How far are fans of the Philadelphia Eagles willing to go to get tickets for the Birds' Super Bowl match up with New England next Sunday in Minneapolis? How about trading a kidney for tickets?
Helen Ubiñas from Philly.com took a look at some of the memorable lengths Eagles fans on social media are willing to go to score a pair of tickets.
Are these fans sincere in their offers? You tell me.
- Justin from Glenolden is trying to raise $15,000 on his GoFundMe page titled "Send a loser to the Super Bowl". Maybe Justin really is a loser. As of my reading,he had raised $0 for his cause. Sorry, Justin!
- A young couple offering naming rights to their first-born child to anyone willing to part with a precious pair of tickets.Years from now their lovely daughter will be able to tell that endearing story when friends ask why she's named Barney.
- The most sincere, and, certainly the saddest, ticket appeal comes from Andrew's GoFundMe page, where the 24-year-old explains that he wants to take his brother's ashes to the Super Bowl.
My older brother Scott passed away New Year’s Eve. Scott & I were best friends, we shared so many things in common, from music, movies, to sports, he was my role model. Our biggest passion however was the Philadelphia Eagles! As the Philadelphia Eagles are on the brink of the Super Bowl. I would love to get his ashes to the game so he could see his Eagles play in their most important game of the season. I know the team could use a 12th on the field!
