The Philadelphia Eagles naturally , is also not allowed on park premises.

"We realized that appearing in a Super Bowl for only the third time—and first time since losing to the Patriots in 2005—was disorienting for Philadelphia fans," the Esplanade Association executive director, Michael Nichols, said, according to WCBV, "and that clarity on acceptable items to bring in our park should be offered."

Here's the full list of all banned items:

  • Any Philadelphia sports apparel
  • Cheesesteak sandwiches
  • Cracked copper bells
  • Soft pretzels
  • Philadelphia-brand cream cheese
  • Anything in the shade "Midnight Green"
  • Mummers, which are these people apparently:
  • Will Smith
  • Sylvester Stallone
  • Crisco

The Esplanade Association doesn't really get into specifics on how it will enforce these rules—it likely won't have a team of enforcers walking around to check cream cheese labels or whatever. But if you're in Boston and considering a nice stroll along the Charles River this weekend with a busted copper bell in tow, it might be best to hold off until after the big game. Especially since Patriots fans have been known to set stuff on fire when they're pissed.
