NFL-Grill-CoverYou probably don’t need an excuse to have a weekend barbecue, but a Sunday afternoon football game is a great one if you do. Make sure your grill’s ready for the big day with an official NFL grill cover in your favorite team’s logo and colors. The vinyl covers prevent rust and keep your grill station at the ready for burgers, hot dogs or anything else your hungry game-day crowd demands. Roomy enough to protect a family-size grill, the cover opens to a full 68 inches. Like Darrelle Revis on Julio Jones, this handsome grill accessory provides complete coverage.

NFL-Party-CupsEarly-season games are perfect for parties while the weather’s still warm. Keep your football crowd cool with icy drinks in stylish, shatter-resistant NFL cups. Big 20-ounce cups hold enough to last until halftime, and matching coasters protect your furniture. The dishwasher-safe cups are made of insulating polypropylene that won’t break or fade. Your team’s logo stays as bright and clean as your quarterback’s jersey when his front linemen do their jobs right.Why keep your team spirit to yourself when you could show everyone on your block how excited you are for football season?

NFL-BuntingsLine your balcony, porch or deck with these NFL decorations designed for indoor or outdoor use. Each nylon bunting measures more than 4 feet across at its top and has a trio of grommets to hold it in place no matter where you decide to hang it. While it looks great draped on a railing or hanging from eaves, it also makes an excellent indoor decoration for your next game-day party. If you’re a major fan, you don’t even need to wait for a party to fly your team’s colors; hang buntings behind your TV or on the walls of your rec room. For a boy or girl who’s a big football fan, it’s sturdy and colorful room decor.NFL football always makes our list of favorite things, and this season’s no exception. We think it’s all right to go a little wild in showing your team spirit. After all, the word “fan” comes from “fanatic,” so go ahead and promise to wear only black and gold on Sundays for the rest of the Saints’ season, or put that cheese wedge on your head in honor of your Packers. When it’s football season, that’s normal!
