NFL Steps In After 2 Women Who Lost Super Bowl Tickets Appear On CBS 2 (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/01/31/nfl-steps-in-after-2-women-who-lost-super-bowl-tickets-appear-on-cbs-2/)
Nicole Hill and Sarah Agerup, of Seattle, appeared at 5:19 p.m. with CBS 2’s Lonnie Quinn. Hill was carrying a cardboard sign explaining that her wallet had been stolen [out of her suitcase] at San Francisco International Airport en route from Seattle to New York.

The pair did not come to New York together, but Hill had both [Super Bowl] tickets and both were lost.

But, the sign continued, “Still made it to NYC. Go Hawks!!!” Hill said she used a spare passport in her suitcase to get to the city.

“I had a wonderful New Yorker who drove me from the airport to my hotel last night,” Hill said. “You guys are great people.”
It just so happened that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was watching the CBS 2 News Friday evening, and NFL officials contacted the CBS 2 newsroom to offer the women some new tickets...The women were crying tears of joy as a crowd cheered...

As it turns out, there's a bit more to the story...
The call was bittersweet for Agerup, whose father was a trainer for the Seahawks in the early 1990s. Both of her parents were killed by a drunken driver four years ago.

Now, she’ll get watch the team that first brought her mom and dad together on a blind date, in the Super Bowl.

You don't, but you need a form of ID, which a passport is.

Turned out good for these girls.

Would've sucked if they had to watch it in Times Square.
