    Wow...first come first serve?!?!? Are they crazy??? I've never been to a game where tickets were sold that way, only concerts,...and even then it caused major problems.
    I can't even imagine.

    Doesn't look like they had too many shovel volunteers! (unlike at Lambeau)

    Maybe those are the owners hoping to get a crowd there somehow.

    And no alcohol?? How else can they keep warm!??! lol! Well it will be interesting to see how that all works out for them!

    Every university stadium I have been to did not allow alcohol sales. Exception, when the Cardinals were playing at ASU, they installed luxury boxes and those rich folks could drink. Really good Public Relations.

    This first come first served nonsense is going to create a problem. Both Bears and Vikings fans have the extreme potential to get nasty AND they don't like each other. Those 15,000 + fans that get shafted out of their tickets are going to get pissed, especially if they are Vikings fans and Bears fans are making it in. I don't think they are going to be able to pull this off without at least one fight between fans. I wouldn't be surprised to see Vikings fans turn on each other trying to get in. It's not really fair, to be honest. This is a division game, a big one for the Bears too as they could clinch the division. The problem is, there isn't much of an alternative, somebody is going to get screwed either way. Maybe this is the best solution under the circumstances but when you are dealing with these two particular fan bases you are just asking for trouble. I hope they have security there.

    People are going to probably be camping out overnight there despite the frigid temperatures. They might just find a bunch of frozen "purple" Vikings fans waiting outside of the stadium on Monday morning.
