I guess I should've gone to 5. I was gonna go to 2 since it was the closest, but someone yesterday had said the 2 is usually the worst gate to go to for giveaways, so I went to 3. Didn't get one anyway.

Got in line at Gate 2 about 10:30... didn't get in until 11:45. Obviously, too late for a ring. I'm a little bummed, but more more bummed I saw a L. :whiner:

Pretty much the same timeframe for me. I got into the Gate 5 line at about 11:10 and had my ring by 11:30.

Gate 5, Got there at 1045, got in about 11:20......got a ring. Seemed like gate 3 ran out about 11:45 as that was when i was waiting for a friend there and people stopped walking in with them.

Gate 3 lines moved pretty fast. Gate 2 was the worst line to get a ring.

Gate 5 was the way to go. Got there around 10:40 and got one, looked like there were still plenty too. Didn't expect so many people, but got it no problem

I got in line at 10:10 gate 2, went through around 11:30 got a ring and as I passed through one of the scanners they use to read tickets wasnt working in the line next to the one I was in and no one in that line was moving. They cant use another scanner for another line I heard them say.

I walked up into the stadium and saw people running to gate 5. My friend and I walked over there and walked right in and got a ring.

There have been previous threads regarding what time to show up which included information that Gate 2 absolutely SUCKS when trying to get a promotional item.

Went to gate 3 around 10:15 after parking our car and walked in about 11:15 and got one. A friend of mine who brought his handicapped father got screwed in Gate 4 (which is the handicap entrance) because they allowed anyone to come in. Apparently that gate only got 1 or 2 boxes of 100 to give out. But thats what he told me, don't know personally.

I got to the gate (5) soon after 11 and got my ring around 11:30. I was actually surprised, I even called Hendu before saying that I wasn't going to get a ring.

Got to gate 5 at 10:05 or so and we were almost at the front. Got through the gates with my ring in hand by 11:07, took my spot in LF for BP at 11:15.

*I don't know if i'm allowed to do this, and if i'm not, just roudhouse this or whatever, but if no one is gonna ask, I will*

Would anyone who got more than one ring be willing to part with one? (i.e. Give it to me)

I got to Gate 2 around 9am and definitley got the ring. I was also lucky enough to purchase a ring from a guy in the Patio bar for $20.00 and a couple beers so I plan on giving it to my Uncle as a early Bday present.

Lt. Deuce will not be pleased, as picking up a ring was my specific objective. Then again, she is in Baghdad right now, so what can she possibly do to me... Oh snap, she comes back next week! Must find a place to hide!!!

Hell ya! I hung out at Fun-damentals for nearly the entire game (yes, I do have a 7-year old) - ringing it from the balcony. Unlike Puffers, I don't think it was as effective at the Cell.

Got a green light to go at the last minute(wife due w/ our 4th any minute now, Full ST holder regardless) Breezed the Dan Ryan made it there in 13 minutes ramp to ramp, which is envieable to pre construction times. got in line at 10:40. Worked our way up the long funnel of Gate3 entry, and was officially in and ringed by 11:16. Whoever the guy was that made it in almost 1st, ran up the ramps, to the top, and cheered up the crowd from the top, KUDOS!!! Everyone out waiting got a big kick out of it!!!:bandance: :bandance:

Took the Red Line, got there at 1140. Gate 5 just ran out when we got in. No biggie. They didn't have them, they didn't have them. Some guys in the next line over was offering all sorts of money for the ticket takers to find them one. Some people just don't grasp the concept of "no more".

Got to the park at 10:45 am, the line outside Gate 5 was already snaking around Shields and on to 35th Street, but I've always had good luck getting the premiums there, so I stuck with it. Took about 13 minutes or so to get inside and got my ring, no problem! :D:

I would expect some sort of replica ring to be available for purchase in the not to distant future. There's too much demand to not produce 'em. But hopefully its a variant of the one given out at the park, especially since the whole family got 'em on Tuesday!
