Texas Rangers' Opening Day (possible tailgating warning)

Who is going? It's going to be a mid-day game on a Monday, so I think an early tailgating is in order. I'[m going to have my son (14) and myself, so I was thinking of getting there a few hours prior, hanging out at the back of the pick-up, having a few beers, Dr Peppers, grill some brats and burgers...

I'll be headed back to Iraq the following day, so I thought I would be justified in taking Trey out of school for a day.

April 5th vs. Toronto

That's sounds great. I might be game if I can get my son(15) out of school. I would go by myself, but if you have a 14 year old boy then at least mine will have someone his own age to talk at the game unlike normal where it's just his mom and I.


What branch are you in, or are you a civilian contractor?

I've taken off the whole day. I'll be in section 22, row 25.

Pretty close to my seats last year

There might be scattered singles still available from the offical site. Otherwise you're stuck with Craigslist or a ticket broker.

I screwed up and did not order my tickets before Sat. and guess what...never got through Sat. before it sold out. I am still hoping to get tickets from a friend at work, his MIL works for CBS radio and always has tickets for us.

We were planning on tailgating ourselves before I screwed up the ticket deal. We always park out behind right field, behind the season ticket lot.

If I don't make it ya'll have fun! If I do we'll have the grill going and the beer flowing so stop by and say hi!

Well, as it sits, I'm open to any parking lot. My wife got my tickets, so I'm not sure where I'll be sitting, but walking isn't an issue. I was thinking about the parking lot right next to the Dr Pepper Youth Park.

Oh, and I'm just a civilian contractor, home for a couple of weeks.

My dad invited me to join him for opening day this year, but I've got a finance test that afternoon that conveniently starts at about the same time as the first pitch. Awesome.

Is the tailgating by the Dr. Pepper youth park still on? I don't mind a little walk. Our seats are behind homeplate.

We will be there, with a group of about 75. I'll be in line at 7 am for the lot immediately south of the Stadium. I'm not going to the game, though. I'm just going for the booze and food.

If I remember correctly the B-1s were about a minute early last year and 2 minutes late the year before. I'll be there but I'm not sure what section yet.
