More ridiculous Yankee Stadium security: no iPads

Trying to get into Yankee Stadium is one of the most amazing experiences you’ll ever have.

Yankee Stadium security can be quite entertaining.  They make you remove your cap when you enter.  As you may have heard, baseball cap bombs are one of the major threats to our society.  I mean, why would anyone wear a cap to a ballgame unless they were up to something.    That knife you hid in your sock?  Don’t worry about that – please remove your cap sir.

There was the great suntan lotion ban from a few years ago.   How many stadiums needed to be destroyed by suntan lotion villains before the Yankees had the courage to put a stop to it?

Sometimes they kind of allow bags, and sometimes they don’t.   Big League Stew has let us all know about yet another item that is not allowed in Yankee Stadium. iPads.

Stew points out that the TSA doesn’t even make you take an ipad out of a bag if you want to bring it on an airplane.

By Yankee Stadium I mean the fake new one where all the true Yankees like A-Rod play.
