The Stadium Experience:

Infocision Stadium Ė Akron, OH. Let me start with I didnít want to make this trip. I was tired, feeling lazy, and just wanted to relax for my three day weekend. In fact, I was hoping for nice temperatures; so, I could go to Kent State instead. What an awful thing to say about Akron. This was no reflection on Akron, it was just how I felt. In retrospect, I am BEYOND glad that I decided to come here! Parking was across the street from the stadium and a cheap $10. If you wanted cheaper it was $5, and what looked like a much longer walk. Given the prices that I have paid for parking, $10 is cheap. Ė 9. Zipfest was a nice size, and the crowd seemed appreciative. I enjoyed it immensely. This is where I met Devin Cain. He directed us to the statue of Zippy that stands in the basketball arena. I ran into him again as I was walking around the stadium taking pics from various angles. Because of Devin, this visit transformed from another day at the park into a super experience! I cannot thank you enough, Devin! Devin was kind enough to provide me with a stadium tour (Press Area, Club Level, and field), a few gifts (love the Bobblehead!), and a warm feeling about being there. Only at EMU did I have a similar experience. Ė 10. The fans that I sat near were energized and excited about their Zips. One of them, Kimberly Winter, works for the University. She was very helpful and proud of the Zips. She explained why Akronís teams are named Zips, and offered other fun facts. With that kind of input you can only give the fans a 10. Thanks again, Kimberly. The band provided a pre-game concert on campus plus a pre-game and halftime show in the stadium. They were lively, fun, and entertaining. They had crowd participation at the on campus show. Iíll make sure to say watermelon whenever I donít know the words to a song now. Thanks, Akron. Ė 9. Concessions were average priced with your typical selection. The souvenir cup is sweet, and shall be added to my collection. Ė 7. This visit to Akron has me hyped about Zippy, the team, and the memories. Long drive to get here, but a return isnít out of the realm of possibility. I do love the MAC. Ė 45.
