Tickets for Super Bowl XLV

Next year, the Super Bowl will be played on February 6, 2011 in the Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington, Texas. I've never been to a Super Bowl, and now that I'm retired, it makes my list of something I'd like to do once. According to, "The only method the NFL has to distribute tickets to the public is through a random drawing." Here are the details from the website:
How can I buy Super Bowl tickets?
The only method the NFL has to distribute tickets to the public is through a random drawing. There is no other way for the general public to purchase tickets. The NFL does not sell tickets to travel or ticket agents.

Entries for the random drawing are accepted between Feb. 1 and June 1 of the year preceding the game in question. All ticket requests must be sent via certified or registered mail. Those selected in the random drawing will have the opportunity to purchase two tickets.

Requests for Super Bowl XLV, to be played Feb. 6, 2011 in Arlington, Texas, will be accepted beginning Feb. 1, 2010. They should be sent to:

Super Bowl Random Drawing
P.O. Box 49140
Strongsville, OH 44149-0140

Please note that only one request per address is accepted. All duplicate requests will be disregarded.
I know the chances of winning are small. However, it will only cost me the time for writing a letter requesting tickets and $3.24 to send the letter certified. Wouldn't it be great, if I won a pair of tickets? ;-)
