    Good to know, if I end up buying a last minute ticket. Avoid the upper south end.

    Yep, there's going to be a sizeable chunk of LAFC fans in the stadium. I'd estimate about 2k including the staff and player families. The Nordecke better be ready to bring it because the 3252 don't mess around. They are probably the best SG in the league when it comes to organization, coordination, and participation during the game. They'll probably be better than what Portland brought in 2015 which was special in its own right. Should make for an insanely fun atmosphere.

    I like Max, but it’s a little odd that he’s suppose to be an impartial TV broadcaster for Apple TV but he works for LAFC

    Just a heads up, Paul's can be busy on saturday. DK's is near by, and can also be busy. If the wait everywhere is too long, Basic Biscuits at the bottom of the hill in Grandview makes some decent biscuit sandwiches, and the owner(s) are crew fans.

    Yep.

    For the last few days, the situation with people trying to get tickets has swallowed the conversation whole. Now, we’re close enough to it that Actually Have To Play Syndrome is setting in. (That’s a real psychological condition. It’s in the journals. Seriously. Look it up.) For a week, this has been an event. A reason to celebrate. A chance to envision all the amazing emotions we’ll have when we cross the finish line. And then, you reach the point where you realize, “shit, we actually have to PLAY this game.”

    I think that’s when the real excitement starts.

    Paul's is great.

    If it's too long to get in there ... Sunny Day Cafe down the street on W. 5th, across from Penn Station, is another option to get in and out of quickly in that area.

    I'm not in a terrible hurry tomorrow, so a bit of a wait at Paul's Pantry at 11am doesn't concern me much. It just such an awesome breakfast spot. In my early Crew fandom days I lived basically across the street and spent a lot of Sunday mornings after a Crew Saturday home game putting some grease into my unsettled stomach.

    I'm meeting former poster Foosinho (I think that's how he spelled it but the site isn't recognizing the user name) there at 11. Offer still stands for picking up the tab for up to 10 BS posters.

    The SW gate. The one right near where the team will be entering at 2:15 and where crew supporters would probably think to enter after welcoming the team.

    For those of you not attending the game, are you going anywhere to watch? If you are, I'll let my brother know. He might be able to join you folks.

    Late decisions are ok. I'll be there if you're able to make a late decision.

    I actually would but I'm supposed to meet someone at a place called George's in Linworth. He assures me that it's excellent.

    Everyone can enter through the main part of the Nordecke and say hey to me cause I don't think I can make it all the way up there unfortunately after all of the other walking before the match etc.

    Thanks, I was not aware of that particular measurement method and it is certainly what my brain thinks of when I think of "Metropolitan". I do get that people drive into the "closest big town" and that is Columbus for a lot of people in that area. But a lot of them also don't feel like they are in the greater Columbus area, either. That's all I meant. But the other one fits my vibe far more.

    I guess I'm lame defined because I frequently make it to a match right before the players come out. I'm a hermit these days. Coming out to matches is about as much of going out that I do these days, for the most part. Sometimes I will come out earlier but rarely. I'm gonna try tomorrow but no promises, without a tailgate close to the stadium. I'd love to walk up to the Big Soccer section but that might be outside of my current mobility wheelhouse.
