Well I went to Opening Day, my 16th straight, courtesy of my father, and it was a lot of fun.
We left around the same time as usual, between 8:15 and 8:30, only when we arrived at the ballpark there was no parking to be found. This was mainly due to the M-1 light rail project closing off a few of the bigger lots north of the stadium on Woodward. But it was also due to the increasing party atmosphere that is starting to consume the event. There were a lot of tailgaters there and a lot of the parking lots closed for cars so they could be open for a party.
