...Actually it's the first time ever that the Big Game -- football's enormous game -- has come to New York/New Jersey and we are so excited.
Thanks to my good friends at Duane Reade and #Collective Bias I had the opportunity to have two extraordinary Big Game experiences. I thought that January was going to be a quiet month, but it was anything but.
There weren't many things that could have gotten me out of my warm house last Wednesday, but the invitation to be part of the Big Game festivities just a few subway stops away at Times Square got me bundled up and out the door. I had the opportunity to meet Rueben Randle of my beloved NY Giants. No, the Giants aren't in the Big Game this year, but I have every faith that next year beckons.
Rueben Randle, wide receiver for the NY Giants, ready to sign autographs. I've got my signed photo right next to my computer.
I was as happy as I look and Rueben Randle could not have been nicer.
While I was at the beautiful store I spent some time picking snacks for the Big Game day. It was not an easy choice, there were so many goodies to choose from.
My eye went to the candy, but the view of Times Square in the background was fabulous, too!
Mars is one of the sponsors of the Big Game and Snickers is one of my all-time favorite candy bars. My big problem was choosing which one to have on hand for snacking on Sunday -- classic, almond or dark chocolate. Yes, you know the answer to that problem. I chose all three kinds of delicious Snickers. Can't have too many snacks -- or too many Snickers! --for the Big Game.
We've really got Big Game excitement in New York City and I am so happy to be part of the football fun. Can't thank my Duane Reade friends enough for this opportunity. One way to share in the fun is to go to the #DRBigGame website for great pictures of all of the excitement. I'll be posting more of my pictures there in the next few days. It's a terrific way to be part of the experience. There's even more excitement to come, but that's a post for another day.
As always, thanks for visiting. Take good care and keep warm!
