Why not? A Barack Obama mask. Somehow this guy got through security at Invesco Field with the thing. I guess they forgot to put it on their list of items *not* to bring to the stadium. No umbrellas, no food, no drink, but Obama masks, fine.

Actually, at least one demonstrator somehow was able to get through with a sign. He was walking through the concourse carrying a sign about Europe opposing Obama. The next time I saw him the sign was gone.

I wasn't fast enough on the draw to get a photo of the protestor, but I did get one of the real Mr. Obama. He's the little dot, you know the one next that other dot on the page. OK, the camera I have isn't that great, but at least it's proof to show I was there.

It really isn't much compared to some of my colleagues in the media, who were riding from the stadium in the bus back to the Pepsi Center. One sat right in front of Tipper Gore. Another spotted Oprah in the crowd.

I just got this guy in an Obama mask.

Hopefully KSL's Randall Jeppesen will get a better glance at some celebrities next week in Minnesota.
