Hey! Go to the post office today!
The NFL's random drawing for Super bowl tickets ends June 1st. This drawing is for an opportunity to buy $600 tickets to the Superbowl, which are actually worth about $3,000 each. It is an incredible windfall to the winners of the drawing, even if you don't want to fly to Indianapolis to see the game.
Your request for admittance into the drawing should include your full name, address, city, state, zip, phone, and e-mail. They should be sent to:
Super Bowl Random Drawing
Mark H. wrote when he got picked. Here is his story, as told in our email conversation:
I was looking over your site once upon a time and there was a recommendation on one of your prank articles to enter the super bowl random drawing every year.... I've placed that on my annual calendar and have entered for the last few years.
I did get my name drawn this year, and have already resold my tickets locally, making a couple of thousand in the process. I wanted to say "THANKS!".
I am so happy to hear you benefited from the Super Bowl Lottery!! YES! I myself have only had the foresight to enter the contest twice, no winner yet, but what a windfall, right?!
I know when your name isn't picked, you get a postcard. What happens when you are picked? I'm dying to know.
I received a glossy 8 1/2 x 11 folder with a photo of cowboys stadium, a cover letter, a ticket transfer form, and one more document (can't remember for sure what it was). It just showed up in the mail one afternoon...
The tickets are $600 each, $1,200 for the pair. I sold them locally for $3,200 which beats what you'll find on stubhub for tickets.
I'm not really a football fan... I just have entered out of curiosity more than anything. I did briefly consider going just so I can say "I've been there", but the opportunity cost to sell them was just too high.
Thanks again, Mark
Enter and win! They have this drawing every year, but I never hear anyone talking about it until long after the June 1st deadline. I'll bet that the people who know about it keep hush to increase their chances of winning.
Let me know how it goes!
