My experience at the Guardians opener

Recommended Posts

Cool story.  I chose to follow the Guardians because they are the closest, and for being a Jets fan, so NY fits.  Also Love the name and theme of the team too so it all works.

 

I was with the girlfriend today so I didn't get a chance to catch the game like yesterdays games.  I may try to make it out to a game one day to watch it especially since it isn't that cost prohibitive.

Thanks for the info. My brother and I are planning to take his two sons to one of the games in March.

Did they pipe fake crowd noise into the stadium too, or is that just a bonus for those who watch from home?

Suspect in addition to lower security costs, NJSEA wants people to be more inclined to buy food and drinks inside rather than tailgate.

Buffalo might as well be called Southern Canada. It isn't New York.

Except you need a passport to get into Canada now. You might need one to get out of Buffalo.

That’s funny.
My son has been pretty excited to catch on to something from the beginning and looked forward to watching the XFL games. We are still deciding whether to be NY Guardian or DC Defenders fans. Good thing is both won and they are the least ridiculous unis in my opinion.

But right after the long bomb drive and the subsequent TD pass by the guardians my wife stopped by and said “hey maybe you guys could actually root for a winning football for once!”
Friggin Ravens fans!

DC Defenders 4 Life.

Apart from the Jets, I'm very happy to root against anyone or anything from the State of New York (or New Jersey), sports wise.  

Nats > Mets

Caps > Rangers/Islanders

Wiza.....ah, screw that, they all suck too much to care.

And now, for as long as it lasts, Defenders > Guardians.

Funny tho how their names are basically the same thing.

I think I might go to the game vs St. Louis in March. My friends and I are all pretty invested in the Guardians but one of them likes St. Louis so i'm looking forward to it.

Says the guy who roots for the team that LITERALLY doesn't play in New York. 😄

It plays close enough to the only part of NY that actually matters.  

Enjoy Niagara Falls, I guess?

So what is the guardians mascot supposed to be?  Looks like some sort of big cat - any specifics?

North Jersey is more NY than you could ever hope to be. Buffalo, with it's rust belt problems and lake effect snow isn't NY, it's an afterthought.

I suggested to the NY Jets tailgate only parking closer to the stadium and just a park and lock enter game lot back behind the horse stables at the race track. 

People who don't tailgate could use the walk to think about all their troubles and why they don't have friends and family to tailgate with.

I love hearing this stuff, the part about being affordable for a family is huge. I'm a big fan of what they are doing and hope that it can last. At the very least I hope the NFL adopts all these rules.

haha. Such great points. I didn't even put the name thing together.  The San Diego Sentries are next. :) 

Ya know what? I am actually leaning toward the Defenders for the reason you outlined. I'm a friggin prisoner to NY/NJ/BK sports having lived up there most of my life. This is a great opportunity man!  I'm FREEEEEEEEE!!!! 

DC DEFENDERS 4 life!!!   hahaha 

 

 

Although... the Guardians sure did look pretty good!   Hmmm

It's so cute that somebody from north Jersey thinks he can actually talk smack about someone ELSE'S city. 

Buffalo may have snow (oh no, snow! What EVER will I do?!) and suffer through various economic problems, but at least the entire city doesn't smell like a dirty diaper swimming in a see of toxic waste. I've been all over this country, and north Jersey is just one of the grossest, dirtiest, most horrendous places there is. And you want to talk smack about western New York? Sure man, good luck with that.

Speaking of which New York team is best, it took Sam Darnold until week 9 of the season to have as many wins in MetLife Stadium as Josh Allen had there by the end of week 2. Fun season, wasn't it?

Obviously you've only been to Jersey City and not explored anywhere else in Northern Jersey.  Where I grew up we were surrounded by beautiful trees and wildlife.  Night and day difference from the northern Jersey you're talking about, which is accurate.

In short, GFY.  You have a RB at QB and you live in Siberia.
