When you’re moving to New York, there are plenty of exciting opportunities around. From the Mad Men lifestyle and buzz of the neon city, to its eclectic cultural diversity and abundance in opportunity, there’s so much to see, do, and explore. But with football season upon us, one thing is for certain, as a new New Yorker, it’s time to pick your new home team.

The New York Giants and the New York Jets. Not many cities sport a rivalry in the NFL, not to mention that they share a stadium. And while the two teams don’t often go head-to-head in games, don’t let the complacent “rivalry” fool you. Once a game is on, the ferocity of fans is tangible.

In 1988, the Giants battled the Jets in the last game of the season, but with a 27-21 loss, they never made it to the playoffs. However, revenge was theirs in 2011. The Giants defeated the Jets 29-14 which eventually led the team down the road to their Super Bowl XLVI win.

Whether you’re going to bleed green or blue, there’s no better way to feel connected to a new city than cheering on one of their home teams.
