Dunno About Super Bowl Sunday Being a No-Fun Zone. But No-Fly Zone? You Betcha.

No doubt this will displease Shotgun Schutze, the noted model rocketeer and crop-duster who has crazy-big plans for Super Bowl Sunday. But via RotorNews we get a look at the Federal Aviation Administration's just-issued temporary flight restrictions issued for Dallas-Fort Worth during that weekend. Among the myriad do's and don't:
The following operations are not authorized within this TFR: flight training, practice instrument approaches, aerobatic flight, glider operations, parachute operations, ultralight, hang gliding, balloon operations, tethered aerostats/balloons, agriculture/crop dusting, animal population control flight operations, banner towing operations, model aircraft operations, model rocketry, seaplane/amphibious water operations, and unmanned aerial systems (UAS).
Just as well. My seaplane's in the shop anyhow. Errant seamen.

In reality, this is to prevent pimps from parachuting fresh hookers into Arlington as the police use up the initial supplies. ;>

But nothing about operating a hijacked, explosive filled, spike covered blimp? Good, my Superbowl plans don't have to change.

Well there goes Jerry's ego if things can't be tethered at the EnormoDome

No 'amphibious water operations' ?? No "tethered balloons"?

Damned intrusive federal government.

Or damned Super Bowl Committee and damned Cowboys.

Which, around here (in the pages of the Dallas Morning News), seem to be just about the same thing.
