Take the Train to New Jersey for a New York Giants Game at MetLife Stadium

I grew up in Maryland and I will always be a Baltimore Ravens fan when it comes to football, but since my boyfriend is a New York Giants fan I’ll also root for them—as long as they’re not playing the Ravens. This season, we went to their home game against the Minnesota Vikings at MetLife Stadium. The stadium, located in Rutherford, NJ, is only a few stops away from Penn Station via New Jersey Transit rail. MetLife also hosts the New York Jets’ home games, a variety of concerts and other sporting events, like soccer games and wrestling matches. This year it will be home to Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2, 2014.

When we attended their game against the Vikings, the Giants ended their six-game losing streak much to the joy and relief of those in the stadium. The Giants’ loyal fans jumped to their feet, clapping and cheering as loudly as possible for each touchdown, defensive maneuver and offensive play.

To keep the crowd warm, happy and fed, MetLife offers a variety of food, hot drinks and cold beer. Their concessions even include kosher and gluten free options. My favorite is the Food Network stand’s spicy Buffalo Mac & Cheese.
