Something about that second picture in your post seems wrong, though. The south end zone appears to be all one level without two separate decks, and the outside of the south end looks wrong. It looks like the north end but that's not how the real thing looks. Is that second photo real? It l...

I've never been in this stadium, but every stadium or arena I've been in, seat #1 is closest to the lower section number next to it.
For example, you are asking about section 135. Seat #1 will be next to section 134 and goes up towards section 136.
So, according to the map posted above, lo...

No AC in North Stadium when I was there. So in the Summer, when you want a breeze, it was coming from the South, so you didn't feel a damn thing.
