Stadium BlanketsIt’s time to break out the stadium blankets! Football season is in high gear and that means the weather is starting to get a little chilly for those Friday Night Lights. Going to the football game is a fine Fall tradition for so many people.  The major league baseball season is just winding up and it may get cold at the games.  Soccer games are afoot and you don’t want to miss any of the action just because it might be cold outside.

I love the feeling of the cold breeze in my hair as I cheer on my favorite team. But when the cold air gets a little too cold, I want to wrap up in a cozy stadium blanket and keep on enjoying the game.

Stadium blankets used to be just light to medium blankets in school colors. Other stadium blankets were these huge blankets, roomy enough to wrap a couple nearly from head to toe. Many are still made of wool today, which is great if you live in the colder regions way North from me. Stadium blankets today come in a big variety of patterns, colors, weights and materials. There are stadium blankets for everyone!

What makes a stadium blanket different from any other blanket? Well, these days the most important characteristic of a good stadium blanket is that it will hold up to all kinds of weather. It doesn’t snow where I live, but a waterproof stadium blanket is still a good idea for those evening sea breeze rain showers and snow flurries.

You also want the material to be strong enough to handle old wooden bleachers and not get torn up and still deal with those cold metal bleachers with screws, bolts and other things that could catch on your blanket.

Am I making it sound like you need a big canvas tarp? No, not at all. There are lots of fun, cozy all weather stadium blankets just perfect for you to take to the football game. Let me show you a selection just to get you started.

There are also these great three-in-one rain ponchos that I like. They are a stadium seat, rain poncho or a stadium blanket all in one. Pretty cool, right? They’re fleece lined and you’ll love them for picnics, tail-gating, sports events and really any outdoor activity where you want to keep warm and dry.
