Super Bowl tickets are very expensive. Right now on StubHub, the cheapest nosebleed seat for Super Bowl 50 would cost you $2,780. Want to bring a date or a friend? That's another $2,780. Ticketmaster's Ticket Exchange will get you into the building at a price no lower than $3,100.

Every year you see news reports of some fans who spend their entire savings to see their team in the Super Bowl. How much would you be willing to pay if the Jets were in the big game?

A lot of this depends on your personal situation. If you are a millionaire, that might seem like a drop in the bucket. I think for most people, though, this much money for a football game would be a major sacrifice. Remember, you also probably are going to have to pay for airfare and a hotel.

It also depends on whether you like going to games in person. It definitely can be cool, but in many ways football is a sport made for TV with the camera angles and replays. There also are the commercials in the Super Bowl.

Even if the Jets made the Super Bowl, I think $2,780 is too high of a price for me to justify. How about you?
