If you don't like your ex-husband, then selling the wedding ring you wore while you were married to him so you can take your new husband to a football game is a brilliant idea, right? I've never been married, so I don't know anything about marriage, but it sounds like great idea to me and that's exactly what one lady in Kansas City is doing this week.

A female Chiefs fan has put her wedding ring on Craigslist and all she wants in return is two tickets to the Chiefs-Broncos game being played in Kansas City on Dec. 1. She's not trading her 14K white gold ring for nosebleed seats either, she wants lower bowl or club level seats, according to the Kansas City Star.

Here's exactly what she wrote in her Craigslist ad:

I have a diamond ring/wedding band set (appraised at $3,100) that I want to trade for KC Chiefs tickets. Looking for tickets to the 12/1 Broncos game. Email me with offers.

The woman is hoping to get tickets to the game for her husband's 40th birthday. Speaking of husbands, the ring she's selling is from a marriage to another man, so the ring "holds no value to me and is a lot easier to part with over tickets than handing that much cash over for the tickets," the woman told the Denver Post.

Would  you give up two Chiefs-Broncos tickets for this $3,100 ring? (Craigslist)

If my college economics professor reads this story, he'll probably throw up in his mouth. Right now on Ticketcity.com, you can get two third row tickets in the lower level for a total of $690. So when it comes down to it, she's basically trading her $3,100 ring for $700. She must really dislike her ex-husband.
