Two classic NFL franchises battling it out in the Super Bowl.
One classic pastime missing from the parking lot.
The NFL has banned all tailgating within a one-mile radius of Miami's Dolphin Stadium prior to Sunday's showdown, a precautionary policy that has some enthusiasts crying foul.
No sizzling barbecues. No stocked coolers. No grown-ups dressed head to toe in Chicago Bears or Indianapolis Colts gear taunting one another.
"The 'No Fun League' has forgotten what football is all about," said Mike Baum, a Bears superfan and tailgater extraordinaire. "They've forgotten that tailgating is a lifestyle. These are the die-hards that make football go."
