Default First Real Home Game

I did not, but did anyone go to PPL park?

How was the state of emergency? Did anyone get mugged?

I was there. The stadium is nice and everything but the concourse feels very minor league. It was like I was watching the Iron Pigs or something. The scoreboard is wayyyy to small. Concessions are pretty good -- lots of variety and lines aren't too bad. It was certainly a better atmosphere than the Sixers games I go to.

Parking is a fucking disaster. I parked on some grass lawn and paid $15. I'm pretty sure it was official parking but I could be wrong.

Here's the thing: we got the hell out of there as soon as the game ended and just sped up 95. I know the stadium is supposed to revitalize Chester and everything, and I'm trying not to be too cynical, but the city is depressing as hell.

They did a good job of hiring local folks as greeters and workers so that it wasn't an "us vs them" townies type thing.

I had a good time. A win and 3 great goals certainly helped.

My seats are awesome.

Btw - I'm not gonna make all the games so if anyone wants to buy my tickets at face for a particular game, PM me.
