not even a pair of underwear! Although I doubt any airlines actually 
enforce this, it IS written in their rules. This scared me away from 
carrying my son's fencing gear in a golf bag. (Just try getting a sword 
in your carry on)!

FWIW, here's Continental's policy

they carry just about anything

Continental Airlines will accept one hand glider per customer as checked 
baggage. Domestically, a hang glider is subject to a $100 service charge 
(each way).

Gymnastic equipment.. no problem, but if you have a bag o' shotputs, you 
will have to pay the overweight fee.

they do say, in re ski bags
Ski bags measuring over 62 linear inches (157 cm) that contain other 
items in addition to or in place of ski equipment will be subject to the 
applicable oversize charge.  (no sneaking your javelin on in a ski bag!)
