I am a huge football fan. When football ends in February I mourn the season until Spring Training begins for baseball. On Sundays I am usually in front of the TV watching the games, screaming, making calls, cussing while cooking, blogging and/or ironing clothes for the family.
Having the Super Bowl in NYC this year has been awesome so far! This is the first time I have experienced the big game being local and NYC has certainly out done themselves this time!
Super Bowl Boulevard
NYC and the NFL have teamed up to create Super Bowl Boulevard, imagine a really big County fair except it is centered around football.
Since the Boulevard is right outside my job I couldn’t wait to get out there and explore. The most popular attraction was the Tobbagin. I have never heard of a Tobbagin until I saw one with my own two eyes.
This thing is 60 feet in the air folks! I mean, crazy! Yes it’s a fun slide–but how fun can it be when it’s 15 degrees outside?! I mean it was so cold I was jumping into various stores just to get feeling back in my digits! Getting on a slide 60 feet in the air was not on the agenda.
I met my hubby at his job and we walked around a bit and visited the various tents. We first stopped at the M&M/Snickers booth where we stopped to take a pic with the yellow M&M!
Then we walked down deeper into Times Square and explored some more of the fun. There were some really great photo ops all over the place!
Then I walked down to see the Lombardi trophy. I really wanted to get a picture but the lines were the longest ever! I got as close as could to get a picture from afar. I can at least say I saw it in person!
As you headed downtown this was where all the kids got to have fun! I would have loved to bring my kids but there was that little issue of the weather. This cold is not meant for anyone! Child, adult, the bitter cold was hard to take!
I actually had a great time despite the cold weather. Mother Nature could have been kinder but it’s winter in NYC, I’d better get over it.
Last but not least I have a quick (2 minute!!) Vlog covering some of my favorite moments of Super Bowl Boulevard! Enjoy!
