EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – The Super Bowl countdown is on, and the football frenzy has officially kicked off with Media day.

It’s a chance for fans to hear from the top two teams in this year’s big game, the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos.

The NFL estimates Super Bowl 48 having a $550 million economic impact for surrounding areas of New York and New Jersey. But weather might put a damper on that; hotel bookings are reportedly not meeting expectations and those sky-high ticket prices are dropping — now looking like a bargain.

The average price paid for a Super Bowl ticket on the inflated secondary resale market has plummeted 40% in just a week!

Now you can get your hands on a ticket for around $2,056. That’s cheaper than most of the Super Bowl tickets in years past.

Um yeah, who wants to pay a whole lot of money to sit through a whole lot of cold weather?!

Heck, we can barely stomach a couple days of cold temps in Houston.

So, will the Super Bowl be a super bust? Let’s hope not, we’re sure most of you will agree. Watching this game from the comfort of your home, doesn’t sound too bad after all!
