For $200, you can stand outside the Super Bowl and watch it on a big screen
Remember the scene in "Animal House" in which Flounder and Pinto are repeatedly forced to sit in the Omegas' room for losers? Well, now you can experience that same feeling for yourself. At the Super Bowl. And it'll cost you $200.
The NFL is selling tickets for 200 bucks a head to the "party plaza" outside Cowboys Stadium at Super Bowl XLV in Dallas to lucky fans who can then can stand around and watch the game on big HD screens. Imagine how big the ticketholders who walk past and mock you will look on those screens. Awesome!
But wait! It gets awesomer! Tickets will first be offered to Cowboys' season-ticket holders, who must buy in blocks of four. (For which they'll get four tickets, four programs, four scarves and a parking pass.)
There's an actual reason for doing this. Cowboys owner and genial XLV host Jerry Jones has said he'd like this game to break the all-time attendance record (103,985 in 1980) for the Super Bowl. And the "party plaza" partiers will count toward that number, for unfathomable reasons.
"We've never done this before," NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told ESPN Dallas.
