I was encouraged the crowd definitely sounded louder today, at least at the beginning of the game when people were fired up...before the inept 49ers offense made its presence felt and every other person in club seats buried their face in some kind of wifi device or leave their seats empty to sit in the club.
But when it was loud, I had to lean over and pretty much yell for my son to hear me...so hopefully once the games count that will be a constant thing, though no idea how it sounds on the field or TV.
I can't say enough about getting in and out of the main parking lot...last week got to the stadium at 9:30 which was almost too early, today didn't get there until 10:45 but that was because we left the house later, not because of any traffic problems on fwy or surface streets. It is complete night and day compared to CandleDump...it's a good 25-30 more miles ONE WAY to get to Levi's, but actual time spent driving and aggravation are SO MUCH LESS than the Stick.
And speaking of the fwy, I wonder why so many people heading to the game on 680 South take Mission/262 to get to 880...that offramp is jam packed and backed up onto 680. But that's okay, the more people that want to wait there is less people taking the routes I like to use.
And then the simple act of entering the stadium gates...ALWAYS a nightmare before, now it's a total breeze, multiple gate workers with no line at all.
Yes the grass looked like poo, but that's a problem I'm sure they'll fix....but as far the stadium from a fan perspective, absolutely love it.
