Here’s how to spend $70,000 on a pair of Eagles Super Bowl tickets

It happened. The Philadelphia Eagles won the NFC Championship. So that means that in two Sundays I’ll be meeting my friends at a local bar to watch the Eagles mince the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. But what if I actually wanted to go to the Super Bowl? Well, I’d have to start getting Super Bowl tickets, right?

Sure, I could hunt around on various third-party ticket sites and hope I don’t get scammed. Or I could turn to On Location, the luxury live experiences company the Eagles have partnered with for Eagles Super Bowl tickets.

Had I won the Mega Millions, I would pick the best Eagles ticket package On Location has to offer: a pair of seats in the second row of section 108, complete with a tailgating party, an open bar and live entertainment. How much? Well, the two Super Bowl tickets total $59,502. But then you have to remember all those annoying “fees”.

What the “service fee” listed in the shopping cart stands for is not entirely clear. What is clear, however, is that it is about $10,710.36. That’s a grand total of $70,212.36 for two Eagles Super Bowl tickets with lots of fun and hospitality.

That doesn’t count your hotel, meals, travel to and from Super Bowl Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, IV therapy for your hangover the next day, etc. etc. etc.

Don’t worry, cheaper Eagles Super Bowl tickets are available at On Location. They start at $9,945 for a couple plus $1,790.10 in fees, with limited hospitality.

Very jealous?

The Empire State Building honored the Eagles by turning green Sunday night. And many New Yorkers aren’t too happy about it.

Bucks County’s disgrace goes national

Bucks County’s disgusting disappointment caught NPR’s attention. Saturday is weekend edition examined how the Central Bucks School District stigmatizes LGBTQ students and how the US Department of Education investigates. Listen.

We love lists, especially when they say nice things about Philly

A new report reveals that Philadelphia is one of the nation’s most walkable cities. But a little less walkable than Pittsburgh, which makes us say hmmmmm. But hey, it’s the Eagles in the Super Bowl. Not the Steelers.

Because a basilica just isn’t enough

You probably know the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, the only basilica in Philadelphia. Well, until recently. The Vatican has just deemed a site in Germantown worthy of basilica status.

From an announcement by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia:

The Sanctuary of the Miraculous Medal, a place of Marian devotion and ministry of the Eastern Province Vincentians in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, has been elevated to minor basilica status by the Vatican. This designation is shared only by one other church in the city of Philadelphia, the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, and 91 others across the United States. The shrine, along with the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception that houses it, is now known as the Basilica Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

The new designation was preceded by a multi-year application process that culminated in a decree by Pope Francis. The Shrine is now being promoted as a model site of liturgical and pastoral activity within the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Minor basilicas are highlighted among other churches and shrines, receive specific honors, and are entrusted with special responsibilities.

If you want to see for yourself, the Miraculous Medal Shrine is located at 500 East Chelten Avenue. It is wonderful.

Here comes the cold again

Enjoy the 54 degree weather on Monday while you can. It will soon feel like winter again. 11 degrees on Saturday?! No thank you. The full forecast can be found here.

My recommendation of the week: Yuja Wang

Classical pianist superstar Yuja Wang (a Curtis graduate!) performs a series of Rachmaninoff-centric shows with the Philadelphia Orchestra. The first two happened last week. Then she and the orchestra brought down the house at Carnegie Hall (read the New York Times review here). But you still have a chance.

Wang and the orchestra return to the Kimmel Center for two shows this weekend. And you can’t miss them. Also, there’s no soccer going on, so… get your tickets.

And from the Glorious-Victorious Sports Desk…

What are you saying Philly? I said WHAT DOES THAT SAY?!?!?


We love these guys!

You saw the rest for yourself. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

And we’re going to play Andy Reid’s Chiefs. You have to love couture.

I’ve been talking to grandkids throughout the game, but I’ve seen enough to know what really matters, which is that we won! Moving on to the Sixers, who hosted the Nuggets at 3 p.m. on Saturday. Joel the Troll had just been slapped for a little celebration:

Maybe that’s why our boys got off to a slow, sloppy start.

Georges Niang took offense in the second quarter when Shake Milton was out of place after a steal and the two had to be separated on the bench. Great, great.

Denver went on a 19-8 run to finish the half. Pooh.

But the third started better!

Oh so chic!

And they did!

The Magic come to town at 7 tonight to take on the Sixers.

In college hoops, Temple (14-9) traveled to UCF (13-8) Saturday lunchtime and went into overtime again before clinching a big win.

Temple has a rematch against Houston (19-2), a team that was ranked number one when the Owls beat them at home on Jan. 22, next Sunday.

Harvard (12-9) got to Penn (11-11) and lost big, but the result was a meaty scandal!

La Salle (8-13) held it close in Rhode Island (8-13) but…

And Drexel (12-10) played against Elon (3-19) and didn’t. Uff.

On Sunday, Villanova (10-11) took on Providence (17-5) in 23rd place at the Wells Fargo Center. Parking was reportedly a nightmare. The Wildcats, which saw Justin Moore returning from his torn Achilles tendon, led much of the game.

But couldn’t quite finish it.

St. Joe’s (10-11) also played at George Mason (12-10) on Sunday and pulled out a game that went to the end.

The Flyers also played.
