If you’ve got five grand burning a hole in your pocket you can get in the doors at the College Football National Championship Game between Alabama and Georgia.
If you don’t have anything going on Monday night and are looking for a fun activity and live in the Atlanta area, you should totally go to the National Championship Game.
You may be able to get a glimpse of Donald Trump who will be in attendance for the game and you can get yourself a spicy chicken sandwich, waffle fries and a lemonade because the Chick-fil-A inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium will actually be open on a game day, unlike on Sunday when the Atlanta Falcons play.
Of course, tickets are tough to come by on such short notice. And of course if you’re still trying to get your hands on tickets less than two hours before the game, well, be prepared to open the wallet because it’s going to cost you more than a few pretty pennies.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the get-in price for the title game between Alabama and Georgia continues to skyrocket with the cheapest price on StubHub at the time of publishing at $4,700. Holy smokes!
I don’t have $4,700 just lying around the house. But if I did, you’d never see me spending that to get in the building to watch a football game. I am very happy for those of you with that kind of disposable income, and hope you enjoy the experience.
As for me, I’d use $12 to get my own Chick-fil-A and another $8 to spend on a 2-liter of Diet Dr. Pepper and some pretzels to snack on and park my rear on the couch and watch the game from the comfort of my home. It’s only $20 get-in price and that’s the type of experience I can afford.
I really hope the people spending this much money have fun, but at the same time, I would love to see the look on their faces after dropping $5K and have their team lose. Imagine dropping that much change only to have your team out of the game by halftime. What do you do then? May as well start spending some money on Chick-fil-A or your beverage of choice and eat/drink your feelings.
