Handwarmers, that is.
Chris's brother got us free tickets to the Redskins/Giants game today, so off we went at 7:15 am to meet up with everyone.I layered significantly before we left. We tailgated from the time the parking lot opened until game time. Robert has season tickets, so he's a pro. He made beer-soaked bratwurst, brought out his portable beer pong table (anyone else have any idea these existed?) and we braved the rain.
Our tailgating neighbors shared some delicious hot chocolate and turkey soup with us, as well as some of their shelter from the elements.
The day started out promising. I stayed pretty dry and warm during the hours of tailgating, and the game was Sean Taylor's induction into the Redskin's hall of fame. Unfortunately the game didn't end so well. The skins played pretty poorly and I was soaked completely through despite all of my layers. My feet and hands and pretty much entire body was freezing, but it was quite the experience!This was my first skins game.. so I guess it can only get better from here. I'm hoping for a win and no rain for whenever I go to another.
