Bears Darkside Vol. 3: It’s going to cost more to see my Bears in February

SHARE Bears Darkside Vol. 3: It’s going to cost more to see my Bears in February

It’s a widely accepted fact that the Bears will compete in the Super Bowl Feb. 1, 2009 in Tampa. Unfortunately, it will cost more than $1,000 for me to do so. For the first time in the game’s history, Super Bowl tickets have broken the $1,000 mark, according to the AP.

I already lamented earlier this year about the price of tickets at Soldier Field. And now this? It’s getting to the point where you have to be a bazillionaire to be a true fan anymore. Luckily, that’s the tax bracket in which I roll. But what about Joe the Plumber? What about him, NFL?
