickets? Here are some alternative Super Bowl themed things you can buy for $200:
You can download “Back to the Super Bowl” by C.W.A. (yes, that stands for Cheeseheads With Attitude) 202 times. The anacranym is a play on the old rap group N.W.A and Cheeseheads of course refers to Packer fans. The best part about this is that it is from 2008 when Packers went 6-10.
Buy eight copies of Super Bowl XXXI-XL Collector’s Set for $24.99 a piece. It is not every Super Bowl, but the credits say, “Starring Allen Aldridge, Steve Atwater, Steve Bono, and Boys II Men.” Yes, Boys II Men.
You could purchase a game-worn Eugene Washington jersey for $125. The remaining $75 can be used on a prostitute like Robinson did the night before the only Super Bowl he played in.
If none of that interests you, but you still can’t get a $200 ticket, there is one more alternative. You can get a Cowboys Stadium replica to stand next to for $101.15, a 10” television for $58 to watch the game on and an autographed picture of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for $25 to remind you how much more money he has than you.
