Next to beer and barbecuing, the next big tailgating activity is tossing a football around. And given the close proximity of cars belonging to hyped up gridiron fans, and your drunken inability to make a catch, the football of choice for many guys has been a NERF. Yeah, they’re made for kids, but you know you own one. And love it. Easy to grip, easy to throw and won’t damage that car when it sails through your buddy’s hands.
This week, I’m giving away a NERF tailgate sport pack to replace your old, torn up gear and keep the game rolling. It’s got the new NERF NFL Pro Grip that has a special texture to make throwing easier, a little more heft than the NERF you remember for longer throws, and more durable ends to help it survive a season of slamming into the asphalt. They come in your favorite team colors, and the one I’m giving away is from my world champion Giants.
Also in the pack is the NERF Vortex Mega Howler, a small ball with a tail designed to let you drop hundred yard bombs. It’s also got holes cut in the sides to make it whistle while in the air, alerting unsuspecting bystanders a ball is headed for their head. And it’s compact enough, and easy enough to throw, for your nephew to get into the game. Payton Manning’s “signature” is on the tail, which I’m pretty sure satisfies some NFL regulation that he appear everywhere and on everything.
Rounding out the pack are a couple of football related accessories only a superfan would love from Gamewear . There’s a pigskin cellphone case – complete with laces and team logo or player jersey number – to keep beer and mustard off your phone. The one I’m giving away has Tom Brady’s jersey number and “signature” on it. You can call him and ask him how that knee’s doing. There’s also an NFL Classic Wristband in the pack. It’s a football slice you can wear to show your team pride, or give to your girl to get her in the tailgate spirit. This one’s got the logo for the J-E-T-S on it.
