THE QUESTION

What's the Hottest Ticket Super Bowl/Inauguration?

On Inauguration Day we are revisiting our panel discussion from November 20th:

With scalpers getting thousands from political junkies has the presidential inauguration surpassed the Super Bowl as the hottest ticket?

For anyone who seriously thinks watching a game is more important than our next president I have 3 words: GET A LIFE!

I Find Football Boring :

Not even a tough decision; be bored by the Super Bowl or watch history be made. If you tell me I have to take one or the other, give me the Inauguration ticket.

Actually, I'm going to avoid both. I have no plans to pay any attention to the Super Bowl and I'm headed to New Orleans for Inauguration weekend. I've been to Inaugurations, been to the balls and the festivities around them and I'm going to leave the crowds and the lines and the congestion to folks who haven't done one before.

blueluce :

Difficult to top last year...take a Superbowl year off and enjoy the election/inaugural this year. Last year Superbowl was not boring, this year Election/Inaugural will not be boring....Last inaugural was really boring...

Vj :

Anytime Obama beats Super Bowl and all other events...

Andrea :

So this is a serious question???

Dem now Ind :

Obama's is most important. One is just a football game. The other one is "The One."

GO TEAM MEDIA!

PANELMAN :

The "Super Bowl" takes precidence over the other event. Especially if the Skins are playing. I'm sure TV news and printed news will beat the inaguration to death for many months to come. I for one have had enough politics to last me until 2012.

Phil :

If the Jets are in it then the Superbowl is more important. After all we've got Obama for the next four years at least. The Jets have Brett Favre!

Alex35332 :

I am as big a political junkie as the next guy, and have been to every inaugural since '92 but I am skipping this one, the once with bush were fun because they really thought that we the citizens were gonna riot and try and get em'. I am already sick of the people making Obama out to be Jesus 2, the guys just a man, he will probably do okay as president, but you never know.

Super Bowl is always more fun to watch unless Dallas is there.

Arnot :

Who cares about the inauguration, Obama won. I'll be going to the Super Bowl. They have better fireworks.

Monk :

Are you kidding? Obama, by a mile.

I want to go to the Super Bowl. Am I crazy, maybe but for me the crap that happened today was a dance. Obama made us feel so so so good. Well thanks. Here comes the reality
