LIVE from Super Bowl Boulevard 2014 in NYC! {Pictures & Vlog}


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!



They even had a free field goal try with a great goal post. I would have tried and all there was only the little issue of me freezing my tail off.IMG_1481

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!

  3. Okay, I’m normally not totally jealous that you live in awesome NYC (this is a lie, I am totally jealous…always) but this has sent me right over the edge!! THIS…IS…SO…AWESOME!!! I love all of the different things here. And seeing your little head on the fully padded Broncos football body was priceless!! (and I’m so glad that it wasn’t #18. I am the planet’s only non Peyton Manning fan. Blech) GO Seahawks!! 😀 –Lisa

  8. WOW!! What a “super” fun experience! I think NYC knows how to do things up right!!! I’m bummed for you that it was so cold – wish it would have been a little warmer so you would have been able to try some of the fun stuff!

  9. Oh, what fun! I’d love to have BlogHer around these parts one day. It’s exciting when something you love is close by,
    The Tobbagin? Looks amazing. I would probably wimp out in front of all of those people, though. That one woman is calm enough to have her phone out while on the slide! Maybe recording it.
    I’m home now and it’s not so cold here! I guess I missed some icy temperatures. Oh, darn!

  20. I’m impressed! Not being far from NYC, had I know I would have made it a point to go visit and see the sights. Not a huge football fan, but I do tag along with the hubster to our seasonal seats. Nice to meet you, found you through lovely Tamara. Happy Super Bowling!

  21. I’m so excited for the Super Bowl! I love football that much too, Nellie! We are Cowboys fans but I love to watch the Super Bowl even when we don’t get there. Today we’re going to a big party in our complex. Should be fun with good food, and big screen TVs. I was so excited about everything you were talking about in here…I was telling my hubby as I was reading lol. Everything looks so fun. I love the city. I used to always enjoy going there when I lived in Jersey. :)
