  5. I'm not sure about parking fees. But at the very least should be less expensive than game days I would imagine.
  6. I'd just get there as soon as you can to give you some space between the start of open practice and getting your ticket.
  7. It's free. Just show up at the Amway Center box office and you won't even have to pay the .75 cent Ticketmaster fee.

    Rashard and Q-Rich's Week 4 NFL Picks

    After watching every game Ryan Fitzpatrick quarterbacked as a member of the Cincinnati Bengals, I have good reason not to pick the Bills. But, I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for Fitz and hope he does well.

    Howard Gearing Up in Weight Room

    I was fortunate enough to be there. After speaking with him for over an hour, I think Dwight Howard is definitely going to take another step as a leader this season and I think you’ll see that translate into greater effort and success from all of the players around him. He's definitely growing in that manner. Some other links you may find interesting: Howard takes you step-by-step through his workout in this video: http://www.nba.com/magic/video/2010/09/17/DWIGHTHOWARDWORKOUTmov-1417702/index.html Photos here: http://www.nba.com/magic/photogallery/howardworkout092010_1.html
