Super Bowl 46 takes place a week from Sunday, and the Post reports that New Yorkers couldn't be more excited about buying Giants merchandise. How excited, exactly? Well, the manager of the Modell's in Times Square told the paper that yesterday, his sales were up 1,000 percent, with some shoppers arriving at 5am straight from the bars. Even Refinery29 is in on the action, rounding up ten red and blue looks that are a bit more stylish than the usual oversized jersey.
Of course, if you want to show your support without too much effort, you could always just go for a red-and-blue manicure. Just don't let anyone tell you to put the sparkles on your nails, unless you want the Giants to end up like the Green Bay Packers.
