I never thought the day would arrive that i would turn to HFboards for help and leadership.
My buddy and i are travelling to New York for a week from the 27th October till whatever date is the following week. Given i am in a state of post-graduate lounge bumming, dates are somewhat alien to me.
Unfortunately due to the NHL situation, i'm having to search for alternative US sports to watch. Given i'd rather walk on a Zebra crossing, lie down and take the hit than watch baseball, and i like the NFL to a degree, it seems the best available option.
I believe the only option during my visit is the Jets/Dolphin game on Sunday 28th, i was inquiring into A) The best site or avenue for purchasing tickets (and relatively cheap tickets, all i wish to do is drink beer and be obnoxious ) B) How far the stadium is from relative central NY. Wiki says the stadium is East Rutherford. I know NJ is close, but not sure how close. How easy/fast is it to get there.
Any help would be much appreciated. I've sent an angry email to Bettman, asking how he can ruin a little boys dream.
Hopefully i have not stumbled into the Giants fan base (although the stadium is the same i guess)!
For tickets, use StubHub. Jets tickets are usually cheap but since it's an AFC East game, they're a little high right now. If you wait until closer to the game the prices may drop. From NYC you could either take NJ Transit from Penn Station to the stadium or you could drive. If you drive, make sure you buy a parking pass in advance otherwise you can't park in the lots. You could find a pass on StubHub also or the Jets TicketExchange. Trip from the city shouldn't be more than 30 minutes depending on traffic.
