What Would You Do For Tickets?

Chicagoist admits that the game wasn't even over yet when we began searching StubHub and trolling Craigslist, hoping to find Super Bowl tickets that wouldn't require selling a kidney or moving back in with Mom & Dad -- especially since Mom replaced the shrine to MJ, Walter Payton and Frank Thomas with a proper guest room. At $3000+, sadly it looks like Chicagoist will be watching the game in front of the TV, just like the rest of you.

2007_01_sports_sb_tix.jpgSome people, however, have found more novel approached to trying to gain entry to the Super Bowl. One local plastic surgeon is willing to trade services for tickets.

Dr. Omeed Memar said, "I'm willing to offer laser hair removal, I'm willing to offer a year's worth of microdermabrasion, I'm willing to offer what you might need. I am flexible -- it all depends on what seat and where we're talking..." Somehow, we think he might be more likely to get some bites if he'd offer a boob job or liposuction.

But Bears fans aren't really plastic surgery kind of folks, so maybe the Doc's going about this all wrong. Maybe Albert Hasan and Amjed Sughayer have the more attractive offer. As co-owners of Baby's Steak and Lemonade, they're offering up free sandwiches for life! Steak sandwiches, gyros, and burgers until the day you die sounds like something more up the typical Bears fan's alley.

We're sure these are not the only crazy offers for Tickets now that the Bears will be playing in the Super Bowl for the first time in 21 years. Anybody else hear of other crazy offers? Anybody got two tickets in return for web design services?
