The Meadowlands: Home of the New York Giants

2

Out in the Meadowlands of New Jersey is MetLife Stadium, home of New York football. The Giants are my team and whenever I get a chance to see them play and I am a ready to go with my fan gear, my stadium blanket, and my LC-A+.

In a city like New York there is no lack of sports teams to follow. My personal favorite is the New York Giants and I have been a fan ever since I moved to NY. I tune in every Sunday in support of my team but there is nothing like going to a real game and watching them play. I lucked out this season by getting tickets through stubhub.com the morning of the game against the Miami Dolphins. It is a risky gamble to wait so late to procure tickets but it can pay off and you may be able to get a good deal. Interesting note: the sun sets behind the 320-330s section of the stadium and it can get pretty chilly once you are no longer in the sun.

Once you have your tickets lined up you have to figure how to get to the game. Even though they are a New York team the Giants play at MetLIfe Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. They share the facility with the NY Jets and take turns hosting home games. The MTA makes getting to the stadium pretty easy by taking the PATH train or NJ Transit.

At any given game you will get the spectrum of characters. We were lucky enough to have a guy in full blue long johns and giants logo cape pumping up our section. And of course the colorful commentary yelled at the field is always entertaining. Obviously a game where they win (which they did!) is always better, but as long are you are with friends and willing to get into the spirit, a day spent out at the Meadowlands is a day well spent.
