On my search for a new gadget, I came across this Bosch Heated Jacket. It has three warming core heat zones, 2 chest zones and 1 back zone. And a three level heat controller (high, medium and low) for up to 6 hours of heated run time. Nice.
Now I do realize that it’s a little pricey at $180 bucks but really, don’t we all wish we had one? For football games, or post-season baseball, working outside in the freezing cold weather, ice fishing…well, if anyone goes ice fishing this would totally come in handy.
I only wish I found this sooner, like BEFORE I went to the outdoor hockey game at Yankee Stadium. This was the first time that a hockey game was played at the new Yankee Stadium. The New York Rangers were playing the New Jersey Devils. Although I’m not a huge hockey fan, it’s fun enough, especially if I get to go to Yankee Stadium to watch it.
But of course, it was a horribly cold day in New York, like 5 degrees for a high. The game was awesome though, lots of action and high scoring, a total of 10 goals combined. So at least there was enough excitement to take our mind off of the fact that we couldn’t feel our feet very much.
I also have to mention that Bruce Springsteen’s good friend Southside Johnny came out at the end of the 2nd period to sing his hit song “We’re Having a Party”. It was a total surprise, no one knew he was going to be there.
Yes, I have been waiting for some time now to fit Bruce Springsteen’s name in one of my posts being the huge Bruce Fan that I am.
Like I said, I am from Jersey.
But even though I was well prepared for the weather after the 3rd period came to an end the snow starting coming down and the temperature dropped a couple more degrees. I would have tackled someone for this heated jacket if I saw it on them. It was COLD.
But it’s all about the experience, right?
We did work our way into the NYY Steak House to thaw out afterwards with a few martini’s and some fried oysters.
You’ve got to tough it out to get to the good stuff.
