First off, do you live in Virginia Beach?

If so, you might just want to think about staying at a hotel, itll be a long drive up, and home.

I got to the game about an hour before it started; mostly so I could find the seats, check out the stadium, and mess around.

Make sure you're loud, this is one of the best expierences you can have. I just went to my first game when we played the Eagles, a loss, but still a fun day for me.

Im not to sure where the Orange lots are, so I cant help you out there.

Make sure you bring some warm clothes, it gets cold in the high sections.

I sat in section 432, row 6, and had a perfect view, but considering youre higher, im not sure if itll be the same, better or worse. Just make some noise buddy, thats all we ask.

And your ex gfs mom gave them to you? What, do she have the hots for you or something :lol:

You're up in there! I won't lie to you, but you really can't get a bad seat at FedEx unless its in the obstructed view area. I would suggest getting there at least two hours before the game! Traffic can be REALLY bad if you arrive at the stadium past two hours........not saying it is all the time, but I've had some REAL bad experiences when I've run that late!

I only suggest arriving two hours before kick off just to avoid traffic............its really better to arrive at least three hours before kick off! Tailgating is ALOT of fun! Its part of the game almost! And THN has their own tailgate and I would strongly suggest that you go there! It will make your first game that much more fun! And I've never hit any traffic arriving that early!

Since its your first game.......usually the ushers are cool with this...........I would suggest finding a empty seat on the lower level, you'll have to leave once you get close to kick off, but you can chill out and watch the warm ups there on the lower level. Hey! you might get lucky and find an empty seat for the whole game!

Hopefully we'll win! Games are so much more fun when we win!

vbskinsfan: Congrats on getting out to FedEx for the first time. I'm sure you'll have a blast, just like IB and RR have said.

I do have a special request, though:

If you drink, please resist the urge to "celebrate" your first time at FedEx by getting way too hammered.

The last thing you wanna do is be that guy that's able to clear a section because he's puking his guts out in the stands (i've witnessed it first hand at FedEx).

Other than that, enjoy the game, have a blast, and an awesome New Year!!!! :up:
VIVA SEXY!!!

my first game was awsome.....im a diehard nascar fan too and been to many many races but this was soooo much more fun. i definatly plan on going to more games next year.


the only bad part was getting all pumped up and yelling and screaming and screaming on 3rd and 8(or 7 dont remember lol) only to have ur defense screw the pooch more than once....although we all know we could write a novel on our defense screwing us this year. oooo and wanting to knock a few giants fans in the face for trying to talk crap to me after the game when i didnt say a word to em lol.

No, sadly, a novel is a work of fiction, the story of the Redskins pathetic defense is depressingly factual
