What would you give up for a Super Bowl ticket?
Thousands of Seahawks fans are willing to give up a lot of dough to support the team at the Super Bowl, but are there any other precious things you’d trade for tickets?
710 ESPN Seattle’s The Barbershop asked their listeners what they’d give up for Seahawks tickets and the offers ranged from body parts to significant others. One listener said he’d cut off his left pinkie finger for tickets, another said he’d quit is job, while yet another said he’d quit college, even though he’s just one semester from graduating.
Barbershop host Gee Scott asked if anyone would be willing to take a bullet.
“Would you let T-Holla shoot you in the booty for tickets to the game?”
Shockingly, a number of listeners agreed to the challenge.
“I don’t think I would cut anything off to go to the Super Bowl, but I would let T-Holla shoot me in the butt,” said Danny in Tacoma.
Another listener noted, it’s not like he’d be in his seat if he was actually lucky enough to cheer on the Seahawks in Arizona.
“I would take a bullet in the butt, because I won’t be sitting at the game.”
While the guys chuckled about all those willing to take a shot, there were a few things that maybe went too far.
Sam in Seattle laid out a real-life scenario he’s considering.
“I’ve been dating my girlfriend for about five years now and I’ve known she’s the one for a long time, so I’ve been saving up for about two and a half years to buy her a beautiful wedding ring. And I brought it up to her. I said I have all this money saved to the side, I could either buy you a nice wedding ring or we could go to the Super Bowl and do it right.”
While Sam insists his girlfriend is a big fan too, The Barbershop guys warn the impacts of this trade could stick with him a long time.
“I’ll tell you what’s going to happen, man,” says T-Holla. “You’re going to do this move, everything is going to be smooth sailing, you’re going to go to the Super Bowl, you’re going to have fun. Then, 15 years down the road, you’re going to leave your socks in the middle of the floor, she’s going to come in and be like, ‘This punk, you remember you took us to the doggone Super Bowl and gave me this funky little wedding ring I’ve got to wear now.’ She’s never going to forget it.”
But Barbershop co-host and former Seahawk Marcus Trufant counters, saying she might also never forget it in a good way.
“This is the Super Bowl,” Trufant says, explaining Sam and his lady will certainly make memories for a lifetime in Arizona.
But Gee sides with T-Holla, saying, “Don’t do it. Save that money. Save it for your wedding or the ring.”
