The Super Bowl (and almost all sports) have become for the elitist. No longer can the real fans who have families attend games without it being a "once in a lifetime" event or have to take out a second mortgage to pay it off.
The Super Bowl in NY/NJ is not for NYers. Its for the Woody Johnsons and Mayor Bloombergs of the world. I hope it fails miserably.
Many years ago, I had the opportunity to go to the very first XFL game. A friend offered me a ticket to sit in the second row on the 50 yard-line. How could I pass up this opportunity? It was mid February, about 30 degrees and bright sunshine. We lasted until halftime and it wasnt even a question about leaving. Its one thing to go to an outdoor event in November or December where the cold has not set in yet. But a February event outside at night when winter has set in for a few weeks? Good luck freezing your a$$es off.
