Cold Weather Football Advice

I won’t be at the game, but I would like to give fellow Bruins some advice regarding attending a football game in very cold weather.

Having seen quite a few football games in freezing or near freezing weather and having lived in Chicago for 10 years, this is what I recommend.

Dress much warmer that you think you would need to because its not how you feel when you first go outside but how you will feel in 2 to 3 hours.

Most Californians don’t understand that you can lose a lot of body heat over a couple of hours outdoors, even though when you first go out you feel quite warm.

Wear lots of layers (e.g., turtle neck shirts and sweaters) and cover your head, ears, and neck (e.g., ski caps and scarf). Cover yourself with a very warm coat, preferable down.

Also, make sure to have a very warm set of gloves and warm boots. If you don’t have boots, double up on the socks and loosen your shoes. Tight shoes in the cold weather constricts blood flow and will make your feet very cold.

I also strongly recommend long johns. Pajamas pants worn under jeans will do if you can’t find a pair of long johns.

In addition, I recommend using a seating pad. You can lose a lot of heat sitting on a cold bench or stadium seat.

Last, take one or two blankets to cover your legs or sit on.

Have fun. Wish I was going.

GO BRUINS!!
