I almost always work past 10pm, and catch seemingly all the "game trains", quite often, there is not any room on the trians, and depending on the game, if it was close, when it started, if people left early, OT, good game, bad game, all determine when people will leave the game to catch the next train or wait it out and not leave until the game is over, then catch the next train. Of course, not every train will get hit, but there typically is one that gets clobbered, and the others get the early leavers, or the straggelers.
I think quite possibly the worse train I ever worked was 2 years ago, 8 cars not even any standing room, it was a hot summer night, both the Yankees adn Mets were playing at home and we got both the crowds from both the games. People were throwing up left and right, picking fights, drinking, screaming yelling, it was horrible, and to top it off, we got delayed because Portal was stuck open for about 45 mintues. For my own safety, I did not even attempt to enter the cars, as it was impossible anyway due to the people, but a drunk toughguy is all I would have needed in my face about why we have been sitting in one place for so long......im almost sure one of us would have been going to jail, and it sure's hell wasn't gonna be me.
But worse than any baseball/hockey/basketball game is wrestling....oh jesus christ those trains are just the worst possible thing you could imagine....
So yes, this whole thing has the potential to be a real pain in the ass!!!!
