How much are Super Bowl tickets 2021? Here are the cheapest & most expensive seats for Tampa

  • NFL American Football

    It's not easy to get a ticket to the Super Bowl, and Super Bowl 55 on Feb. 7, 2021 is no exception.

    First off, the tickets are remarkably expensive, reaching into the thousands of dollars. And second, many of the NFL's partners get tickets through their various deals, so it's not as simple as just pulling up a team website and buying a ticket or two.

    But if you're buying tickets to Super Bowl 55, you're in a bit of luck: They aren't quite as pricy as they've been in the past, for a number of reasons examined by Yahoo's Charles Robinson. The COVID-19 pandemic reduced the added festivities of Super Bowl week, the Chiefs just played in the big game last year and there's rain in the forecast. The variety of factors appears to have overridden the fact that there's reduced attendance.

    Raymond James Stadium will host this season's Super Bowl, and it can seat 65,000 regularly or be expanded to seat 75,000. The NFL has announced that 14,500 ticket-buying fans will be in attendance, along with 7夜网论坛,500 vaccinated health care workers that the league is letting in for free.

    Below, we've got all the info you need to know about attending Super Bowl 55 in Tampa between the Chiefs and Buccaneers.

    Tua Tagovailoa raves about Ryan Fitzpatrick, roots for Jalen Hurts, revs up for Dolphins draft

  • NFL Dolphins American Football

    Tua Tagovailoa, after being drafted No. 5 overall in 2020, had to wait his turn to start at quarterback for the Dolphins. But he thinks he was meant to sit behind Ryan Fitzpatrick for seven games — and will be a much-impoved second-year QB because of it.

    “I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason," Tagovailoa told Sporting News. "Everything played out the way it’s supposed to play out. I got to learn a lot from Fitzpatrick — he’s a great guy. At the same time, I also got the opportunity to get in the game, get some playing time"

    With Fitzpatrick heading into free agency, it's unlikely that Miami brings back the well-traveled veteran to either back up or toggie with Tagovailoa. Even though it was only one season, Tagovailoa expects to keep benefiting from the strong relationship.

    “It was big — very big — to have Ryan. A lot of the guys who have been very successful in the NFL, they’ve been mentored by guys before them. Ryan’s been in the league for 16 years. He knows the ins, the outs, the personnel, in terms of guys we’re playing against. He helped out in trying to simplify things. He was a great asset in helping me become a better football player.”

  • NBA

    Duke forward Jabari Parker — projected as the No. 1 pick by Sporting News — will be a surefire lottery pick if he chooses to enter the NBA draft. But that may not be enough for Parker, who is considering a second collegiate season, according to Chad Ford of (via Real GM).

    Parker is expected to be part of a much-hyped draft class, along with Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle, Dante Exum, Aaron Gordon and Joel Embiid. Of those players, Parker and Embiid are reportedly still on the fence. Randle has yet to declare because his season is still in progress.

    Magic Johnson praises LeBron James for taking a stand

  • NBA

    The conversation of athletes getting involved in social issues continues. Some people claim that professional athletes should just play the game and stick to their job description, while others say athletes have a platform and they should use it.

    Magic Johnson has always been one to speak out on social issues, and he says it's the responsibility of other players, former and active, to do the same.

    "They have to get involved socially," Johnson told ESPN. "They have to because it affects them, too. And it affects their families. They grew up in these situations; they must not forget that. They (were) once poor, they went to inner-city schools that didn't have technology or computers, they didn't have good books. 

    Johnson had high praises for one star in particular.

    "LeBron is a great example of doing a wonderful job," Johnson said. "When this first came out, when you think about everything that he stood up for — the Donald Sterling thing, when that mess happened, just now with these young people being shot down unarmed, he's been right out front, so I've got to give him a lot of credit. If he's out front being the best player, then the other guys usually follow the best guy."

    James was recently asked about the d夜网论坛eaths of Mike Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamar Rice and didn't shy away from being honest.

    Manu Ginobili T's up ref for hitting him in the face

  • NBA

    You can't disrespect Manu Ginobili — even accidentally — and think you're going to get away with it.

    As the Spurs veteran stepped to the free throw line during a game on Sunday against the Timberwolves, he took a moment to collect himself before receiving the ball. Only, the referee didn't see Ginobili wave him off and passed the rock anyway. After the ball bounced up and hit him in the face, Ginobili promptly hit the ref with a technical foul. A taste of his own medici夜网论坛ne, perhaps?

    Lebron James not upset at Kevin Love over MVP pick

    They might not be best friends, but LeBron James says there are no hard feelings between him and Kevin Love when it comes to their opinions on the NBA MVP race.

    "I don't really think too much of it, really," James said Tuesday, per "I don't really get involved in that. I think the voters are going to decide who is the MVP."

    On Monday's edition of The Dan Patrick Show, Love opted to pick his college teammate over his current Cavaliers teammate.

    "They're both having MVP-type seasons, but I'm going to go with Russell Westbrook," Love said. "Because every single night, you're looking at his stat sheet, they're fighting for a playoff spot even with Serge Ibaka going down now (and) Kevin Durant potentially being out the rest of the year. He is still going out there and really fighting for his team and  winning and fighting for that seventh and eighth spot in the playoffs. I think Russ is arguably having the better season."

    Those remarks come days after James posted a picture of he and several of his teammates — but not Love — on his Instagram account.

    Why your NBA team would fail DeMarcus Cousins, too

  • NBA

    DeMarcus Cousins totally would make your team a title contender. Totally.

    Your team really needs Cousins and has all the right assets! You can package those two mid-first round picks and that one onerous contract for the best offensive center in the NBA! Just throw in that one pick the Nets or Knicks or Lakers owe you! Just kick in that 2014 top-10 pick who you were a little disappointed with last season!

    The Kings center has hit the trade-rumors world with renewed force this offseason amid reports that coach George Karl doesn't want him. Great. The Kings have a disheveled mess of a franchise, and now they want to get rid of the one guy who has been good the past few years. Cousins averaged 24.1 points, 12.7 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.5 steals a game last year — and he was angry with management for most of it.

    Imagine, then, what he would do on your team. Everything would be great for everyone involved! 

    No. Your team probably would fail Cousins, too. CBS Sports found a reasonable trade offer for Cousins for all 29 other teams, and that's cool and all to bring him on. But Cousins is a challenging superstar, and we have seem the Kings fail to build around him and maximize his potential in so many different ways They've had five head coaches, major roster turnover, failed free agency moves, a change in ownershi[......]
