Who in their proper mind would pay a minimum ticket price of US $111.75 to sit on a bench style seat in -12 degrees f. to watch the Home Team get whuuped up on by the 9'rs??? Oh thats right - Cheese Heads (probably swiss:)) Good Luck to both teams - should be a fun game to watch (ON T.V.)

There was NO WAY the NFL was going to blackout this game. There could be 10 fans there and it still would be televised. The NFL is hanging on by a shoestring. BTW, this shows what an excellent idea holding a super bowl up here would be! Hey family, lets go to this place called Mpls and blow thousands where it is deadly cold out. Sound fun? They have lots of skyways there too. I want a guaranteed revenue amount in the tens of millions of dollars (paid to the city's coffers) on any so-called "big event" held at our upcoming Peoples' Stadium. A break-even event explained away as a great advertising for tourism method is no longer funny.
