Texans fan in need of some advice on the opener

Hey fellas,

I'm a Texans fan up in the OC that is planning on coming down to Qualcomm for the Monday Night Opener. Just wanted to get some advice on how to do this the right way and had a few questions:

1. I work at NFLN and will likely be working all day Monday considering it's the day after opening Sunday and we will be busy as shit. Considering the drive from LA to SD is a doozy, what time should I aim to be at the stadium by? If I leave by 2-230 will I make it in time to find decent parking? How long does it take to park now that we're on the subject? Are there any better ways to get to the stadium than the freeway?

2. What is the best place to get a ticket on the cost/view scale? I was thinking on the second level (I think it's called the plaza) at the 50 yard line, but I'm not sure. Is stubhub the best/cheapest place to get tickets or should I try to go through the team when they go on sale?

3. What is the atmosphere like? Am I going to get mobbed for wearing my J.J. Watt Jersey?

Thanks for any advice ya'll can offer.
