The Super Bowl sold out months ago, but many of those tickets are still for sale on the secondary market, and prices are down—the lowest in at least the past four years. On StubHub, on Friday morning, you could get a seat in the upper-corner section 345 of MetLife Stadium for $1,642.57, which, we’ve been assured, is a whopper of a deal, down from between two and three thousand dollars. (For reference, the view would look something like this.)

Did you ever wonder what the view would be like in a certain section at a baseball, basketball, football or other sports game? So you go online and search for pictures and can't seem to find much more than a map of the stadium. Even if you finally find what you're looking for, it typically doesn't tell you what section it's in, which doesn't help you too much in your quest to find the perfect view of your favorite team.

...Husband and wife team Frank Panko and Missy Wedig are Philadelphia Phillies fans who came up with the idea for A View From My Seat while deliberating their season tickets purchase. Both quit their jobs to crowdsource images from stadiums around the country and say they now have 200,000 users per month.

Sun Life Stadium is probably more commonly known as the home of both the Miami Dolphins and also the Orange Bowl.
The Miami Hurricanes call this place home as well. It has been around since 1987 and seats 76,500.
The atmosphere here is average as best, and the stadium is kind of located in a not-so-great residential area.
Still, this is Miami, so the weather is nice and the place can get loud at times.

Last year, Frank Panko found a way for sports fans to aggregate all the photos we take from the bleachers and launched A View from My Seat. At the time, he told Technically Philly he could envision his application being useful for making ticket purchases.
Now, about a year later, with the launch of a View From My Seat Chrome extension for StubHub, Panko’s vision is a reality.
I may not be the biggest sports fan and this app sounds cool even to me! Last year I was buying tickets to Louden, NH's Nascar race for myself and 5 others. The seats were in turn 4. I've always sat close to the start/finish line there in the past so I wasn't sure if these seats would allow me to see the whole front stretch. To me that's a deal breaker. If I can't see the cars pitting, coming off the 4th turn and going into the first, I'd almost rather watch it on TV.

Fans are responding to the app with enthusiasm, adding photos from professional and college football stadiums, baseball parks, soccer stadiums, basketball arenas and other venues.
Thanks to a South Philadelphia man, there’s no need to worry about purchasing a pricey stadium ticket and getting stuck behind a foul pole or glass partition.
At least that’s the vision behind A View From My Seat, a website and Android app that encourages users to upload cell phone shots of, well, the view from their seats in thousands of venues around the world.
