Damn you, Super Bowl XVMILLION, for getting our hopes up. Just when we thought your sustainability initiatives like composting and reusing fry oil meant something, you had to go and poop on it all.
ESPN reports that the Super Bowl gods (who must be really high -- up in the sky, we mean) have forbidden people to walk to the big game, or even get dropped off by car or taxi, unless that vehicle has a parking pass. (You also can’t tailgate, because there is to be NO FUN at this Super Sporting Event™.)
You CAN take New Jersey Transit -- the suckitude of which is the subject of at least one blog -- but the NFL would much prefer you pay to ride a bus from one of its nine “Fan Express” zones in New Jersey and New York. The bus at least qualifies as mass transit, except people will doubtless be driving to the pickup locations -- plus folks are a little irked about the $51 price tag. On the Sports Illustrated blog, Sean Conboy accuses the NFL of something totally preposterous: GREED.
