The 411: Michael’s Football Season Hot Picks

There’s nothing quite like watching a live football game: the sights, the sounds, the electricity and excitement in the air. But really, my favorite place to watch a game is not in the stands—it’s on my couch, remote control in hand and snacks within arm’s reach. And since football season has just begun, I thought this month’s picks should include some of my game-day-watching must-haves:

MSX by Michael Strahan Joggers: Being comfortable is key when you’re watching football (televised games can run up to four hours), so my go-to outfit always includes a pair of relaxed pants, like my MSX by Michael Strahan joggers (I like the black camo pair best).

Cigars: I do love to indulge in a cigar but only on really special occasions. And some games—like the playoffs and the Big Show itself—are definitely cigar-worthy. Gurkha Heritage cigars are some of my favorites.

Giants JerseyCall me superstitious, but even when my former team isn’t playing, I like to wear official Giants gear when I watch football. I sometimes slip on my old jersey and watch the game. Nothing like wearing  a jersey of your favorite player. If it’s Odell Beckham Jr, Eli Manning or any other players jersey you can’t go wrong.

Chirping Chicken Chicken WingsNothing goes together better than football and chicken wings. And the large grilled BBQ wings with French fries (don’t tell La) from Chirping Chicken really make me happy (and they deliver in N.Y.C., too!).
