Heading to Super Bowl 2014 on February 2? Former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan has a new video out with few tips on how to dress for the very cold weather that you will be enjoying, or not enjoying, while you watch the game at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
Strahan stresses in the video, "Winter Fashion Tips for Super Bowl XLVIII" that layers are the way to go on game day. That means a thermal shirt, sweater or sweatshirt, a scarf and a coat with a hood. Not really fashionable, but as long as you're warm, that's all that matters.
Thermal underwear (otherwise known as "long johns") worn under jeans will keep you extra warm. You'll also need a warm hat (find a good selection of Super Bowl XLVIII hats here) and heavy socks.
Strahan states that winter boots are another must-have if you're headed to MetLife Stadium. If you live in warm climate and don't have boots, it's best to shop online for a pair before you take the trip to New Jersey. Many local stores have very limited stock when it comes to winter gear since it's been brutally cold this winter.
Here are some ideas for cold weather gear that will keep you warm during the Broncos - Seahawks game:
- NFL Authentic Seattle Seahawks Team Knit Scarf - $22
- NFL Super Bowl XLVIII Logo Cuffed Knit Hat - $19.99
- NFL Authentic Denver Broncos Team Knit Scarf - $24.98
- Seahawks or Broncos Fleece Hoodies - $19.99 and up
- The North Face Denali Gloves - $21.99
A blanket? Great idea! Get this Super Bowl XLVIII Dueling Broncos Vs Seahawks Throw Blanket and stay extra toast in your seat (or on your couch if you're watching the game at home).

What will the weather be like this year on Super Bowl Sunday? Count on it to be very cold, although it's a toss up as to whether it will snow that day.
Last year, it snowed on February 2, although it was only about an inch or so in the area of MetLife Stadium.
For now, Live Weather Blog meteorologists are predicting no snow with a high of 38 and a low of 24. If you've lived in the Northeast for any length of time, you'll know the forecast changes constantly, so it's best to be prepared.
