very expensive...especially if you try the secondary market. andrew marden talked with the folks at stubhub to find out how they're meeting demand. "it's been fantastic to
have the super bowl in our backyard, it certainly makes it easier. traditionally we have people off-site in hotels, sorting tickets. to have a downtown san francisco drop-off point has made it logistically easier for us." we took a trip to the stubhub office to see the operation...only a handful of people inside on this particular day.
that will change...quickly. "this is probably one of two events we do all year long that physically requires everyone to come pick up a ticket. most tickets are electronic, you can use your phone or print it out. not for super bowl. for super bowl you have to physically pick it up in person, which requires a 67-70 person detail. to sort the tickets, match the, with orders, make sure the tickets are legitimate. the good news is... "we have never in our history had a counterfeit ticket for the super bowl." but here's the bad news... "right now to get into the game it starts at just over $3,000. average ticket price is just under $5,000. even if that drops it won't drop below roughly 25- hundred...crazy to think the cost of getting into super bowl one was ten bucks!

fans living around the country, if they are coming to the game." if you

1:07 "super bowl, babeeee!" the only thing that gets football fans fired up more than their favorite teams playing in the super bowl... is the food that goes with it: "chips, beer, yeah..." "deluxe nachos, hot dogs, hamburgers.." the typical super bowl smorgasbord is so immense... so filling... some estimate a person can consume as many as 2-thousand calories on game day. "i'll start my diet the following morning." one of the biggest culprits is the chicken wing. three to five of these little guys can have as many as 300 calories... and no one only eats three to five wings. "chicken wings are basically calorie and fat grenades." clinical dietitian lisa cimperman suggests replacing wings with chicken tenders... also -- swap out sour cream in dips for greek yogurt..... and stick with light beer. "the higher the alcohol content of the beer.. the higher the calorie content of the beer." and the best defense against an entire bowl of chips and dip ending up...
experts say fill it up -- once -- then turn your back on the buffet table... and get back into the game. "super bowl sunday is considered the second largest day for food consumption in the country... but you know, it's just one day. dietitians say it's find to indulge a little, then get back on track monday. reporting from charlotte, north carolina clearly without any bias whatsoever.... i'm erika edwards, nbc news." another tip -- try adding peas to your guacamole. it adds nutrients and protein, and helps the guac s sy a bright green color. still ahead on the news at noon... it promises to be a packed house uconn huskies come to columbia next week.
