    was a ****ing disaster. We've been tailgating on Franklin as long as I can remember, and it has always taken no more than 3 or 4 minutes waiting in line to get in the stadium at any of the gates on the east side. Always leave the tailgate about 15 minutes before kickoff and have never missed Ralphie run... until yesterday. We were in line for 20 minutes, and even missed kickoff. They were patting down EVERYONE, and it was a pat down that wouldn't even accomplish anything. (I always hide my weapons in my armpits, which seemed to be the only place they patted.) This made me very angry, did anyone else have issues?

    Entered the same way. They had two people patting down everyone. It was really allsome that they had my 8 year old daughter raise her hands and give her the once over. I can only hope this was a 9/11 thing and not going to be the norm.

    I entered (with FChairbanks) on the NE corner, by the satellite dishes... no line. Also, only a cursory search of my backpack, which in hindsight could have been loaded with many many beers. My new favorite entrance.

    No need to search the NE corner folks. All terrorists are on Franklin field.

    it's lousy with 'em

    We looked at the long lines and walked right in no hassles at the Club / Suites entrance next to Franklin field. We had tix in the flatirons club and that may have been why they let us in there. You have to get to flatirons from the fieldhouse on the west side tho.

    I noticed something from the Gold Lot on Saturday that I've never seen before, but it was hilarious. I think every car in that lot went to the carwash on Saturday morning. Looked like a damn car showroom there. Every car sparkling clean...:lol:

    Maybe, but probably not. I have my own tailgate setup.
