Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve stepped into the Georgia Dome for a pro football game. It’s the Falcons, after all.
Apparently, it can be an arduous affair with long security checkpoints not unlike a trip through the airport. But now, for an annual fee of $100 to $128, NFL fans in Atlanta, D.C., San Francisco and Denver can bypass all of that and slide through a speedier security line. It’s coming to Baltimore and Oakland next year, the same pay-for-speed program rolling out in airports. (Buying a pass for Falcons’ games also gets you a pass for Hartsfield.)
What a crock. Like a game-day ticket and a few beers doesn’t already cost enough? And if it’s the same security we’re subjected to at airports, it’s not making us any safer. Just slower and crankier.
