What is this guy planning on buying?

Inspired by this interesting article on Puck Daddy about the tons of Winter Classic tickets available on StubHub, I thought it might be interesting to check in every once in a while and try and guess what the hell the seller of the most expensive tickets for the outdoor game might be spending their money on if some dumbass is stupid enough to buy them.

As mentioned in the article above, the most expensive tickets right now are $19,900 but you can only buy them as a pair. So the tickets together will cost you $39,800, not counting the extra $4,000 that StubHub will add on for commission.

What could the seller be planning on buying? Here's some things that you can get for $39,800:
  • 10,602 gallons of gas ($3.75 National Average)... or a new Toyota Prius (starts at $24,270) with enough left over for 4,141 gallons of gas - probably enough to last that car many many years
  • 5 - 60" Class 1080p Flat-Panel Plasma HD TVs (with universal remote!) - they'll need something to watch the game on afterall
  • 4,975 cases of Old Style (in bottles.. cause this guy is classy). That's 59,700 bottles...
  • 44 Puggles
  • Two years of education at a private college
  • Two of whatever Eliot Spitzer got from his prostitutes (or double plus a good tip... again.. classy)
  • Khabibulin's goaltending services for 2.15 days (6.75 Million divided by 365 for his daily rate)
