    A few words of advice.

    Get there early!!

    I have this fear that many people are going to be late to their seats for this game due to game and normal ****ty traffic on 36 Thursday afternoon. If you can, take the afternoon off and get to Boulder early.

    Also, by getting there early, you can get to your seats earlier and have the stadium packed prior to kickoff.

    Spread the word, get there early!!!

    Parking lots open up at 2:30, and I plan on getting there right then. I'm always in favor of showing up early. It sets the tone for the players and lets them know this is a big game.

    It would be great for everyone to get there early to get a large and loud croud to greet the Buffs as they touch the buffalo and walk into the stadium!!!

    We are hoping to leave the Springs around 1:30 or so. Should give us plenty of time. :thumbsup:

    My flight is scheduled to leave DFW at 2PM and set down at DIA at 3PM. I'll get there as fast as I can!

    Skiddy, I'd look at taking E-470/Northwest Parkway into Boulder if I was in your shoes.

    Taking the day off and heading out of the Ranch at about 1:30. Should make it up to lot D between Boulder Creek and the Practice Field at 2:30. Set up tailgate and start cooking. Whole chicken wings, tiger prawns, jalapeno poppers and pineapple rumaki. All home made and made for the grill. Good food, good beer, good friends and a freaking great time.

    Good idea. The Boulder Turnpike and Frontier's on-time percentage has me stressing.

    I just hate it when work gets in the way of a good game.

    It'll be worth the $8-10 in tolls to keep your sanity.

    I'm in worse shape. My flight from Bozeman doesn't get in until around 4:30. I'll be lucky to make it there by kickoff - but I'll be there!!:thumbsup:

    I would also recommend that you take E-470/Northwest Pkwy to 287, and then take South Boulder road in. Just a suggestion :smile:

    That should get him past most of the bad traffic and just leave the stretch of 36.

    'cept that stretch of 36 is gonna suck monster balls. I'd consider ditching NW parkway at 95th St and cutting over to South Boulder Road or even going all the way to Baseline and taking that in.

    ...or if you REALLY wanted to be a badass... skip S. Boulder Rd altogether (cuz you'll then have to take Foothills North from S. Boulder Rd to Colorado) and come in the back way... down Arapahoe! Sorry... just had to get my $0.02 in...

    I usually take 287 to Arapahoe instead dealing with 36 on gameday. Might look into that as the 287 exit is a mile or two before the 36 exit.

    Edit: Beat me to it Phatty.

    I just graduated in May. Took me 4 years. 4 years. Not 4 1/2. Not 5. My advice to you is to grow a pair. Make an excuse. Don't show up. You should just wear Red for the rest of the year because your vagggggggggggggggggggg is so large.

    Quit being a vagina and go. You'll never, ever, ever forgive yourself.

    VAGINA.

    Good point. Everything in that area is going to suck balls tomorrow at rush hour. Football traffic on a Saturday morning can be bad enough, but tack on a regular rush hour and it'll be a mess.
