Planning on attending Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium? I suggest you leave everything at home or the hotel except your clothing.


Getting into an NFL game has become pretty difficult in recent years. Show up any later than fifteen minutes after the gate opens and you’re going to be waiting in line as your checked by security.

Depending on when you show up and the size of the crowd, you could end up standing in the security line for over a half hour. Trust me – I know.

Understandably, every NFL team disallows a handful of items at games for safety reasons, but the the Super Bowl may be taking things a bit further according to a prohibited list captured by Jane McManus.

There are a lot of typical items you can’t bring in – open drinks, beach balls, fireworks, etc. But no strollers? I mean – I don’t think many infants will be attending the game, but really? And no umbrellas? Even though there’s a good chance the game could be played during a snow/rain storm?


The exclusion of footballs at the game is really going to hurt the ratings, by the way.
