    Congratz and I hope you have an awesome time! Tailgate details will probably be sketchy until we get closer to the season. But I'm sure you'll find a good crew and share some good times. :tup: :bolt:

    F36 is 50 yard line, Chargers side. That's where I am at this year.

    As for a cab from Downtown, just take the trolley. Cheaper/easier. Take a cab back if you don't want to deal with the line to get back on after the game.

    Get there much earlier for an enhanced experience. I get there about 730am and it still feels like it flys by. Youll want to hang out longer. Tailgating is half the experience. :flag:

    The Pats game is at 5:15pm. The parking lot probably won't open till noon.

    What row in the field section are your tickets? If they are too low, your view will be obstructed by the players on the sideline.

    Definitly come to our tailgater. We'll get you all the details before your trip. :tup:

    Congrats on making it to your first game in San Diego. you'll have a blast!

    You'll be close to the players, but unfortunately they'll be blocking your view of the game. You may have to watch most of the game on the jumbotron. But, you'll till have a blast. It's still worth it to see a game like that, just because you are so close.

    Every game, buddy, although I don't have to travel very far (northern California). There some season ticket holders that fly in from Baltimore, Vegas, D.C., South Carolina, NYC, that I know of. You're going to have a great time.

    FWIW you might want to upgrade your tickets, your view will be almost completely obstructed, I sat in Field 36, row 4 many years ago and I could not see much except the ball on passes and punts. You won't have any trouble selling the tickets you have. Perhaps moving up and away from the 50 will get you a better view at a similar cost. As far as where to get better tickets maybe someone else here can chime in???

    I wouldn't sit in Field unless I had to. You're just too low, it's hard to get a good view of the game. Of course if you just want to be close to the action, they're great.

    I still remember back in 02 I spent extra money to buy field level seats for my dad and I and we spent the entire game with the player's asses at eye level. I'm much happier in view because i can see everything.

    Jammer it'll be a blast to have you out there, and we are going to be merciless to the patriots and their fans

    The seats I had last year were the best I ever had. I bought them off eBay from a guy so I would have a few extras, and liked them so much I never sat in my regular seats. They were endzone, but up high in View. Looking straight at the scoreboard, great view of the formations, holes opening, etc. This year I have the same section (22), but in loge.

    Of course, the key to the end zone seats is being high enough. I got some once right behind the end zone, but lowest level. They were great when things came to that end, but the rest of the time you pretty much had to watch on the Jumbotron. And of course that day every score happened at the other end except one field goal.

    Loge 22 is great! You are right on top of the action.

    sounds like a long way to go and an expensive trip. You should fly in for another game instead... ask around, awfully depressing place to be after the game.

    Haha, I'll bite. We are SO gonna beat your cheating asses down this year. You're old, you're slow, you're not sweetheart of the ball any more. Your prom dress has questionable stains & people whisper when you walk by. Game, set, match. You, my chowda-sucking friend, are DONE. Goodell may give you chumps a pass, but not the rest of us. Only the truly blind are still clamped to your leprous privates.

    This game will sound the knell that there is a new champ in town - younger, more talented, faster, smarter, tougher, & most importantly - an HONEST winner. :tup:

    Prepare to get your *** kicked. :icon_twisted:

    Not nearly as expensive or as depressing as those Pats fans who flew to AZ only watch Eli & the NY D rip their hearts out.:lol:

    they probably just used their frequent flyer miles from all those other times, when they won.

    Here's the killer that no one has mentioned, and amunition for all you bolt fans, and making the assumption the celts don't choke and lose to LA. The Sox won. IF the Celtics win then the Pats will have lost the trifecta for Boston. That would suck. :icon_evil:

    I'm going to be at this game, too. It will be my last game for the next few years, as I'm going to be leaving the country in November. I'm pumped to see the Bolts beat down the Patsies.
