Sunblock of Mass Destruction

Security at Yankee stadium has been confiscating sunscreen to prevent terrorism.

Ladies and gentlemen, The Bronx is sunburning.

Yankee fans are seeing – and turning – red over a ban on sunscreen, which Stadium security guards say was widely expanded in the last few weeks.

Security guards collected garbage bags full of sunblock at the entrances to Yankee Stadium over the sweltering weekend, when temps hit 96 degrees and the UV index reached a skin-scorching 9 out of 10 – a move team officials said was to protect the Stadium from terrorism.

And then:

The Stadium does sell 1-ounce bottles of Arizona Sun SPF 15 for $5 – a huge markup that makes its beer seem cheap.
