While some NFL fans will purchase season tickets to take in the action in person, countless others will enjoy the excitement from the confines of their own home.
As men across the U.S. make initial preparations for a sports sanctuary to entertain their friends as they watch the action, here are five tips to help you transform a room in your home into a Football man cave.
When regular season NFL games finally kick off next month, chances are you won’t want to miss a second of the action, even to make a quick trip to the kitchen for snacks and beverages.
For this reason, a mini fridge is the perfect compliment for a football man cave.
Not only will you stay connected to the action, but you can also purchase a hands-free beer helmet to cut your trips to the mini fridge in half!
Adding a mini fridge to your man cave won’t deplete your funds either, as many models are available for under $60!
Most of the 32 teams in the NFL play on Sundays, making viewing multiple games at once nearly impossible – unless you have a multi-screen setup like an obsessed Wall Street trader.
Luckily for sports enthusiasts like myself, companies such as Rise Ticker offer sleek ticker boxes for sports fans to stream live sports updates, 24 hours a day!
The plug-and-play units at Rise Ticker don’t require a computer connection to operate. By plugging the Ethernet cord attached to the ticker box into an Internet connection, you can control your message right from the half-inch-wide display case.
A sports ticker will surely set your man cave apart from the competition and make your home the perfect place to view NFL action.
Fathead (wall graphics)
Fathead wall graphics are the perfect way to pledge your allegiance to your favorite sports team.
Not only are these six-foot-tall wall graphics awesome compliments for the walls of your man cave, but you can also decorate your trinkets with Fathead skins to add a touch of personality to your personal items.
If you’re like me and consider yourself the ultimate sports fan, a Fathead Bighead of your favorite player will definitely make your friends envy your man cave.
From my experience as an HDTV salesman during my undergraduate years, I found that the LED HDTV is the best television on the market for viewing sporting events.
Zing! readers that read my article, “Saving Money by Creating a Home Theater,” are aware of the added advantages an LED HDTV provides.
Accordingly, if you’re in the market for a new television, I suggest the LED HDTV, as you may have a hard time trying to find an HDTV with better resolution, picture quality and size-to-weight ratio.
I know I mentioned the beer helmet in my mini fridge section above, but this invention is so cool, I decided it was only right to give the beer helmet a section of it’s own.
Here are my top three reasons your man cave should include a beer helmet:
- The football players are wearing a helmet, and you need one too.
- You can double fist, without actually double fisting.
- It’s a handless beer helmet… hello!
When your friends inevitably call you to inquire as to where you’re watching the game, make sure you can proudly reply “in my football man cave,” because you used some of the tips listed above!
