    Park in the ghetto and walk across the tracks.

    Some of the Developmental Squad players may be looking for a couple extra bucks - I bet they'd give you a ride for enough dough to buy a Happy Meal.

    Prob'ly have to get to the stadium early. though...

    I don't know but I did notice that the entrance on 17th near 4th has a $5 sign at the booth. I don't know if that will be for the match or if that was for something else but it was still there today.

    Big Love is giving me ideas about lightening the load around here for everybody. A 2nd wife would cut my wife's responsibilities in half, it seems.

    Of course, knowing my luck it'd double my problems. :)

    Anywho, I actually walked to games sometimes when I lived down at King and Neil. Yes, after they built the new stadium. It was a long walk.

    I think there are people that park at Home Depot (or Frisch's) and walk over. I see people coming from that direction before the game, and heading back that way after the game. You could possibly risk getting towed?

    I don't know for sure, but somebody is parking over there somewhere.

    yeah, the three of you could come to the game together and that would reduce the cost of parking per person.

    I remember Chelsey posting that she always parks her car (with prominent Crew sinage) at Lowes/Big Boy with no problem.

    As far as parking your car next to the train tracks I don't see any reason to fear that particular neighborhood. There are much worse areas in Columbus and that block near the stadium is one of the least scariest places on Campus.

    Plus, it's a day game. Nothing scary about parking on campus and crossing the tracks in daylight.

    Before GA was fired last year, I attended matches while boycotting the Crew financially (no parking, no concessions, buy from scalper). Anyway I parked at Lowes without any issues. I did make it a point to buy something inexpensive there though.

    I suggest everybody parks in Yitbos' front yard & sidewalk. I heard a rumor that he was also going to have a cooler full of frosty brews for all his Crew friends that park there.

    I just park at Lowe's right by the stadium. I never have a problem.

    I convinced my brother to go to the home opener...

    When he got back to his car after the match, he found one of his mirrors shattered.

    Not cool.

    You got one hell of a good memory, my friend. But you are correct. Never had any problems the few times I parked at Lowes.
