The Blazer fans deserve some tailgating action. It’s not the same going to a bar/paying 8$ for a cup of beer. I want a big parking lot, portable grilling, multiple beer coolers, music, some “tobacco” cigarettes away from kids, and cool P-town cops.
My first pro game was watching the Phillies. I remember getting one of those miniature bats at the ticket gate and the cheering of the crowd. The parking lot was like a giant block party and just as much fun as the game.
I'm not saying we should have a Shakedown Street, though I wouldn't mind it. I just want a spot where we can park our cars and gather before a game that's walking distance to the coliseum. If the city won't designate such a spot, then perhaps they could give us a location where we can use the MAX for free.
One might argue about the weather and complain about the rain. To that, I say go back to where you came from. My friends and I will be just fine, (I'm from Utah so no offense to us transplants).
