Hey all, first post, long time Jets fan (all 28 years). I've browsed these forums off and on for a number of years, just never registered. I'm looking to go to my FIRST Jets home game. I live in WNY, and my dad takes me to the Bills-Jets game in Buffalo most years (I've probably been to 10-12 of them), and I've always wanted to go to a home game. Well my wife and son and I will be in the Philly area next weekend and I may finally get my chance. My wife really wants us to go (she's not a big football, but knows how much I want to go, and it's on my birthday), but the cost is pretty insane compared to a game in Buffalo and money's kinda tight right now, so I'm trying to be cost effective. Myself, my wife (5-months pregnant), and my 20-month old son will be going. We are looking at getting two tickets and having the kiddo sit on our laps (he's under 34" tall). I'm looking for advice on seats, parking, tailgating, hotels. Seats - I don't think my wife could take the 3rd deck. Both from the standpoint of steepness of steps, and from my experience in Buffalo, the 3rd deck tends to have more profane-laced drunkards, which I'm trying to avoid the best I can (impossible I'm sure to avoid completely). I fould seats in 220a for $125 each (ouch), but it's near a family restroom, has fewer seats between isles and being in the 2nd deck, I'm hoping for a more family-friendly crowd. Thoughts? Tailgating - Would love to tailgate with some Jets fans. Can't really supply our own stuff to do it ourselves, we'll have our car packed from our trip. Any advice? What time to plan on being there, other "open" tailgates to join. Obviously we can pitch money in, to partake in someone else's grilling expenses. Hotels - Need to find something within an hour drive of the stadium in the direction of western NY. Cost is a major factor! Parking - I want to get there as soon as I can, and we need to head north up Rt 17 following the game towards home, though it's dependant on what hotel we end up at after the game. Help out a fellow Jets fan! Thanks!
