left york, pa at 10 went down 83 to the end at lombard st. big traffic jam so we popped into the parking lot by the power plant and walked up to the stadium. first time my son and I were on the playing field which was neat then noticed the lower bowl was filled so went to the upper deck near the top. the place was rocking watched the parade on the big screen. Noticed people coming up the steps with babies and strollers that was kinda nutty. You could feel the stadium moving under your feet awsome time everyone was friendly, the concession lines were horrible they didn't really have time to prepare for a crowd that large.
Came in from Westminster left at 8:30, outer loop to I-70. Jumped over to Rt.40. Smooth sailing almost all the way in. Did some street jogging and ended up parking at the redwood garage. Made it from Westminster to in my seat at the stadium in 90 minutes. I heard of all the nightmare traffic on the radio, but we had smooth sailing all the way in and parking was a breeze.
The crowd and the party at the stadium was the most unbelievable event I have ever participated in. The pictures and video's I have seen don't do it justice. It did seem like there was no security in the stadium, but people were having too much fun to get in any trouble. Alcohol really was not a big issue, since you couldn't get to any concessions, the lines were 30-45 minutes long it seemed.
