Chargers security is in the bag
Alfre vans dAnd despite the Chargers’ best intentions the emails to ticket buyers, the Facebook page updates, the website warnings, the signs posted at the trolle vans y stops, the $5 bags and the free ones some people still made it all the way to the security lines with bags they couldn’t bring into the stadium. Many of those unlucky fans were women, and they were not happy.
“You cannot take your purse in at all. No fanny pack, no nothing,” one perturbed purse owner could be heard shouting into her cellphone. “You can only bring in these see through bags. That’s just stupid.”
From her post in the bag check area, Emily Hill of the Chargers remained optimistic. Unlike some other teams, the Chargers were giving fans a free place to check their bags until after the game, and fans se vans emed happy that it was there. That was the hope, anyway.
“We thought we would have a lot more people complaining about it, but I think they understand,” said Hil vans l, a ticket sales rep who was a bag ambassador for the day. “Purses are the main thing. People think a clutch bag of any size is OK, and then they get to the front and they have to come back here.”
Tracy Blevins of Lemon Grove was one of those people. She loves the Chargers, but after leaving her treasured Coach purse in the bag check tent, her game face was starting to slip.
“It’s ridiculous. I didn’t hear anything about any of this,” said Blevins, looking with dismay at the bagged contents of her purse, including a rainbow lollipop she bought at Big Lots. “I hope they don’t say I can’t take my sucker in. Maybe I should eat it now so I won’t have to worry about it.”
