NEW ORLEANS – A bicycle? A balloon? Ammunition?
The U.S. Secret Service has released a list of things that will not be allowed inside the Superdome during Monday night’s National Championship.
Some of the banned items seem obvious: Who would take a bicycle to an indoor football game? Or ammunition? Come on.
But some other things on the list might seem perfectly okay– and aren’t. No selfie sticks. No balloons. No aerosols (sorry ladies, that means no mini-bottles of hairspray in your clear, plastic purse.)
The Secret Service says that fans “will be required to undergo an additional level of security screening” on Monday, in addition to the Superdome’s rules for regular games. President Donald Trump is still expected to attend the championship– another reason for extra security.
Here’s the Secret Service list of “prohibited items” in alphabetical order.
Animals other than service/guide animals
Bags and signs exceeding size restrictions
Drones and other unmanned aircraft systems
Glass, thermal or metal containers
Signs exceeding the size restrictions (20x3x1/4″)
Support for signs and and placards
Recreational motorized mobility devices, and
Weapons of any kind.
