Where did the tents around the stadium disappear to? That's where I usually get any stuff. I was annoyed at that. Did the security zones have an impact on them? I wasn't desperate for anything this year but I told my friend from Seattle I'd try to get her a game-specific cap/bobble hat. They sold out fast online so no choice but to check at the game. I started queuing around 4:30 I guess. I stopped looking at my watch so no idea how long I was there for; I lost count of the number of people who wanted to walk straight through the middle of the queue to pass. At least offer me some of your chips if you're going to be too lazy to walk around When I reached the front the cap had sold out...but the sweet girl let me have the one on display. I've never seen the queues like that inside the stadium before.

The energy and atmosphere was due to the changes.
Funnily enough, the guy behind me in the merchandise queue mentioned this about the energy and atmosphere.
