Many people told CBS4’s Rahel Solomon the trip to New Jersey is a no-brainer. Once their Broncos won they knew they’d have to go to support the team. One woman even said that on her way home from last week’s championship game she began looking up hotel reservations.

One man said he purchased a couple tickets and then when he got home realized he won the lottery as well and had some more. So in total he has eight. He said he’s bringing his three brothers and they’re all bringing their wives.

Another man said he’s sharing this experience with his 25-year-old son.

“Absolutely excitement; I went to the Super Bowl with my best friend in San Diego back when they played Green Bay and we had a magnificent time,” season ticket holder Mike Hunt said. “So if I get a chance to share this with my son again, then maybe once in a lifetime, if it’s another 14 or 15 years before we get to go, I may not be here.”

Some scalpers were at Sports Authority Field trying to purchase the golden tickets. They said nobody is selling. So it looks like there will be a lot of orange in the stands at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
