NY Giants

I want to start by saying how unnatural it is for me to write about football, but in fitting with the theme of sticking out like a sore thumb, I am just going to go with it.
On our second to last day in NY, Troy, Jon, Doug and I ventured from Manhattan to Jersey to watch the NY Giants play the Pittsburgh Steelers... the tailgating was OUT OF CONTROL as you can see from the below picture. It was a sea of blue, red and Denver Hayes... I rolled in wearing a leopard print sweater and grey skinny jeans...  the only red thing I had on me was my Starbucks cup. Awkward. 
We were getting some serious stares from the locals who had all the comforts of home in their designated parking space- beer, sausages, propane tanks, chips, chairs, music.. so major, and so quickly bought some toques from a vendor in order to be a little more discreet. 

By the end of the game I went with the full Monty of Giants gear in order to fend off the minus 50 wind chill that I was feeling as we sat and watched the Steelers win the game. It was a crazy day and pretty neat to see New Yorkers screaming and fighting (literally) for their beloved Giants. 

Below is the progression of my outfits... 

Tailgating... you really have to see it to believe it
#tourists... I think Troy actually said to me, "You have to get rid of that cup!" 
Giants toques: check! 

Down on the field watching the Steelers warm up- this was really neat!

National Anthem was sung by Megan Hilty from one of my shows, Smash  

Got the blanket and jacket... still cold. 

Enter gloves! 

And then just straight up cuddling with Doug to keep warm... what a day!
