No Tailgating Allowed at Super Bowl XLVII

When I heard the news that there would be no tailgating allowed at the Super Bowl this year, I literally gasped out loud and my heart started palpitating. It is so wrong, on so many levels to ban tailgating at Super Bowl. The two go hand in hand, so how could you even call it a "Super Bowl" without the presence of grills and tents in the parking lot? To me, it's un-American to not tailgate, especially at a Super Bowl game.

Here is the officially statement from the dumb ass, president and CEO of the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee, Al Kelly, "You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in you car. 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."

If I had a pickup truck, I would just setup my tailgate spread in the bed of the truck, technically I am still in my car. I would love to know your thoughts on the issue. Do you guys think this will become a trend for major football games? We already have the purse ban, now the tailgate ban, I wonder what's next to go?
