If you look good, you'll play good.
Sure, the Turkey Bowl is all about having fun with friends and family before your Thanksgiving feast. Then again, as a competitive athlete, you know that losing, quite frankly, ain't no fun.
That old mesh jersey just won't cut it for combating the elements. And nobody will mistake you for Megatron, so spare yourself the humiliation and leave the Calvin Johnson jersey at home.
Instead, step your game up and protect yourself from the cold in the Nike Shield Nailhead Full Zip Hoodie. This Turkey Bowl essential features insulated fabric and water-shedding technology to lock in heat and keep you dry for the game.
An adjustable hood provides extra coverage for your head and neck, and kangaroo pockets keep your hands warm between plays. The brushed interior of the Nailhead hoodie has an extra-soft feel inside, and the ribbed cuffs and hem are designed to keep the cold out.
As for the style, the fabric's subtle nailhead design—a small dot pattern over solid background color—gives this hoodie a distinct look, so you're sure to stand out, regardless of how good (or bad) you perform on the field.
We know what you're thinking: "why wear my brand-new Nailhead hoodie when it's going to get caked in mud?" For one, this is performance gear, people (look good, play good, remember?). Second, the Nailhead's Therma-Fit fabric is 100 percent polyester. Simply toss it in the washing machine to remove all the dirt, sweat (and tears?) it absorbed during the Turkey Bowl, bringing back that brand-new look and feel.
For all you ultimate team players out there, go ahead and sling that mesh team jersey over the Nailhead hoodie. You may compromise your style, but your performance will zoom to an all-time high.
