Video: The In-Car Super Bowl Tailgate

Posted by Dave On December - 18 - 2013

There has been so much news surrounding this year’s Super Bowl Tailgating Ban that quite honestly, we have not even touched the issue. We tackled this issue back in 2008 but apparently the “mainstream” media are just now picking up on this and are now outraged. Maybe it is because the Super Bowl is in the New York media market and all the journalists there are now first learning of this long standing ban.

NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee CEO Al Kelly was chastized for saying there will be no tailgating at the Super Bowl. He later walked that comment back by saying there is a loophole: “You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car,” Kelly said. “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.”

Pia Catton, Jim Chairusmi and Geoff Foster of the Wall Street Journal treked out to MetLife Stadium on a recent afternoon to see if tailgating inside one’s car was a possible alternative. This is their video:
