1. To those of you who work in security and facility operations – thank you. I know your job is going to get that much tougher, but sporting events cannot succeed is a safe manner without all that you do. Take every precaution and tell us what we need to do to keep things safe. We are listening and we need your expertise more than ever. 2. To fans that attend games – be patient and understanding. Yes, pat downs, metal detector wands and bag checks can slow things down, and if you show up at the last minute, you might not get in on time. But the staff at these venues do what they do to protect everyone. Be calm, wait in line and listen to what they ask of you. And if you remember to think of it, thank them for protecting you.
