This Sunday, I will be attending my first Jaguars home game. My wife and I are going to Orlando for our anniversary, and I made a swap with her that included us heading to Jacksonville Sunday for the Bears game. There are two purposes to this FanPost. One is to let you guys know I'm coming...that part is already accomplished. Part two is the interactive portion. Here's the plan:
We will be leaving Orlando around 9 AM to head up to Jacksonville. Google Maps puts us in Jacksonville around noon, though I've heard 2.5 hour estimates as well.
For us, noon is lunchtime. I'm not sure if people will be tailgating yet, or if we can even get into the parking lot yet. What time does the parking lot open? Either way, we will probably end up eating lunch somewhere in Jacksonville. I would love lunch suggestions, and I would also love to meet up with anyone that would like to join us at said lunch destination.
After lunch, we will definitely want to take part in some tailgating. Want us to come to your car/grill/random empty parking space/shade tent/wherever and hang for a bit? Let me know where you are on Sunday and I'll try to make it over.
Our seats are in section 436, row DD, seats 31 and 32. Anyone sitting near us?
After the game (probably around 7:30 PM or so?), we will probably want to go eat dinner. Again, we would love to meet up with some of you guys for dinner somewhere in Jacksonville. Suggestions welcome...preferably somewhere with beer. I don't drink beer, but my wife does.
I've never been to Jacksonville at all, so any assistance you guys can give me would be outstanding. I'm excited to finally get to see a game at "The Bank"; the only football stadium I've ever been to is in San Francisco, and it's a dump. I have no doubt this will be far, far better.
I hope to meet a large number of you Sunday, though from my experience the number of people who express interest in meeting up and the number who actually do so are usually extremely far apart. I'll be wearing my teal Monroe jersey. See you then!
