The one where the Flyers & Sixers play, and our favorite band played Ten last time they were there. I will use the poll winner in my own signature. So really big stakes here. (lol)

    I thought Pierre called it the big joint? Or is that what he calls Camden?

    I did call it the FU Center when it was that.

    The lot isn't that bad,relative to others,  until you consider how impossibly close to 2 highways it is.  Shit should empty quickly.   For baseball I have it down cold.  Still can take a while for hockey and straight up fuck leaving Eagles games.  We stay in the club until they kick us out an hour after game ends and still have to wait.

    Not enough exits and they have those guard stations. I hate that gate with the guard stations.  Annoys the shit out of me.   Then the light at cbp doesn’t stay green long enough.  If you don’t get out quick it sucks. And the damn cones for I guess vip parking.  What is that shit? 

    I don’t mind CBP lot.  Never had issues there. 

    But agree access in general is fantastic.  Perfect place for the stadiums.
