    Leave early. Park in any of the p lots that are open on the left side right before you get to Gillete. Do not park in p10. A lot of the lot is gravel , and it sucks in bad weather. Gets very icy. Park in the main lots. The small lots on the side are the same price , but they are not as fun as parking in the sea of tailgators. Just leave early and you will be fine.

    Dress warm and sacrifice a few plays when the pats are on O to use the restroom. Dont try to go at halftime!


    Dress warm!

    Just be loud when the Pats are on defense. Especially on 3rd downs.

    dont forget; you will not be moving much. therefore you will be colder than you normally would in cold weather. i work outside, and i made the mistake of wearing normal work clothes, and i froze.

    tomorrow will require what I used to call my "Full Monty" package in my younger days at the old Sheaffer stadium.

    Heavyweight long underwear neck to ankles (the kind that pulls the sweat away from your body)

    Cottonpoly turtle neck shirt. Heavy Flannel Shirt. Irish Knit Sweater.

    Lined Khaki Pants. Waterproof Ski Pants over them.

    Woolen ski mask that left only my eyes exposed. Heavy duty stocking cap over it.

    Two pairs of socks, the second of thick wool. Hiking Boots.

    The biggest scarf in my closet.

    Heavy Down Parka with hood. Flasks in two, zipped inner pockets (Jameson's only).

    Seat warmer for seat.

    Warm and cozy. Enjoy.

    Unlike Golf, in Football, the more points that your team scores, the better.

    Disable Jersey

    Make LOTS of noise when the Jets have the ball
    Ignore those effete snobs with chablis and quiche next to you who frown

    No profanity, but chants of R...A...T...S! RATS! RATS! RATS! are OK

    DO NOT make lots of noise when the Pats have the ball

    ...UNLESS they just got a 1st down or scored

    Go whiz when the Pats are on D with a TV time out but never at halftime

    It's amazing how many corporate attendees don't seem to know this
