After some deliberation, I decided to attend this game.  The game was to begin at 6:05, an hour earlier than normal.  Gates open on weekdays at 4:30 for 7:05 games, so I was expecting the gates to open at 3:30.

My wife and I got to Cleveland early, and picked up our tickets at the will call window around 3 and got in line at the gate.  A girl came out and set everything up (tables, ropes, garbage cans, signs).  She told some people that the gates were to open at 3:30.  Yes!

Imagine my displeasure when the girl left to find the workers at 3:30 and returned with, “Uh, the gates aren’t opening until 4:30.” 

I had to stand there, already in a bad mood, and listen to an autograph hound talk about his autograph exploits for an hour.  He was talking obnoxiously loud.  One of those people that wants everyone to hear his conversation.
