    It's ONLY too cold or expensive if you want it to be.

    Yep, ALL IN, including kids. There are plenty of $130s hotels around in NJ, you don't have to stay in manhattan. Lets do it!

    I am ALLIN! Game tickets bought tonight! Excited for the trip. I figured as a young guy I should do these type of things while I can.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Not true. It could be too expensive because I don't make much money.

    Not complaining about the game here. Any game was too expensive for me. I am a terrible, horrible fan.

    I will heat my house by burning my tickets.

    It actually can be too expense. When the price of travel, meals, tickets and lodging exceeds the amount of discretionary income you have it is, by definition, too expensive.

    That's affordable luxury. The big, easy to read Fisher Price style buttons are nice too.

    NY is already expensive plus it's around news years so prices will be even more jacked up.

    You can decide which hotels to stay in, what resteraunts to eat in, etc. You don't have to stay in Manhattan, eat at upscale restraunts and go clubbing/drinking each night. Hence "discretionary" spending.

    Yes it will be expensive to get there by plane or car, but not significantly more than Dallas/Houston/San Diego. There are cheaper hotels that, with a little public transportation (doesn't have to be a cab, think about subway/bus/train - much cheaper), can get you to the game and any other landmarks you want to see. They have Burger Kings and Subways out there, and I'm sure 10,000 other little unique places to eat that are affordable and serve excellent food.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    32 and I aren't saying that NYC itself is too expensive. Some just don't have much discretionary income, so anything is too expensive right now. That's a fair response to the OP's general calling out of Cyclone fans.
