just bought my ticket... return to the old stomping grounds. any interested in sharing a room? i'll most likely be staying at a Hilton property somewhere. Flying SEA-DTW Friday night, who knows where I'm staying that night, then Saturday night in CBUS, then who knows, fly back Tuesday from DTW.

An unexpected meeting on the 8th in Dallas means that I'm now in for this. Looking forward to my first trip to Columbus. What's the thinking on rental car vs. taxi+public transit for this? Are we prefuncing at the stadium, or somewhere else beforehand?

Our handy-dandy travel guide for Columbus says get a rental car.

In the past we've always had a no-host tailgate at the stadium

I have family in the area who are Sounders fans and just told me they might want to go to the game with me. Is there a ticket purchase deadline? will tickets be available?. The store says 4 in stock, not sure if that means only 4 left total.

4 left TOTAL. Our ticket deadline passed for telling Columbus how much we'd buy, we snagged 4 extras. Buy them before they are gone!

I just bought the last two in the shop. I actually need three so if any spares turn up let me know. Otherwise I'm thinking I'll just buy a regular ticket and hope the third family member can squeeze in our section.

Looks like I need a ticket, too. I thought I'd purchased one.

Looks like the weather may hold. Long term last week was calling for thunderstorms. Looks like 80/62 and partly cloudy now, so this is good.

FYI to those staying at the Days Inn, it is not exactly the nicest area of town. Pretty rough area. The hotel itself, at least when i've driven by it, leaves something to be desired. Good price though on what is a busy weekend in Columbus.

Ohio State spring commencement is Sunday, so avoid that area, it will be a madhouse.

See you all on the terrace!!
