To run out of food before the half was ludicrous enough. Why are you having a pat down to enter the stadium? It serves no purpose. Saturday at gate D there was a stampede to get through as it was almost kickoff. Someone could easily have been killed. It was just like the soccer games in other countries. All the pat down does is slow entry.If I wanted to sneak something in I could do it with no trouble or worry about being caught.

Were I to write of TCF And the Gopher stadium, I'd give the first game grade an "F", Though some higher than would some. Within a mile you cannot park Except in season football lots Costing 12 to 30 hundred bucks -- So that half were empty spots. For 70 you can park far out Then simply take a shuttle bus, Which most the fans did do no doubt And happily, it wasn't us. And then the gates were only 5 (And at the Dome there had been 8); The lines were blocks and snaked through lots Which made both lines and cars irate. The band performed before the game -- An hour fore the kickoff start, And then we left -- our seats to claim -- To too few gates, too far apart.'Twas 50 minutes in a line That almost seemed to move backwards, While screaming were my hips and spine As well as fans' well-chosen words. And late, we made it to our seats With the 50 dollar backs, Which, by the way, do lift off neat For frisbee fighting maniacs. And snack-line waits 3/4 hour -- Until, of course, they're out of food And fans with dry mouths lemon sour -- But outside food they must exclude. And only seats for half the band, Which they stuck into a hole, To make their sound more weak and bland -- To shrink The Pride of Gophers' role. And aft the game was traffic stopped,'Twas an hour from a ramp; For traffic flow had meter cops, But the shuttles were the champs. The shuttle lines were out of sight -- They thought it smart to park and ride; They waited there for half the night While we stepped with smuggly stride.
