Rail service to Giants Stadium open for soccer Sunday
I rode in a train car from Secaucus to E..Rutherford Monday with John Mara, Woody Johnson, Jon Corzine, Damien Woody, Jerricho Cotchery, Rich Seubert and Kareem McKenzie.
Then I wrote a newspaper column about the new rail service to the Meadowlands, a feature 33 years overdue.
Mara called it the most exciting element of the entire new stadium project.
It's unclear how many fans will take advantage of the spur to the Meadowlands - particularly those in far-off Long Island - but the teams hope at least 10,000 per game will.
The idea is to fill some of the tailgating gap with new stuff to do (and eat and buy) near the stadium for those arriving by train.
Also in the column, Jets executive VP Matt Higgins discusses the recent mailing offering anyone on the waiting list a shot at tickets for 2009, and Mara discusses the Giants' decision to cut prices on some club level seats for 2010.
