It’s a lot of fun cheering for your football playing kids. The only real trouble you’ll run into is dealing with the brisk winds and cold air temperatures that are a part of football season. Don’t forget that a ready football mom is a happy and toasty warm football fan. Check out these tips to make sure your next outing to your kid’s football game will be a comfortable one.
A Body in Motion Tends to Stay Warm
When it’s cold out the best thing you can do is keep moving. Get on your feet and constantly move around while you cheer your team on. Sitting in your chair makes you an easy target for chilly winds and your body temperature stays low from lack of activity. Let’s be realistic, too. You’re at the game to cheer the kids on. What better way to do that than to by getting on your feet, putting your hands together, and getting loud? That’s what being the “12th man” is all about!
Layer up for Maximum Protection
You probably remember when you were young your mom would bundle you up with lots of layers of clothing on cold days. As always, mom knew best! Layers of clothing are the perfect way to prevent Old Man Winter (or even an extra-chilly Fall night) from wreaking havoc on your body temperature. These days, there are many undergarments that are designed specifically to give a thermal boost. Get some and you’ll never shiver at any football games this season.
Football and Warm Beverages Go Hand in Hand
Chilly nights and hot drinks are a match made in heaven. A toasty beverage serves dual purposes. The warmth heats up your hands, which provides immediate relief from the chill. Perhaps even better, the beverage heats you up from the inside as you consume it! Tea, coffee, or any other heated concoction is the perfect addition to your stadium trip.
Bring a Blanket and Battle the Elements
Sure, you’ll probably feel like a dork lugging your blanket from the car to your stadium seat. That’s only natural. When the temperatures drop and the wind starts whipping in, any misgivings you have will magically disappear. A blanket is one of the oldest and most effective items anyone can use to warm up when it’s cold out. Since you’re actually outside and battling the elements, it will do wonders for your body temperature and your disposition.
