This will be my first game at Gillette and only my second home game ever. I am renting a car from Logan on Sunday morning, what time should I leave to arrive there right when the gates open? (4 - 4.5 hours prior to 1pm kick-off?). I'm guessing there wouldn't be much traffic at 7am or 8am on a Sunday but I don't want to assume. I got tickets off of eBay from a broker which e-mailed them to me. Can I check whether my tickets are valid without actually entering the stadium? In other words can they scan to see that its valid say 3 hours before kick off and then I can come back at 30 minutes prior to kick-off to actually enter? I'm thinking that if I got scammed, I would still have time to buy from scalpers. This would be a worst case scenario but I already spent a lot of money to get to Boston so I'm not going to Foxboro and not see the game. Can I bring signs in? Are there restrictions regarding size and materials? Is it shorts weather throughout the game? Or should I expect it to be cold by the end of the game (and during post-game tailgating)? How early and late is the pro shop open? When is the least busy time (I heard the line is usually out the door)?
