For the last 3 years (well, at least 2 of the three), I've gotten deep into SB planning. I feel like Charlie Brown kicking the football, but I'm at it again.

Flying into NOLA looks to already be too expensive for my taste. Southwest flies to Jackson, MS which is 3 hours from NOLA. Cheaper cars there too. Game tickets are currently $2150 and up on the secondary market, but will drop if NE is knocked off. A Baltimore-Atlanta SB would probably be the cheapest scenario.

I have not heard from the Ravens RE: a SB lottery for PSL holders, has anyone else?

For hotels, looks like a lot of good stuff on here already, and I've found pretty cheap lodging in Slidell (35 minutes away) for $110/night.
