#is 08.21.2o14 | IS throwing back to the time we converted the back lot of the IS Home Office into a NO PARKING lot for patrons of the nearby football stadium to not park (and to successfully scupper heavy-handed zoning-enforcement which was punishing area residents).
INDIVIDUAL: Parking patrons attending a Denver Broncos game
GROUP SIZE: 2

The Fantasy Football Parking Lot wins a battle against bureaucracy.
Peter Miles Bergman calls it a drive-by art show. Jim “Handsome” Hanson thinks of it more as vigilante code enforcement. The three kids riding their bikes down the alley have no idea what to think of Bergman’s experiment.
They skid to a stop in the gravel and look up at the two parking-lot attendants in fluorescent orange vests hopping from foot to foot. “What’s this?” one kid asks.
"No parking," Hanson answers, as he and Bergman wave their official fluorescent-orange flags at the kids as if they were an Excursion, an Accord and an Outback waiting to pull in. "This isn’t a place to park."
The kids stare at the yellow parking strips taped into three regulation-sized spaces in the oil-stained back lot three blocks west of Invesco Field at Mile High. The orange cones, the flexible plastic posts, the wooden sign inscribed with the word “NO” in two-foot-tall red letters. Then they look at each other, shrug and ride off.
