Interplas.com to provide NFL teams with clear ziplock bags for new stadium policy
PRWeb via Digital Journal
Are you ready for some football? Just make sure that you have a clear 12" x 12" ziplock resealable plastic bag if you plan on attending any NFL football games this year. One of the headlines prior to the opening games of the NFL pre-season is not about a particular player or which team is primed to win the Superbowl; it's about ziplock bags and the new NFL "All Clear" stadium policy. This new stadium security policy is a proactive step by the NFL that was designed for two reasons: to help speed up the security screening process for fans entering the stadium, and to enhance security and safety both inside and outside the stadium.

Colorado State installing new $574,000 video board at Hughes Stadium
The Coloradoan
Hughes Stadium might not be home to the CSU football team for much longer if a proposed on-campus stadium becomes a reality, but the athletic department is making the most of Hughes' life by installing a new video scoreboard in the south end zone. The new scoreboard, which will cost just less than $574,000, will be the same size as the previous one, approximately 29.5 feet tall by 47 feet wide. That requires Colorado State University to do minimal structural changes to the board's frame. The difference between the old and new system is the entire north-facing panel will be digital, expanding the video board to size of the frame.
