    Your leaving at 9 from Riverside and plan on being in Phoenix by 3? Might be a stretch bro but look forward to meeting up with you Saturday afternoon.

    My Cardinal friends informed me that there is actually MUCH night-life practically next door to the Hampton. Should be fun:knucks:

    I know it took me 8 hours almost to the minute to get from Anaheim (1 block from the 5) to my house last week. My house is just over two hours from where you will be leaving the 10 to go North to the Hotel in Phoenix.....and I was flying pretty low :wink2:...

    I guess I could always leave at 7 or 8 cause I cant miss a second of the USC game that starts at 5. Thanks for the heads up.

    I got this from a great brother named Kade aka Salty on the Cardinals board.:up:

    Okay, first off you have everything at westgate that you could want. Hells half acre is a nice bar for your saturday evening party. Plan on leaving around 7ish because it becomes so packed that getting a drink is useless. Head across the sidewalk area to FOX sports grill. Get a bite to eat there, and enjoy watching some college games. The prices are a tiny bit high there so just do the majority of eating there. If your peeps are still wanting to party down it is a choice of prefrence. I would recomend MargeritaVille, good atsomphere, and usually has a live band playing. If you are more a a sit back and watch sports kinda guy, and don't mind the extra 1 per drink, I would say kick back at fox sports grill. There are several things to do inside Westgate so you should be fine on entertainment, and beverages. As for the game, I would suggest getting there 4 hours prior to kick off and finding a great spot on the great lawn to tailgate. Go as close to the stadium as possible, it helps walking out. The one down side to this is all of the drunk *******s coming out/in will talk **** all day to you and your fellow fans. For this its easy head away from the stadium towards our tailgate. We are usually right next to the KTAR sports tent, and there is close to 50 of us. We are all die hard Cards fans, but we all make road trips, so know the feeling of harrasment, and chaos. Let me know if there is anything else you need.

    New member here! Was on the Cardinals message board yesterday, and saw Fin Fan in Cali on there, and he mentioned this site. So, here I am!

    Driving down from Vegas Saturday, possibly going to the Sun Devils/UNLV game Saturday night, then the big game Sunday. Haven't seen a live game since I saw our boys in Buffalo in 1996, so I'm pumped!

    I'm going to read through the threads and find out where the parties are! Maybe I'll find some of you. Would be nice to party with other fans!

    No I don't bro, but here is there Alcohol policy.


    Alcohol Policy
    Staff members at University of Phoenix Stadium strongly encourage all fans to exercise responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages. Fans should be aware of the following policies during Arizona Cardinals games:
    Any fan that shows signs of impairment and/or intoxication will not be allowed to enter or will be removed from University of Phoenix Stadium and subject to arrest.
    No alcoholic beverages can be brought inside the stadium. Any attempt to bring alcohol inside the stadium or possession of an alcoholic beverage not purchased from the University of Phoenix Stadium concessionaire may result in ejection.
    State of Arizona law prohibits the sale of alcoholic beverages to persons under the age of 21 years of age. All fans should be prepared to show proper identification if requested by the concessionaire staff member.
    Concessionaire staff members reserve the right to deny service to fans that show signs of impairment and/or intoxication.
    Fans providing alcoholic beverages to persons less than 21 years of age will be ejected from University of Phoenix Stadium and subject to arrest.
    Fans possessing alcohol that do not have proper identification when requested by a concessionaire or security staff member may be ejected.
    A maximum of two alcoholic beverages or 32 ounces of beer will be sold per person per transaction.
    Alcohol sales in the general seating areas of University of Phoenix Stadium will stop at the conclusion of the third quarter.
    Alcoholic beverages are prohibited in the Family Sections (Alcohol-Free seating areas at Sections 114, 424 & 432).
    Stadium management reserves the right to change these policies and procedures at any time and without prior notice to fans.

    John, Kenny, et als -

    Looking forward to see you all. Had a blast in Flagstaff/Sedona (incredible drive and views)....saw the Dbacks the last two nights, but nothing compares to Phins vs. Cards in a few hours.

    Heading to Breakfast, then over to TailGate. Email or Txt me or call my cell. I will try your cell once I get there if I haven't found you all.

    Wow, I must say, I had a blast meeting FFiC, AZFF, and OrangeFF, and several others....and our brethen from El Paso, etc....Fin Nation is strong and willing...the team needs to continue to improve in personnel and scheme.

    We rooted hard, but somethings are outside our control on the field.

    We look forward to the day that the teams performance equals our commitment and expectations...it will happen - no doubt it will happen.

    - Scott

    Well, even though it would have been great to meet up with everyone over there, I am now glad that I did not spend the money to go there.
    Of the games that I have been to live, the only one that was as bad as this game was the 2001 game in San Francisco when Fiedler really stunk and we got shutout 21-0. The Monday night game in San Diego in 1993 was really bad also.

    Glad you Dolphins fans came out. I was surprised by the number of fans you had in the stadium. You guys travel well, and represented your team in the same fasion as you travel. Class, thanks for coming out to Arizona, I hope your trip was great(Except for your loss) and you would think about coming back soon. Thanks again guys for your tourism in our wonderful state. We have a good team this year, you shouldn't hold your head down, at home we are tough.
