(I searched for a Super Bowl car, I got this commercial pic it is supposed to be the first Car commercial at the SB. It is for Carvana, what ever that is....) they pay $7 million for 30 seconds...
SPORTS thoughts for today:
Our boys were into Moto Cross before baseball and football:
The only time I have been really interested in sports was when our boys were young. Moto Cross, Little league and Sunday and Monday Football games on TV. They pulled for the Washington Redskins.
While stationed in DC we attended a Skins Preseason game. It was impossible to attend one in regular season. They were sold out. The preseason game tickets were an outrageous price of $12.
Years later Sherry was a team mother for Mark’s football team in Key West. We decided to do something special and have a drawing amongst the team members; we would take the winner with us to see a professional game between the Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills, up in Miami. OJ played for the Bills and was VERY Popular.
In Miami we got a a Motel on the beach. The kids had a ball. At Sears I bought a small portable TV. Let me tell you that little B/W TV was heavy back then.
I received an education. First the kid was from the small black community in Key West and he was a ‘Conch’. Conch being a person born in Key West. The boy had NEVER eaten in a restaurant. (We helped him order).
Second: Having a TV the boys could see reruns, I lugged that sucker into and out of the stadium; held it in the tight ‘cheapseats’ we had. The learning? If a game isn’t sold out it is not broadcast locally! So I bought and lugged a TV for no reason, the game was not televised locally.
We enjoyed the game, The Dolphins won, but OJ did do some fancy running.
Ticket prices, again outrageous, $20 a ticket. Hotdogs and drinks $1.50 each. Ouch!
So are you going to the Super bowl?
Check these prices of snacks last Bowl:
Large Premium Beer: $18
BBQ Platter: $22
Double Cheeseburger: $18
Coke: $11 +
Reuben Sandwich: $18
Will you need a ticket, READY? …………
Ticket price is from $6,800 to $81,800. Parking? If close, $1500.
PS: I have been told but don't remember who is playing.
Not a sports fan, so naturally I think there are at least 70,000 insane (Or Very Wealthy) FANS in this country. ;-)
