“I just brought myself out so I can feel the energy, get the momentum going, cause tomorrow we are the winners and we’re going to the super bowl,” said Peggy Avila, a Rams fan.

Fans were getting first dibs on Rams swag at the “equipment room,” opening up for the first time in weeks.

“We had a little over 800 posters to give away, they were a gift with purchase for fans here, and we’ve already gone through them in the first three hours that we’ve been open,” said Gabriel Jimenez, merchandise retail manager.
