    Re: Do YOU want tickets to Super Bowl XLIII?

    Yes, you can send them in right now.
    They will accept entries until June 1st.

    Here is what I put in my letter:

    To Whom It May Concern,


    Please enter me in the annual random drawing for two (2) tickets to Super Bowl XLIII to be played in Tampa Bay, FL on February 1st, 2009.
    My contact information is below.
    Add your name, address, email, and phone number and that's it.
    It needs to be sent via registered or certified mail, and the NFL does NOT send any confirmation of receipt.

    LOL.
    Man you guys are smart asses.

    MV, both registered mail and certified mail are services offered through the post office that go above and beyond normal first class.
    Certified mail provides proof of mailing as well as proof of receipt, and it cost a few dollars more that regular first class.
    Registered mail requires that the mail be signed for at every single stop, starting with the first post office that you drop it off at and ending when the receiver signs for it. Every single post office and sub office along the way has to sign it in on a ledger, so the mail can be tracked to anywhere in the US (or actually world - if it is going to a participating country).
    Registered mail costs considerably more.

    Re: Do YOU want tickets to Super Bowl XLIII?

    *bump*

    Just want to make sure that my purple brothers (and sisters) are taking advantage of this.
    The time to send in for Super Bowl XLIII is NOW!

    For those who don’t know, Mrs NP and I got to go to the Super Bowl because I won the NFL’s annual random drawing for Super Bowl tickets.
    The NFL makes a small percentage (about 1%) of the tickets available for purchase by the general public through an annual random drawing.
    If you win, you can purchase a pair of tickets directly from the NFL at face value.
    The seating is determined randomly, and the wifey and I ended up in the NFC end zone, lower level.
    There are pics in another thread.

    I am definitely going to enter again.
    If anyone else is interested, this is all you have to do:
    • Send a request to be entered in the drawing to:







    Super Bowl Random Drawing







    P.O. Box 49140







    Strongsville, OH
    44149-0140
    • Make sure you specify that you are requesting to be entered in the drawing for two (2) tickets to Super Bowl XLIII, to be held in Tampa Bay, FL on February 1st, 2009.
    • Send your ticket Request through certified or registered mail.
    I would put some type of confirmation receipt on it as well.
    The NFL does NOT send any correspondence to let you know that they received your entry.
    • Entries are accepted between Feb 1 and June 1.
    • Only one request per household is accepted. Duplicates are disregarded.

    Good luck!
    Of course, the Vikings are going to be playing in Super Bowl XLIII, so I will be going no matter what…

    The widow of my brother-in-law's brother Matt (Matt died a couple years back) told me this past weekend that if the Vikings make the Super Bowl, she'll buy me a ticket.

    SWEET!

    Re: Do YOU want tickets to Super Bowl XLIII?

    So I got another postcard from the NFL regarding the Super Bowl Ticket drawing... unfortunately this time it was the all too familiar "Thanks for entering but you didn't win" note.

    Oh well, I will be entering again next year.
    If the Vikings make the Super Bowl this year I guess I just have to get my ticket the old fashioned way - by spending an ass load of money.

    Anybody else enter?
    If so, have you received your post card yet?
