Getting out that early gets you there ahead of all the people who don't like rolling out of the rack that early. Lot less hassle. And you get home much earlier as well.
Plus it's a drag waiting around for a 3:00 game much less a Sunday night or having to wait a whole extra day for a Monday nighter. I hate that. I don't like the wait even when they are on the road. That Monday night opener will be brutal. Waiting and waiting and waiting....
