Super Bowl XLVIII

NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — It might be because of the cold weather but the big game may not be such a hot ticket.

On Tuesday afternoon, there were still 18,000 tickets available for the Super Bowl, CBS 2′s Emily Smith reported.

The NFL’s biggest game of the season draws fans from around the world to its host city, but this year the game is in New Jersey, the forecast is frigid, and thousands of tickets are still available.

Tri-State area residents said that without the Jets or Giants playing on Sunday, the big game isn’t a big deal. Especially in New York where residents are used to hosting big shows and seeing celebrities walking around.

“It’s just aggravation. Going there, getting there. I’d rather sit in my living room,” one New Yorker said.

Ticket prices have fallen to $1,500 and haven’t stabilized so they could fall even lower. But it still may not be enough to get some local residents to Metlife stadium.

“If the Jets aren’t playing in the Super Bowl, which will be thirty years from now, I’m not in,” another man said.

One woman in Midtown did say that she wanted to go. She was from Brazil.
