Thrilled that the polar vortex will not be a factor for the 2014 Super Bowl, fans from around the world have converged on the New York City Metro area just days before Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with team distinction. The layers with the team jersey are definitely the look of choice. East Rutherford, NJ will be ready for the game and hope all the super fans will be prepared for the elements of winter as well. Concern for being fashionable has not been lost to fans converging on the Super Bowl.
Team spirit will be evident by wearing your team colors and authentic team apparel.
The key to team spirit is to wear at least one branded item, noting the more you add the more team bravado is accentuated. If you have five or more team branded items, you join the category of super fan. Here are the levels for team spirit.

What is your Super Bowl style?
Preparing for the Super Bowl in cold weather, start with the insulating factor. This means thermal undergarments. If possible build in a few layers and be sure the outer layer has a wind proof cover. Gloves are a must too.
Be ready for inclement weather, since the game will be played outside. This is how football was meant to be played. The key is a layering, don’t get too hot and be sure to wear a hat. Over 70 percent of body heat is lost when a chapeau is not worn, so please wear a hat.
A word of warning, the reason for concern is to keep everyone safe and warm during this football-sporting extravaganza. The threat of frostbite can occur and once it does, you will be prone to frostbite the rest of your life. So take care to prevent this.
So remember to have a great time and make the event as fun for all those around you as you cheer on your favorite team. May the best team win and may all the fans show team spirit.
