Please let me know the following:

What area are we meeting? (Area outside of stadium, parking section...)

What time should we all meet?

Who needs a parking pass? (People that NEED one only)

Is there a section we are all sitting at (or try to stay around?)

That's where I was planning on going. 06 also suggested that we just bring our own stuff which kind of makes sense for you guys coming in from out of town. If you want to do potluck, I can't bring a whole lot because I'm on public transportation but I can bring some stuff.

I'll do whatever the consensus is.

P.S. It'll be great to see you again inFINs and we finally get to meet the great, immortal AJ and the goddess of cheerleading, 13.:D

Right now, I'm focusing on those those things and the camaraderie. It's the only way to take the sting out of last Sunday.:cry:

I can't believe this... I just realized that I was entirely confused... I won't be able to make the MNF game this week against the Bears. I have all my college exams that Monday, and I was planning on going to the Raiders football game on the 15th...

Man, I was really lookin forward to meetin everyone too... :cry:

Oh well... maybe next time...

You lost me AJ. Your exams are the week before the Raiders game? Why would you have to miss it?:confused:

Did I tell anyone that I have to take this medication for a week that makes me REALLY tired? LMAO :lol:

Ok, I thought everyone was going to the MNF game against the Bears. If so, I won't be able to make that. However, if anyone is going to the Raiders game on the 15th, I'll be able to go :rocker:

So... everyone is going to the Raiders game... right? LOL

Is there a section we are all sitting at (or try to stay around?) as far as i know, everybody is gonna meet at east 23 for tailgating. inFINS, wants me to call him saturday. since finfanman is giving me an extra parking permit, maybe we can meet up somewhere and he can save $20 for parking!;)

:lol:

You guys are the bestest!

Actually, it's the time off of work that would be hard to manage...I'd have to be back at work bright and early Monday morning....
I can get a ticket from Atlantic City to Miami for about $200, so that's no problem, are there still tickets available for the game?

inFINSible
12-05-2002, 11:35 AM
There are ALWAYS tickets at the game........might not be the best seats in the world but they will be in the Stadium in Miami in Florida, so you will have that.;)

Hi everyone, we are flying in from California just to see the Dolphins kick Raider butt at home.. :)

So I would like to get a parking pass and meet you all, if its still possible.. Since we will be living out of a hotel, I doubt we can bring much, but will do whatever we can..

GO PHINS!!

I will be tailgating with my buddy from Orlando. What time are you all meeting? Maybe I'll swing by and meet some of you guys/gals while we're wandering around the parking lot looking for rest rooms and port-a-potties... I think we'll be firing up our grill and breakin' out the cold ones around 9am. Do you know where you guys will all hangout, once you meet up?

Peace,

There are 6 of us coming down from Orlando. We should be there by 10am. We will be bringing a grill and food to tailgate, but we will be in the cash lot unless I can get a Orange parking pass. We can meet up at East 23 or SportsTown. The following FinHeaven dudes will be with me:

Dolfan984 & girlfriend, Chicagodolphan, JayDog57 and my boyfriend.

We have the van rented and the tickets in hand.......Let's Go Dolphins, Let's Go!! :D

Also, any ideas how we all will be able to see where we are?

Can someone get me a parking pass? I will gladly pay you back. I can meet up with you on Saturday to pay you and get the pass. I'll try and run by the stadium on Saturday, but I don't think they will have any more by then... :-( C'mon, someone help a brotha' out!

If it's south beach, then it's pretty easy and less expensive to use transit. There are two ways for all those interested:
1. Take the Metrorail to the Tri-Rail transfer station ($1.25), then take the Tri-Rail round-trip ($4) to Golden Glades. From there take the shuttle round trip to the station ($4). Just be sure to get to the Tri-Rail transfer station in time for the train because they run like every three hours. Here's a link to the schedule:
http://www.tri-rail.com/schedules_fares/ntm_wend.htm
total cost: $10.50

2. Catch bus #77 north to Golden Glades and then catch the shuttle. Here's a link to the bus schedule:
http://www.co.miami-dade.fl.us/transit/metrobus/routes/schedule.asp?R1=SUNDAY%20%20&R2=North%20Bound%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20%20&route=77
total cost including a transfer from a bus from south beach to downtown and back: $7

Thanks for the info Miamian, but I was wanting the parking pass so my buddy and I could tailgate. We've got all the burgers, steaks, 'dogs, and beer ready! If we don't get into the lots at the stadium, then we'll just party at the ones across/down the street. Sure would be nice, though...

Well I was at the game, yet was unable to tailgate. In fact I am still unsure of the lot at all, even after 2 games. On Sunday's game somehow the car we were in went on the wrong highway(75) and it had no entrance to the turnpike. Eventually we ended up getting in via a street linking up with the street that is hwy 441. Then it was gridlock, so it took about 1 hour 35 minutes to get into a west cash lot from a hotel on SW17th in Ft Lauderdale.

Hi miadphan13,

Not sure how much you paid, but for future reference there is always plenty of parking passes for sale the day of the game on the way to the stadium, usually go for $20. Hope to meet up with you and the rest of the gang next year.
