Have you bought your dad a gift for Father’s Day this Sunday? No? NOW who’s being emotionally unavailable?

A new survey asked more than 1,000 dads what gifts they want for Father’s Day . . . and what they DON’T want.

The top seven things they want are: A trip . . . tickets to a sporting event . . . power tools . . . an iPad . . . a watch . . . beer . . . and barbecue gear.

And the top four things they really DON’T want are: A gym membership . . . underwear . . . socks . . . and ties.

And they’re REALLY not kidding about the whole “I don’t want a gym membership” thing. 92% of dads say that would be a terrible gift, which makes it three times worse than the runner up, underwear and socks.

Don’t let people tell you the Super Bowl is in San Francisco this year. It’s in Silicon Valley, over an hour south of San Francisco. And since people there just LOVE flashing their money around, it’s how something like THIS happens.

This Super Bowl now has the most expensive tickets of any sporting event in U.S. history. One ticket is now selling for an average of $4,957.

The old record was the Mayweather-Pacquiao boxing match back in May, where tickets got up to $4,672.
