I'm curious to see if there are any noticeable changes this season because outside of the name change, it's the same management company, same managers and outside of normal turnover, same employees.

The crew in Lot B dropped the ball, IMO. They were letting the overflow park in Lot B, having these cars park (on an angle) in the areas between the rows of cars, where people had their tailgates parties set up for hours.

Been a while since I went to an opening day, was the crazy long line to get into the park normal or is it going to be like that from now on because of the wanding.

The new MLB mandated wanding is what caused the terrible bottleneck. I have a feeling it will be this way until the mandatory "walk thru" metal detectors are installed in 2015.

I'm guessing it'll all depend on crowd sizes until they get the kinks worked out. The odds of having a sellout like yesterday, or a crowd anywhere near that size, is probably unlikely in the near future. I wish that wasn't the case, but we all know how it goes.

Oops didn't know that we are starting PaulieNo tomorrow. Really glad we won the opener. PaulieNo (career 13-32 4.93ERA) vs. Correia (career 69-78 4.49ERA)

We had a great time way up high in section 536. Although the wind was brutal, at least we were not freezing to death. We waited for quite a while at gate 3 to get in, before noticing that there were long lines to the left and right, but no line in the middle, so we went up the middle. Maybe they need people directing the crowd around some to get folks in faster.

One other gripe is the food and beer lines, especially the specialty lines like for sausages/hotdogs. People are lined up from one end of the walkway to the other, blocking people from being able to walk by. They need to turn the lines or put corrals in, like they do for the helmet nachos. It gets really hard to get through the congestion. Other than that, it was great to see the season start with a win.

I don't understand why you needed to add the superfluous "E" in his name. Isn't PauliNO good enough??

I mean PaulieNo pretty much summed up Konerko appearing in Monday's game anyways.
