Default Yesterdays disaster

The yellow lot was the most unorganized parking lot I have ever seen at a sporting event in my life. There was no one directing traffic it looked as if they had sold twice as many passes as they had spaces to park. It took 45 mins to park and no one was showing the cars where to go and where there were spaces.

I am all for tailgating but these tailgaters that don't have season tickets have got to go it has become a joke.

Then once I get in the stadium I have pre paid game programs but there is not one vender in the entire stadium that has any programs. WTF??

I park in Orange lot. Because of events beyond my control, I got to Reliant @ 11:20. They had to park me on the middle of Reliant Parkway.

Some A-hole bumped into my truck & now there is a huge dent on the passenger side rear door....

unghh

I park and tailgate in the Yellow Lot.

It was pretty ridiculous. We usually get there before 8:30 and have no problem getting a great spot on the grass. Yesterday we got there at 8:20 and the entire grass lot was full which is out of the norm.

I don't think they oversold passes it is because some tailgaters take up more spaces then they are allotted.

We actually gave up one of our spaces, which we had a pass for that we were using for some tables and coolers to let someone park.

By about 11:15 people were parking in the middle of lot just not giving a damn. It was complete chaos, but knowing the game was sold out and that tickets were going for 4-5x face value should have alerted some folks that it might be good to get there early.

Still they need to either better train the parking lot people, have more cops directing traffic in the lot, or send some tow trucks to make some room.

(Long time lurker that just never posts)......I've been a season ticket holder for 4 years now and yesterday's parking was an unmitigated disaster. I park in the Maroon lot and the parking attendants royally blew their one job. They actually triple parked at the Maroon lot's 610 exit, completely blocking it. Thankfully one parking spot size lane was able to be opened up via the moving of a few cars. Throughout the maroon lot the attendants allowed cars to be boxed in with other cars. It was like a valet service on steroids, except nobody had the keys to move any cars. Of course the attendants had no answers for how we were supposed to leave. Just a total disaster from the word go. This will be the last year I park in the Maroon. (And getting there earlier won't solve this problem, I was at the lot at 10:50 and it was already bad, but finding a spot wasn't the problem; even if finding a spot is the problem, my life will rarely allow me to show up at 8AM to tailgate).

The Yellow Lot seemed ok to me. I got to the stadium at about 10:30. Stopped and yaked with my tailgate for a bit and was in my seat by 11:30. Yeah, it took longer to get a parking space but then again, it was a huge crowd.

I actually had plans to get there around 9:30 & party with the Blue Crew, but I went to a wedding the night before... let's just say there was a lot of partying afterwards.

I got up late & had to go pick up my daughter from her cousins... & she wasn't ready when I got there...

yadda-yadda-yadda...
