    I haven't seen anything posted about it yet so if it has, blah, blah, blah....

    Got my season tix the other day and saw that they had the new shop open (plus wanted to check out the new traffic patterns etc.). As a critic of the old Pro Shop at Gillette I've got to say I like this one way better. Everything was laid out nicely and the selection was greater IMO than the old one. The old one was good for clothes but I thought it lacked the tailgating/novelties that you saw on the online store. The new store has the whole first wall for this stuff and it seems like just about everything that is online is in the store (picked up a couple of shot glasses, set of cars for my 3 year old boy, a jersey for my 5 year old girl's birthday). They have some good stuff for the truck/car. The new shop is near where the players/staff parking lot is on the home side of the stadium. Instead of in the front it goes along the side. If your going to TC it is worth stopping in, or if your like me and just need an excuse to go to the stadium....

    Also some interesting new traffic set-ups. I was only on the south side but they have an island in the middle of the N/S lanes now and you can see where the exit for the Bass Pro Shop is going to be. If this is going to make traffic better I don't know. IT won't be until SD that we'll know, the preseason games usually aren't a good indication because of the amount of fans that have never been to a game and the fact that people leave earlier then a regular season game.

    Huh. I didn't know any of that. Won't be back down there until camp next week. Thanks for the heads up.

    So what is in the old proshop location?

    Is the island the only thing different about traffic flow? Anything changed in the lots/access road?

    Another proshop.. NICE.. I always liked their prices and product so I'm really looking forward to it now.

    On the traffic patterns.. Traffic is horrible there.. Sometimes I feel like skipping a game and meeting up with buddies so I don't get stuck..

    Speaking of Pats souvenirs, does anyone know where I can get a mini banner from the first Super Bowl win? They gave out mini banners for #2 and #3 at the following season openers, but I'd love to find one from the first Super Bowl to fill out the collection before #4 is given out in 14 months. Anyone know?
