Planning to go to a New Orleans Saints game at the Unnamed Luxury Car Superdome this year? Listen up, people.
That Buddy D Schwegmann bag from the bad old days? Leave it among your souvenirs. Your kids' diaper bag? Put those Pampers in a clear Ziploc. And tampons? Well, break out your clutch purse from the Muses ball.
The National Football League has announced new and fairly stringent regulations about what kind of bags you may and may not bring to football games
from now on:
• Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12.” (Official NFL team logo clear plastic tote bags are available through club merchandise outlets or at nflshop.com), or
• One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
• Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bag options.
• An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.
What's verboten, you ask?
Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: purses larger than a clutch bag, coolers, briefcases, backpacks, fanny packs, cinch bags, seat cushions, luggage of any kind, computer bags and camera bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.
The whole list is here.
Under the jump: excited reaction from local fans.
