Yeah, that's the ticket

February 2006
Sporting News;2/3/2006, Vol. 230 Issue 5, p32
The article presents information on the prices of tickets at the Super Bowl football event in its 39-year history. Even if fans were big spenders at the first Super Bowl--then known as the AFL-NFL World Championship Game--a ticket would have set them back about the cost of an XL beer. What they spend now on a tank of gas would've gotten them into any of the first 17 games. But fans headed to Detroit, Michigan for this year's event with thoughts of buying from a scalper had better get ready for a case of sticker shock.
