Heading to the Super Bowl? Leave your drone at home

The Federal Aviation Administration has officially declared the Super Bowl a no drone zone. So if you're heading to watch the Patriots take on the Seahawks on Sunday, leave your drone at home.

Look, we get it. Drones are fun. But as we've seen repeatedly over the last few months, they can also be a major nuisance.

So if you are planning to bring your drone to the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., on Sunday for the Super Bowl, you should probably go ahead and leave that drone at home.

The Federal Aviation Administration has declared the Super Bowl a no drone zone in a somewhat cheesy, 15-second clip posted to YouTube on Wednesday, urging attendees of the biggest sporting event in America not to spoil the game with any pesky unmanned aircraft.

Not that you'd be able to sneak a drone past security anyway. While the University of Phoenix Stadium's official prohibited items list doesn't explicitly specify that visitors can't bring drones, security will likely confiscate drones under the catch-all rule that any item deemed inappropriate or hazardous by stadium security isn't allowed in.

Plus, you probably don't want to be that guy. So just sit back, grab a beer, and enjoy those expensive seats as you watch the Patriots take on the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX.
