NFL's Kickoff Today on 34th Street, aka "Retail Row"

You all know I'm an NFL fan, so this is music to my ears: today, from noon to 6:00pm, the NFL will be getting fans "Back to Football" by celebrating Kickoff Week with retailers on 34th Street, aka "Retail Row."

Joy! There's a lot going on, including:
  • New Era Scavenger Hunt
  • Player meet and greets (see below)
  • Photos with Vince Lombardi Trophy in Manhattan Mall
  • The ultimate Tailgate Tent at Party City 
  • "Get Fitted" with New Era's Football Cap Technicians
  • Giveaways at Kmart, including a 32" flat screen TV 
and the big one...
  • Enter to win tickets to the 2012 NFL Kickoff Concert featuring Mariah Carey and No Doubt at Rockefeller Center
Details on how to win tickets to the Kickoff Concert and the full schedule of events will be made available on facebook. Player highlights today include Santonio Holmes at Modell’s Sporting Goods from 4:00pm-5:00pm, and Antonio Pierce will be at the Verizon Wireless Store from 5:00pm-6:00pm.
Super Fan Station at Old Navy on 34th Street.

Can I just go on record for saying as far as I'm concerned, the NFL can adopt 34th Street as their official Retail Row every football season? Also, can there be something else going on next week? With the NFL 34th Street takeover, Fashion's Night Out, and the start of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, the calendar is a little full. Ah, September.
