How much are you willing to pay to see the Lions in a Ford Field Super Bowl?

Former Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell brought up an interesting question. He just posed it to the wrong guy.

How much would you pay for two tickets to see the Lions play in the Super Bowl at Ford Field?

$10,000?

$15,000?

$20,000?

$50,000?

I am not a Lions fan. I am a Lions observer. Therefore this would not be an unbelievable moment for me to see the Lions play in a Super Bowl at Ford Field. It would be amazing and shocking, but not enough to drain my savings account.

That question is better suited for you. How much would you be willing to spend to attend the game with your mom or dad? Son or daughter? Best friend from work?

You don’t have to leave the city. You don’t have to pay for hotel or air fare. You wake up on game day and drive downtown to see the Lions take on Tom Brady and the Buffalo Bills as Brady continues his NFL victory tour 10 years from now.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will become the first team to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium when they face the Kansas City Chiefs tonight at Raymond James Stadium. Of course Brady will be there as the Bucs quarterback. Isn’t he at every Super Bowl?

Wait until he leads the Minnesota Vikings or Denver Broncos at age 55.

Tickets are going for a steep price. I glanced at a ticket exchange that is selling tickets between $4,900 and $10,333 each. There are pairs of suite tickets going for $21,000. You can keep them as far as I’m concerned. I will enjoy the game on my big screen television munching on chicken wings made on the smoker and finished in the air fryer.

Live events don’t thrill me. I’d just assume lounge on my bean bag in my basement and watch on the big screen television with the 75 different camera angles. I can cook my own food or go to Jets for pizza. And I don’t have to elbow drunks to get to the bathroom.

I only have to shove one drunk out of the way on the way to the bathroom. My wife.

I’m thrifty. I’d only overpay for an event if my son or daughter begged me for weeks. I don’t include the wife because she would not ask me to shell out thousands for anything unless it was a trip to Hawaii or Paris.

The other day I went shopping to frame my CMU diploma. It was build your frame concept and my frame came out to $259. I went to Bed Bath and Beyond and bought a frame for $8.92.

So how far are you willing to go? Lions Super Bowl at Ford Field.

How much are you willing to pay for this once in a life time event?

  1. I am with you Terry now that I am 61. Watching games in the comfort of my home with these great TV’s beat spending way too much money for the big game. Also, I don’t have a lot of money so I guess if I were to do something big with my sports nut daughter, I probably wouldn’t spend more that a thousand dollars for 2 tickets to something bid like a Rose Bowl with Michigan in it. I admire that you were able to be the observer and not a fan being that you grew up in Detroit. Being able to do that had to be difficult. So when the Tigers, Pistons and Red Wings were having their great seasons, you could honestly separate yourself from being a fan?
