Guess I will sit and watch at home. LOL>
I knew the hotel situation would be bad if I waited because I got burned in 08. I had my laptop on my lap as I watched the Jets/Pats game. I had my name and credit card info in on Priceline and bid $75 for a 3.5 star downtown hotel. As soon as the Jets recovered the onside kick I submitted the request and in a few seconds I got the Wyndham Grand right next to the point. Just have to walk right over the bridge to Heinz. It used to be the Hilton. It gets iffy reviews as they are renovating but the location is perfect.

Check Hotwire right now. I believe there was a 3.5 star hotel for arount $100 last night. It is probably the hotel I got.

If you find anything under $200 I would jump on it.

Prices could come down or it could get really ugly. I came up in 2001 vs. the Patriots looking to scalp. I had $500 bucks in my pocket and was willing to spend $400. 4 hours before the game we found some for $350 and the people I was with wanted to wait till closer to kickoff to see if prices would dip. They went the other way and by kickoff there wasn't any tickets. The game had already kicked off and there was a mob of about 50 people trying to cut a deal with some guy on the street who wanted $650/ ticket for single tickets not together.
