I’m green with envy. Enjoy the experience! I could have so easily been at this SB but I’ve been loose as F with my money over the last two years. I’m now inspired to change my spending habits for the better 

Thanks a lot!

We bought a house last year and put a lot of cash down to drop the interest rate, but made it a point to stash cash again and replenish it.  That said, it was close, but our inbound tax return (and not having to fly) made it possible.

Get creative and save up again.  There’s no doubt that this won’t be the Eagles last time to the big dance in the next decade.

@Captain F - I hope you decided to go. I get not trying to spend money on frivolous things, but spending money on experiences you'll never forget is always worth it, provided you have enough extra cash laying around for it. And I'm pretty sure ya do.

I feel utterly lucky that I can drive to the game and skip airfare altogether.  It made a $3650 ticket that much more affordable, and the seat I scored is not a bad angle at all (section 337, quartering angle on the Eagles sideline).

I’m taking my whole family up to the NFL Experience at Mall of America on Saturday.  We’ll grab dinner and do other family stuff before I break off.

On game day, I’ll be at the StubHub Live: Field House event for ticket customers during pre-game...

The plan is to meet up with citysims21 and some guys from the Green Legion.   Once I get my lanyard and drink tickets, do some mingling with the former NFL’ers that will be there (Randall!) and then head to the stadium and see what’s going on in the main event area before grabbing my seat.

Stoked doesn’t begin to describe it.

I will be in 331.

Oh, snap!  Shoot me a PM when you get to your seat.  I’ll be checking my PMs here regularly once I get in there.

There's a crazy woman around here with a hotel room you can crash at.

I might have to ask for her info. I am holding off clicking the BUY buttons on airfare and game ticket because there are no hotels available... I dont want to sleep in the airport.

I just met Vince Papale and Tony Bruno at SB party.

VP is good friends with a high school football coach in Utah that i know well.  he went out to talk to his team before they WON state champs.  He is also a huge Eagles fan largely because of his friendship with Vince.

No sweat!  This play is buzzing.  Mall of America is a zoo, but still worth seeing if you’ve never been.

Timmy Jernigan just walked by me in Mall of America on his way back to the hotel.  He looks healthy and to be in good spirits.

The weather I can deal with. But this is my current issue...

Flights $500 x 2

Hotel $ 900

Tickets $4-5k x 2

Im looking at 10k~    I just dont know if i can justify it.

We try to leave politics in CVON (Conflicting Views and Other News), that way discussions don't stray from important issues like Eagles Football.

Besides, the tax cuts are for next tax season, not this tax season.

I’m observing the exact same thing and praying that most of the green I’m seeing will be in the stadium tomorrow.  It will be a home game on the road like the Rams game was.
