OK, I get it. There are rules to tailgating.
No quiche, first of all. Meat products must be prominently displayed and enthusiastically consumed. You may bring a veggie tray, if you like -- but, if you do, expect to be treated like the weirdo you are.
Oh, yeah. If you happen to be tailgating in the parking lot outside Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego ("Qualcomm" being Klingon for "no fun of any kind," apparently), you may not under any circumstances toss a football around.
This qualifies as "playing ball," and there's an ordinance against that. No, really. Cost this poor dude $280.
(Partly because, no doubt, when the cops told him he couldn't toss a football around, he thought they were joking and ignored them. What reasonable individual wouldn't?)
Anyway ... what I find curious about this is that, while there's a law against tossing a football around at a football tailgate, there doesn't seem to be one against playing cornhole. Which, having run the gantlet of all those benighted cornhole boards in the Notre Dame parking lot on game days, I find curious.
I mean, we're talking beanbags flying around everywhere, for heaven's sake. You could put an eye out with those things.
