Much easier to go to the stadium rally afterwards and just as satisfying.

seems like overall consensus is "dont go"

some people never know how to act. so I guess i wont be going especially not with kids.

i bet theres going to be alot of cops, so id be cautious about drinking and celebrating. lol
