No Tickets to the Game of the Year? No Problem!

Posted on: January 19th, 2015 by Taryn Jeffries 5 Comments

I have it on good authority that there are some crazy rules attached to what that football game that is coming up on February 1st can be called if you don’t work for the NFL. In order to not get in trouble with the FCC, we shall go forward calling it “The Game of the Year.”University of Phoenix Staduim

Tickets to the game, if you are fortunate enough to know someone that knows someone, are crazy expensive. So why not keep that money in your kids’ college fund and check out any one of these great alternatives where you can watch that Game of the Year as well as have a comfy seat, great food and not be surrounded by thousands of people?!
