What's the optimal way to dress before I go root for my favorite sports team in the cold for three hours?

I went to the NHL Stadium Series game at Yankee Stadium this past Wednesday, which was a great experience, the final score aside. The only other problem? It was cold, and I was unprepared. I'd like to avoid that in the future.
I've also been to a few Giants games, and try as I might, I've never struck the right balance of warmth and bulk; either I'm too cold or I have so many layers on that moving around is not easy.
I figure there must be some members of the hive mind who do this sort of thing somewhat regularly. Do you have Bears or Packers or Bills season tickets? Have you been to every Winter Classic? Does your alma mater play its games in cold climates? You probably have good ideas about this sort of thing, and I'd like to know what they are.
When I've been outdoors in the cold for extended periods of time, I'm usually moving around somewhat–hiking, playing football, and so on. Ideally, I'd like to stay warm, not have sore extremities by the end, and be able to move around reasonably well. Bonus points if I can get a jersey on over this ensemble.
Do you have layering strategies, product recommendations, or a combination of the two? If so, I am all ears!
