Listen, it's the biggest home game in a decade. It should be sold out. There will be traffic. There will be lines. The PATH train will be busy. The security pat down will exist. It will take a while to get a beer from the concession line.
You, not some mystical force of the universe, but Y-O-U are in control of when you leave, when you get in, and the impact you make in the stands, wherever the hell you sit.
Let not Sunday be yet another day where you- fan of this team- walks into the stadium 30 minutes later than you intended, because of *silly reason x*. Let not Sunday be a day where you dawdle in during the 2nd minute, or the 20th, after one too many pints from the bar, or hung up at five guys ordering that good luck bag o fries.
You have a clock. You have a watch. You have other shit in your life, but that shit will be there on Saturday. And next weekend. And every day for the rest of your life.
What you have Sunday, is a chance. A chance that does not come around very often; It is the first chance we've had to do this at home in a decade. This team may change, your life may change. We could be back here Dec. 7, or never again.
But this is the best chance we've ever had at a trophy, and it is our chance to win our first one, which is something you can only do one time.
This Sunday YOU have chance to get into the stadium, and make a difference for your team winning a trophy.
Take that chance, and make the most of it. Make that game, that day, a priority from beginning to end.
Drive over an hour early. Take the earlier train. Get on the PATH at 2, not 4. Leave El Pastor at 4pm, not 4:45.
Please do whatever you have to do, to get your butt into your seat by 4:30. There will be pre-game stuff, sure. Anthems, sure. Whatever.
But, on this day, use your clock and your voice to pay this team back for 33 games of fighting for your honor.
Let them see a full stadium during warm ups, and know that you are there for THEM on Sunday.
Let them hear the noise in the tunnel, and let them FEEL your desire, to fight and take what is ours.
Get in there early and be a fucking PART of it, from BEGINNING to end, no matter what happens. We owe them that. We owe Mike Petke that.
Don't be late with a really great story about how it wasn't your fault. It is.
Get Stuck In. Not at 5:05, but fucking early.
