Football champs raise tickets prices again

Fans looking to root on the Giants as they defend their Super Bowl win next season will have to be willing to shell out more money to actually go to a game.

The Giants announced earlier this week a boost in ticket prices for the 2008-2009 season. Depending on your seats, tickets will be at least $10 to $15 more per ticket. This is the sixth straight season the team has raised ticket prices.

Some residents say those prices are too steep for a sporting event. Barbara Capozzoli says she'll only attend a game if she's given a ticket.

"The other place I'll be is in my living room watching the game," she says.

Many fans are anticipating even higher costs as the team prepares for a new stadium in 2010.
