This is the greatest football stadium in the country! I've been to games everywhere between Miami and Minneapolis, and the renovations made here are outstanding! The service is unmatched too with the most friendly ushers around.
It is such an amazing place with so many accommodations for fans and visitors. In addition, the ushers and local law enforcement are always so courteous. One even offered to guide me to my destination when I was a first-time visitor. In addition, the local restaurants and food are pretty delicious. Last, but not least, GO IRISH!
