Tommy Zolla, a Patriots fan at the airport said these obstacles won’t keep fans from flocking to Minneapolis.

“Definitely, there are so many patriots fans that are willing to fly out there to go,” Zolla told 22News. “I think it’s just starting to get better. More people are going than they use to.”
