Believe it or not...we actually rank in the TOP 5! Of MOST EXPENSIVE teams to follow! Figures, we get a high ranking in THIS!
Before we get to the news though, heads up! This season, get ready for $5 beers and $2 hot dogs at Ford Field. So you might leave the game angry and mad as you know what, but you won't be hungry or thirsty. And depending on how bad things go...maybe not sober lol. (Business Insider)
