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.

I read this in Gene Hackman's voice and I stood up half way through and started cheering. It's going to be a long week waiting for this game.

And Olsen didn't turn DC into a bunch of whining, diving.. oh, nevermind

Planning on being there REALLY early so i have no issues.

 

That said, someone needs to give Harrison police the heads up so they are prepared to handle the influx.

LAZ Parking handles the traffic, AFAIK.

Two weeks ago, if I recall correctly, Jamison was posting in the results watch thread after the NE draw about how RB lost the shield.

Now he's urging everyone to show up early to rally the team to WIN the shield.

Funny how things work out ;)

I bet the south ward will be filled at kickoff but the same traffic problems will persist for everyone else.
