This Sunday the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will face off at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. (full disclosure: I just Googled that to make sure). Besides being the best thing that’s happened to New Jersey since the Jersey Shore being canceled, this also means that we, ladies, have the opportunity to spend the afternoon in a room with a captive male audience. Oh, you actually came to watch the game? I’m actually here for the finger food and legitimate reason for pushing snooze on Monday morning.
My dad often texts me about football games and I attempt to give spirited responses because I know he cares… but sadly, I do not. I’m not like a football hater and I might care a little more if a team relevant to me was playing (Steelers, Giants), but I kind of don’t care either way. It’s the same way I feel about tofu. Meh. Without question, you will never see me in a bar wearing a football jersey. Or face paint. Though, Miley’s got me a little more interested in foam fingers as of late. I’m probably not friends with anyone wearing any of the aforementioned sports paraphernalia either, but I’m sure there are some exceptions. Like an actual football player. But alas, I do understand the need to show a little team spirt- I was cheerleading captain for heaven’s sake. Clever little ladies can achieve a sporty chic look by wearing a pop of their team’s color in slouchy sweatshirts, colorful kicks, or mini t-shirts boasting the teams logo. And denim is always a good look.

But, if you’re anything like me and you could care less about either team and are betting only on running out of salsa before chips, then you may want to just stick to the home (New York) team uniform. All black everything. Not only will you still look slim after housing a plate of nachos, you also won’t look like an a-hole wearing the losing team’s color postgame– which really makes you the winner, now doesn’t it?
