Broncos Punter Had to Pay $1,800 for a Super Bowl Ticket for His Infant Daughter
This time of year, there’s a lot of talk about Super Bowl tickets. How to get them, how much they cost, and how they come free to players.
Only…they don’t. Players are allotted 15 tickets each, but those 15 tickets cost a cool $1,800 each, making the perk a LOT less enticing. This became public knowledge (again) after Broncos punter Britton Colquitt had to pay that hefty fee to get his ONE WEEK OLD BABY into the game.
Yup, there’s no exemption for youngsters, even if their belly button is still healing and they can totally fit in your purse (which they’ll check, btw).
Speaking to the media, Colquit said, “There’s no age limit to tickets. It’s $1,800 for our week-old daughter we just had. It’s kind of crazy.”
Considering Coquitt’s playing in the game, he wanted to include his daughter, even if she won’t have the foggiest notion of what’s going on. For $1,800, I would probably just lie to them when they’re older and tell them that they were there and they loved it.
