MILWAUKEE -- The party started even before the tailgating officially started as lines of cars filled Miller Park for Brewers Opening Day Friday, April 6th. Some fans got out of their cars and immediately began Opening Day festivities. The parking lots at Miller Park opened a full hour-and-a half early Friday.

Throwing bags in the parking lot, having a few cold ones and enjoying great grilled food are the kinds of things that come to mind when thinking about Opening Day at Miller Park.

Fans like Sean Gavigan and his friends decided to bring a large stadium television experience outside the ball park. "We wanted to do something epic so this seemed like the logical fit," Gavigan said.
