You did it.  You got tickets to go see the Bills.  Now you're planning out your day.  The question is, "What can you bring into the stadium with you?"

The annual Blue Vs. Red practice is being held at Highmark Stadium tonight.  For many of the players, it will be the first time they will be able to see Bills Mafia in their natural habitat.  They'll be able to experience at least a little taste of what it will be like on a game day.

For many of the fans, it's their first time seeing the team on the turf with their own eyes.  It really is a whole different experience to be at the game.  You can follow the team all year from your couch, but there's something different about being in the stadium when history happens.

A free practice session is a great opportunity for a family that might not be able to afford to watch them any other time throughout the season. So if this is your first time going to the stadium, you need to know that there are some things that you won't be able to bring in with you and yes, they check at the door.
