You've got to be kidding

Gotta go to the Super Bowl, but can't afford the $600 to $1,900 (or more) tickets? The NFL has a deal for you:

From ESPN: The NFL will sell a $200 ticket to the game, but it comes with a catch. Fans will have to sit on the grass on the East Side of the stadium and watch the game on the huge outside HD TV screens.

Apparently, the "seats" are available to some season ticket-holders, and they have to be purchased in blocks of 4.

Correct me if I'm wrong ... but seems to me that come game night, there will be no shortage of places where, for a lot less than $200, fans can have a meal, a couple of drinks and watch the game on ... er ... TV!

Unfortunately, I suspect there will be plenty of folks who will be more than willing to part with $200, drink overpriced beer and listen to all the folks having fun inside the stadium ...
