Toronto Raptors fans line up for Jurassic Park three days before Game 5
Angie Taylor and Tyler Seaton of Cambridge, Ont., say they’ve been in line since Friday
Diehard Toronto Raptors fans are lining up days in advance for a spot in the outdoor fan zone known as Jurassic Park for Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night.
The fences that block off the entrance to the area won't open for more than two days.
After 33-year-old Angie Taylor and 31-year-old Tyler Seaton watched Game 4 in Jurassic Park on Friday night, the pair got back right back in line for Game 5 against the Golden State Warriors.
"We're here till Monday game time. Go Raps go!" Seaton said.
The Raptors could claim their first NBA title against the defending champions, after beating the Warriors 105-92 on Friday to take a three-games-to-one lead in the best-of-seven series.
Sleeping overnight, Taylor said, she could hear Raptors fans celebrating into the early hours of Saturday morning.
They've been taking shifts between sleeping and guarding their belongings. They've packed groceries and a miniature portable grill to get through the next few days. Taylor also brought along a book and dry shampoo.
Taylor said she plans to keep herself entertained by talking to Raptors fans passing by — along with anyone else that lines up with them.
"The Raptors are such an amazing team, and the fans are so friendly — everyone here in Toronto is so friendly," she said.
There's a bathroom nearby, and Seaton said they have everything they need.
"This is a one-time opportunity to see the Raptors make history," Seaton said. "This is worth it."
