One Response to NFL Game Volunteer

    I worked the Houston vs 49er NFL game and had a very good time. I worked the “D” gate security, checking fans with the metal detector and checking bags for illegal items like knives, improper size bags, alcohol, etc. The day was long, but rewarding. I arrived at the Cow Palace about 1030, road the bus to Candlestick checking in at 1100. I was assigned to my station about 1300 where I worked until taking one 15 minute break, followed by a 45 minute Subway Sandwich lunch which cost $5 and is taken from the earnings.

    The excitement about gate “D” is it is the media gate where celebrities enter the stadium. At the end of the game, I observed Al Michaels (ABC Sports) and Cris Collinsworth (ABC Sports & NFL Hall of Famer) enter and leave the stadium a couple of times and had the opportunity to personally meet, shake hands, and speak with Bob Costas (ABC Sports) and Hines Ward (ABC Sports & a future Hall of Fame wind receive of Pittsburgh Steelers).

    As noted, the day was long. I signed out at 2100 and caught the bus back to the Cow Palace, only to discover a fire and several accidents blocked the Bay Bridge and I had to go home using the Golden Gate. With the delays, it took about 2.5 hours to get home. But it was worth the experience and I am looking forward to the next home game.
