The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

The NFL kicks off a new season and we’re all excited about OUR team and the chances of going to the BIG GAME at the end of the season. In a lot of households throughout the country, you have everyone in the family rooting for the same football team, but in some cases, there are mixed marriages…so that’s what The Mike & Carla Morning Show wanted to know this morning! If you are in that relationship where you root for one team and your significant other roots for the other team, how does that workout come game time?

According to some of the calls M&C got this morning and a few of the texts, it can get pretty heated during the season. But before we get to that…who is America’s Team right now? According to a recent survey, the Dallas Cowboys are still on top, but only by a slim margin! The Cowboys only got 9% of the vote followed by the Chicago Bears! After that, it’s Green Bay tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers! San Francisco and the New York Giants round out the Top 5.

And believe it or not, only about 10% of fans actually plan on attending a game this season! Pretty crazy, but those are the facts! Now, let’s get back to what happens in your house when your team plays a team that your significant other roots for…listen to some of the calls that game in this morning. To be honest, more women called in with their passion for their teams than the guys which can be a little scary at times.

No matter what the situation, M&C did find out that the football season brings out the “fan” in all of us no matter what team we root for, but here in Las Vegas, needless to say that we all hope for a great season for our Las Vegas Raiders!

Here’s the actual segment from this morning…sit back, listen and enjoy!

So, to help make sure you’re ready for kickoff we’ve put together a list of NFL game day must haves. Everything from tailgating essentials to at-home viewing party needs we’ve got you covered.

  • 45-Can Insulated Cooler

    They say go big or go home. And whether you’re tailgating at the stadium or watching from the comfort of your couch, you’re probably going to be drinking something. A cooler is first and easily one of the most important gamday must haves. This cooler can hold up to 45 12-ounce cans with a versatile design that allows you to collapse it flat while not in use. So, stock up on your game day food and bevies and keep everything ice cold!

  • Beverage Koozie

    Speaking of keeping it cold, don’t you just hate when your hands get cold while you’re drinking a beer. Or how your temperature while actually warm up the beer a little faster? These insulated Koozie’s are the solution. This 3-in-1 steel container can be used as a tumbler, a bottle holder, or a tall boy can. 

  • Triple Slot Slow Cooker

    You and I both know game day means eating some of the best food of the whole year. Game day is the perfect time to bust out the nacho cheese, buffalo chicken dip, sloppy joes…  jeez, I’m making myself hungry! Whether you’re at the tailgate or at home with your friends, having a slow cooker to prep and keep your game day food warm is a must. This one has three different slots so you can have multiple warm yummy things ready to go as you wait for kickoff.

  • Universal Remote

    Don’t laugh at this one because I’m dead serious when I say we one time couldn’t find our TV remote in our living room for an hour past the start time. A universal remote as a backup could be your lifesaver in this situation. This one works on everything from Samsung and Sony TV to even for Roku players.

  • Pop-Up Canopy Tent

    Heading down to the stadium? You’re going to want one of these. If you’ve been to a tailgate before you’ll know that these bad boys can be crucial for getting out of the hot sun or finding shelter during a down pour. Taking one of these with you is never a bad call. This pop-up canopy is an easy one-person setup with adjustable steel legs so you can determine the height you want. 

  • Soundbar

    Wanna experience the game in a way that actually makes you feel like you’re there? Here you go! A soundbar is an awesome addition to any man cave. Not only will it help amplify the sound so you never have to rewind for not hearing a call, but it will make your viewing experience that much better. This goes for more than just watching games. We love having our soundbar for movies too. It makes the whole experience that much more exciting.

  • TV Trays

    While you’re at home enjoying the game you’re gonna need a place to hold your beer and your food. TV trays are my go-to for this! We didn’t like having a coffee table that just constantly got cluttered with all of our junk. So we switched to TV trays. This one is great because it’s an easy sliding tray. It can hold up to 40 pounds so stock up on all the food and drinks you want! It even has a convenient cupholder on the side.

  • Portable Rocking Chairs

    Here’s a tailgate or backyard game day must have that you’re going to love. As much as I don’t mind the standard camping chair, I prefer to tailgate in style. This portable rocking chair is exactly that. These are easy to carry and set up, plus they’re more comfortable than your average game day chair. This is also a great seating option for those who are relegated to the garage during game days.

  • Blanket Hoodie

    Don’t knock it ‘til you try it folks. I love watching football at home, and as the weather starts to get cooler, we’ll have our windows open more often. That sometimes means I need a blanket. For all of you who enjoy being warm while watching the game, I present to you The COMFY.

    This has made waves on TikTok in the last several months and after having bought one myself I can say that it’s a perfect choice for game day. It’s got a pocket and allows you to move around more freely than most blankets. Plus, this could be great for those whose tailgates start at 7am when the dew is still on the ground.

    Is it really football season if you’re not playing cornhole? At-home parties and tailgates alike will love having cornhole as part of their pregame festivities. And for all of you staying at home, you can have knock out a few rounds during halftime.

    Now, this might just be the best thing on this list. We’ve all had to sit on a cold bleacher more than once. And if you’re stadium allows you to bring this in, it’s going to be a game-changer. This heated stadium seat gives you that much-needed back support along with cupholders and heat! Seriously, I’m adding this to my cart right now because I can’t go without it.
