NFL Bans Tailgating For Super Bowl XLVIII

Thinking of firing up your grills at MetLife Stadium for the Super Bowl come February 2nd?

Think again.

In an effort to free up as much parking space as possible, the NFL has not only banned tailgating, but also cab and limo service to the stadium. Super Bowl committee CEO Al Kelly explained in a press conference…

You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car. And provided you’re in the boundaries of a single parking space, you’ll be able to eat or drink right next to your car. However, you’re not going to be able to take out a lounge chair, you’re not going to be able to take out a grill, and you’re not going to be able to take up more than one parking space. And it’ll all be watched very carefully.

I don’t know about you, but this doesn’t sound like too much fun to me. Who wants to have to eat and drink cramped in their car? Then again, the ticket prices are so ridiculous…who could afford to go? Premium seats are going for over $2,600 (Similar seating was $1,250 at last year’s Super Bowl in New Orleans). Next tier seats are going for $1,500.

I think I’ll enjoy the game at home in the warm confines of my place, away from all the traffic and the twenty dollar beers.
