EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — It doesn't matter if you've dropped thousands of dollars on tickets. It doesn't matter if you've traveled 3,000 miles to get there. And it doesn't matter if you offer to shovel the snow that's sure to come to the Meadowlands.
You will not be allowed to tailgate at Super Bowl XLVIII. Unless you literally stay inside your car while you do it.
"You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car," game committee CEO Al Kelly said during a Monday news conference. "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."
No word yet on if you can strap your grill to the roof of your car and throw on a couple steaks and some brats (though, on second thought, if you're using a gas grill, this might not be a great idea).
