HOMEGATING – The act of hanging out with friends while watching a sporting event. The concept is simple – great sports, great friends and great food.
My husband and I are pro homgaters…we love spending our Sundays watching football from the comfort of our couch. As Patriot’s fans living in Connecticut, getting to the game isn’t always easy – the stadium is about 2 hours away. So more often than not, we resort to watching the game from home. There are a few reasons why homegating can be just as fun as heading to the stadium! First, it’s cheaper. Save on tickets, gas and expensive stadium food by staying home. Second, you can’t beat the view. Unless you’ve got great seats on the 50 yeard line, it’s likely your view will be better on the big screen. Lastly, home games in New England can get pretty chilly as the season goes on. Why battle the elements when you can stay cozy at home? I’m by no means discouraging a trip to the game…but if you can’t make it work, homegating is the next best option.
