    Habs fan from MTL,

    Just came back from Philly over the weekend to watch the Phillies Friday & Saturday (annual baseball summer trip in different cities with my friends).

    Let me tell you something...WOW! Your city is beautiful (not only the stadiums area). I’m glad I was able to go there.

    Cheers!

    Hey Im going to the Phillies game with my brother on July 14th to get the Ryan Howard bobblehead and other souvenirs from the stadium. Afterwards were'going to the Extreme Rules WWE PPV at Wells Fargo Center. Are we allowed to bring drawstring bags into the arena? Or is there a locker area to store bags before passing security? I read up on the website about the Wells Fargo bag policy but I figured I would get some clarification from Philly fans who go there regularly.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Until someone can answer directly, an option is to contact the facility directly via this link:

    A draw string bag should be fine, although I think they did tweak the bag policy during this past season and i'm not sure where it stands currently though.

    Hey guys I’m going to the Gold Cup quarterfinal at the Linc on Sunday. Some of my group going is driving in from Jersey. Any estimate on what parking near the stadium runs you on game days? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    For Eagles games it’s usually $50, I believe, for the official lots.

    For the Flyers, it’s $20-$25.

    So probably somewhere in between.

    Hey guys! Blues fan here in peace!

    Just wanted to come by and say thank you for all of the support during our Cup run.

    If I ever make to Philly some time, I’m gonna swing by that infamous bar and knock back a few and buy some swag.

    Cheers!

    Go Eagles!

    What does that mean? Do you get to just take naps all day while the truck drives itself?

    TuSimple and Pima Community College launch first-ever AV certificate program for truck drivers - FreightWaves

    It means I'd be at there office or operating center, controlling the truck.

    The reason im doing this, if robots take over, ill be needing a job. So them still needing drivers is good but being the 1st to learn it, means ill have first dibs at the job buffet.

    Infact I had the director and CEO on LinkedIn message me, they said once you complete the course, ill be offered a job immediately.

    Also if robots fail, I can return to driving like I have been for 10 yrs.

    Win win for me.

    But this new job is home daily and better pay

    This course is even created yet, that's how new and groundbreaking it is.

    It starts September, enrollment August, August is when prices will be announced

    5 classes 12 credits total.

    1 class I was able to do now 1 credit.



    So they will waive this course or credit me 1 class 1 credit. 4 to go 11 credits lol.

    I'm ahead for once

    I am going to the Red Bulls / Union playoff game next Sunday. Has anyone taken public transportation from Philly to Talen Energy Stadium in Chester (or just to Chester in general)? I'm living in Old City and won't have my car that weekend. It looks like an absolute pain in the ass to get to TES from here. Is there anything that I am missing? I can imagine that an Uber will be expensive.

    The septa Wilmington line goes to Chester TC. I'm not sure how far of a walk it is to the stadium, but uber would be very cheap.

    No, you're not missing anything. It's a giant pain the in the ass.

    Sorry I don't have anything really specific to add, but just from what I've picked up from seeing others talk about it, the suggestion is to pay for the Uber and skip the train. The train schedule is not synced up to the Union match time and also isn't in the best area.

    Great to see the old barn looking shiny and new.

    If you're in the area, it should be a fun event.

We gonna celebrate my birthday and want to take a stop at the Broad Street Bullies Pub before the Game starts, do we have to reserve a table or is it possible to get a table without reservation if we arrive about 4 hours before the game starts?

    I haven't seen any details/recommendations about the food and drink on site at Wells Fargo. Since we're coming in from
    Lansdale I don't know if we'll be eating beforehand or at the arena and would like to know what the best options are. I sure as hell hope it's better than the overpriced dogshit they give out at Sabres games. I've gotten better food at a 7-11.

    It’s definitely overpriced, but there’s some decent options now if you wander around. Not exactly the best health food, but there’s a reasonable amount of options - especially with the renovations downstairs.

    I usually go to chickies and Pete’s before the games which has pretty standard bar food along with some decent shellfish. Pretty damn good crabs.

    I can give you some options in center city as well if you start out there.
