Half The Fun Is Getting There

The article in today's Herald pertaining to the parking situation at the new ballpark during last night's game was reposted in toto by the other two local fishwraps, in all probability because those papers' reporters couldn't get their cars through all the traffic.

The article discussed how, in the stadium's first game with prepaid parking, people who didn't prepay had to scramble to get spots anywhere they could find them - some for as long as an hour-and-a half.

I had it better. I went to the game, and I actually had prepaid parking, and at 6:30 PM it took only 25 minutes to go the three blocks from southbound 17th Avenue into the entrance of the south garages, which is where we were directed to. No left turn lights, cars backed up into the blocked intersections, cars stuck behind the locals' cars parked along the sides of the street, one possible cop on the corner waving drivers in to drive through the turn lanes, and then getting into the garage and discovering that the parking spaces are all sized for Fiats and Smart cars.

Yeah, it was great. It was so great we actually somehow made it into the building. I'll post some pictures of it later.

Meanwhile, if you got tickets for the Yankees series, better start heading over there now.
