Fans checked outside Super Bowl, too


DALLAS -- At this year's Super Bowl, even people stuck outside the stadium will get a pat-down from a security guard.

The 5,000 fans paying $200 to watch the game on big screens outside massive Cowboys Stadium will be subjected to the same security searches as the 100,000-plus who will watch the game inside on Sunday.

The six-figure attendance number presents the most unique challenge the NFL faces at this, the 10th Super Bowl since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
