Photo by myself at Fairway, in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
A couple of Brooklynites stocked up at Fairway, a popular supermarket in Red Hook, this morning. In the background are two inflatable figures representing the New York Giants (right) and New England Patriots (left).
It's Superbowl Sunday, and to avoid the rush of fans stocking up, Mark and I went early to Fairway for groceries.
New York is filled with some diehard fans and many fair-weather fans, Mark and I included. People you never thought were interested in sports crawl of the woodwork whenever a team happens makes it to the playoffs. We will take excuse to sit on the sofa with a nice snack and a beer!
There were football references abound at Fairway this morning, near pre-made platters of food. All eyes will be focused on quarterback Eli Manning tonight. The game starts at 6:30 pm, EST.
