Football is my favorite sport for many reasons. The number one reason is because each of the 16 games count towards the playoffs. I also love how the entire game is exciting from start to finish. I believe a big reason for this is because each touchdown is worth so many points. You have to follow every play because each team can score at any given moment due to fumbles, interceptions, kickoff returns, punt returns, passing touchdowns, rushing touchdowns etc.
As a New Yorker you can obviously assume my favorite team. If you guessed the NY Giants you are correct! I attended a football game with my husband this past weekend. We usually try to attend at least one game together each season. This was the first game of the season that we attended and the Giants beat the Oakland Raiders, improving their record to 3-6. Do they still have a chance to make it to the playoffs? If the rest of the teams in their division keep losing, they definitely have a chance. It would be phenomenal if they can make it to the Superbowl because the Superbowl will actually be held at MetLife stadium (where both the Giants and Jets play) in February 2014.
Outfit of the day (OOTD) details:
My outfit was very simple: I wore a customized NY giants hoodie sweatshirt purchased on nflshop.com. I wore it with a long t shirt, a turtleneck and a turban style hijab. I fully coordinated the team colors of red and blue and topped it off with some RiRi Woo lipstick from MAC. I can’t get enough of a red lipstick. I wore comfortable warm boots and of course I brought my warmest coat- a North Face and luckily so because it started raining at the end of the first quarter.
When we attend games solo we hardly tailgate, because it’s usually more enjoyable with a large crowd. After the game, we were pretty hungry and wanted to catch some food quick before heading back home. The Giants play at MetLife stadium in New Jersey and after the game my husband and I went to Pizza Time which was less than 15 minutes away. It was time for the sunset prayer and they provided us a room for prayer which was so convenient. My husband and I each had a burger, and we split an order of hot wings and fries. Fast prompt service paired with tasty food and we were out of there within 30 minutes (including prayer) which was great because we wanted to beat Sunday night traffic back to the city.
