    CY: I forgot about Jackson - two daily round trips on Southwest. It's about 2:20 to 2:30 drive going a safe bit above the speed limit. Light traffic to NOLA + easy egress from the airport (rental cars are in the parking garage across from the terminal). I've used Jackson a few times. Based on your price shopping, I think that I will buy a couple of tickets to Jackson shortly. Thanks!

    As to game tickets, let's see if I can get a handful together from a friend of a friend runs a national ticket brokerage. He told me last year (when planning the rip to Hoosierville) that he could get me below market value tickets.

    The casinos in Biloxi are just 40 minutes further and much nicer than anything in Slidell, which is a kinda a dump.
    Hey NOLA fan: thanks for all the good info. What side of town are you from? I used to live in Kenner, and now frequently visit mostly Harahan & Lafitte.

    Southwest's flights are very limited at this point and not really cheap. I was looking at Expedia (Delta).

    I'd like to be part of the waiting list (2 please) for this particular handful if at all possible.

    Don Scott was pimping these SB packages on Rise N Shine this morning. Their Superior Package is sold out. There's also some bus trips to NE but most of the tics were sold out.

    These SB packages start at $3500 and up, about the same as SB 35.

    My cousin got me a job pushing carts for Aerosmith at the SB 35 half time show and I would have been down on the field
    at half time but got pneumonia a couple of days before and couldn't go. I still have the SB hat he sent me-lol.

    T - on game tickets please also keep us in mind. Flights from England will be expensive enough so any help in this regard would be appreciated!!

    If you'd be so kind to keep Mrs HR and I in mind should you happen to land that block of tickets. We already have our lodging secured.

    As if you don't have enough requests already keep me in mind as well for one ticket as well I'm ready to go. Air fare/hotel arrangments will be challenging for me but I'll find a way to get there.

    I have been thinking about going up to New England on Sunday since it certainly seems like ticket prices keep going down and down. It took me two days to figure this out, but the Patriots' TicketExchange only works for season ticket holders or people on the wait list to buy season tickets. Apparently they are the only team in the league that does it this way. That's pretty annoying for me for this game, but a pretty cool idea. I know my dad lists some of his Ravens tickets on TicketExchange because he doesn't want to go to every game, and it'd certainly be nice to be more assured that your seats are going to fellow fans.

    Mista T, I am in mid-city near the racetrack and the Bayou St John........watch games at the Mid-City Yacht Club. Originally from NY, and moved here in time for Katrina. Having a home game Super Bowl would be ultra-cool. Saints fans hate Atl, and SF, and NE too.......plus Ed Reed and Jones being from here would be like a home game!

    There you go. That's why I'm here, for the good advice
    In Biloxi Beau Rivage has a fantastic buffet. IP has a first class sushi restaurant. Hard Rock has the best pool. Roll up I-10 to New Orleans in 50 minutes. I know a great driver if you want someone to drive you around in case you want to drank.

    Maybe I missed it on this thread but how far is the closet airport to Biloxi, MS?? Or is it better to fly into Jackson, MS. I'm leaning towards that based on current airfares. I'll just rent a car from the airport, drive to New Orleans then drive back to the airport after the game, return the car, spend the night at the airport. Yep no hotel for me

    Gulfport, Ms is the closet airport to Biloxi. Mobile, AL is just an hour from Biloxi, or even Pensacola, FL (two hours) or Tallahassee (four hours) are drivable.

    One could even make a case for Houston.. ~350 miles and a straight shot in on I-10. At highway speeds you're looking at 4:45 or so.

    Pensacola airport is small. I was stationed there for a while. I was really surprised with how small their airport is.

    So from Mobile to New Orleans, it's about 2 1/2 hours maybe?
