Invesco Field Today --Wear Your Sunscreen

First, don't drive there--the parking lots are charging exorbitant rates if you can even get there. Fox News' crew said they were just asked to pay 2000 dollars today to park or they couldn't have the space.

Security is going to be a nightmare--so if you don't get there early, you might not get in. It opens at 1pm Denver time and unless you have VIP seating--it's first come, first serve--so you better be there at 1 (and that is 8 hours till Barack speaks--I've seen different tallies but he doesn't speak until 8pm Denver time ). But wear lots of sunscreen because you are not allowed to bring umbrellas, nor food or drink --so bring lotsa money--here's a list from the Denver Post:

WHAT NOT TO BRING: Outside food, beverages or coolers

Umbrellas (raincoats or ponchos are allowed)

Large bags, suitcases or backpacks

Noisemakers, air horns, whistles, cowbells, horns, bull horns or other voice enhancement devices.

Signs, banners, flags or any other items that would either obstruct the view of a patron or serve as a security risk

Any and all unauthorized merchandise, including unapproved pamphlets, handouts, advertisements, etc.

Knives of any size, razor blades or sharp and/or pointed objects like scissors, knitting needles, etc.

Mace/pepper spray or aerosol containers


Weapons of any kind, including toy weapons, or any article that might be used as a weapon and/or compromise public safety as well as canes, chains, sticks of any length

Screwdrivers or Leatherman brand or similar tools

Dangerous or hazardous items or materials including chemical, biological, radiological, etc.

Animals (except service or guide dogs)

Folding chairs

Laser devices


Bikes, inline skates, skateboards, scooters, shoes with wheels

Illegal drugs and any other illegal substances
