Worse Investment: Bear Stearns Or $400,000 On Jets Season Tickets ?

Posted by Mike on October 29, 2008

I can think of a lot of things I would do with $400,000. I could finally afford the penis surgery I so dearly need and I’d still have money leftover to buy Boston Bruins season tickets and get electroylis. But, count David Findel who would rather spend $400,000 on the rights to the two best seats at the new Meadowlands Stadium, reports the NY Post. That seems like an awfully steep price to watch Brett Favre throw the ball to places that balls aren’t intended to go, and finally see if head coach Eric Mangini gunt finally spills onto the field.  Although, you do get to see women flashing at Jets games. Maybe, if the Jets get bad enough, Mangini will flash the crowd. Those would be some saddle bags. More from NY Post:

But the Colts Neck, NJ, resident says he may never sit in the 50-yard- line seats when the stadium opens in 2010.

“I purchased them for my son, Brandon, 11, and my daughter, Brooke, 7. I will probably continue to sit in my current seats.”

Findel outbid an offensive line’s worth of New York jet setters at the Oct. 16 auction, including Nobu owner Drew Nieporent and Gary Vaynerchuk, owner of winelibrary.com.

The frenzied bidding turned into a silent auction when Findel raised the stakes from $140,000 to a staggering $200,000 for each of the two personal seat licenses.

He will still need to plunk down another $7,000 each annually for the season tickets themselves, which come with a private VIP entrance, parking, a full spread of food and drink at a swanky restaurant and access to the field during the game.
