Super Bowl tickets drop in price...a little

From where I sit it looks like Super Bowl tickets are getting cheaper...


Well, sort of cheaper. The price on resale sites has dropped to $1,700 for cheap seats. Keep in mind, face value for those is $500, with the top ticket face value at $2,600. Even as a Seahawks fan, those prices make me gag. Seattle played 8 home games this season, plus 2 pre-season games. For the cheapest price of a single ticket to the Super Bowl, you can get a lower bowl season ticket to the Seahawks. Yes, I would love to go to the Super Bowl. But honestly, that will never be in my price range. And judging by the quick price drop, a lot of people seem to feel the same way. The other thing to keep in mind, is how much the quality of the home experience is constantly improving. That's not just the game we see on the screen, but everything that's available. For starters, the Super Bowl ads are half the show. Add to that all the information through various on-line sources that allow access to instant review and updates to stats. What's Lynch's yards per carry? How about Wilson's? Has Manning thrown more to his left or right? And how many times has he said 'Omaha'? Plus the food is really all you can eat and there's no line-ups. It will always be expensive to go to the Super Bowl. And it will always be a sell out. But now the game is facing a challenge. It's quickly becoming more fun to stay home. 
At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
