    Dolphins Game or Kids Game (Need advice)

    I need you guys help making the right decision.....Believe it or not I am torned.

    I coach a youth league team here in the city I live and my sons both play for the 2nd and 3rd grade team. I coach the 4th graders. BTW Keith Loneker is a coach on a rival team. He played for the Rams and the Falcons. Also in a bunch of movies to include "leatherheads"

    For some strange reason this league likes to play on Sundays. My boys play at 11:15 cst and my team plays at 12:15 cst.

    Now I have direct TV and I will be recording the game, but I know someone is going to let the score slip prior to me watching it.

    I know this might sound easy to you guys....but what in the hell do I do?

    sometimes life gets in the way of football.. Like this sunday a very good friend of mine is having his son's 3rd birthday party from 1-4. Yea i know great timing!! but i will be at the party becasue that is what friends/family do. i will be taping the game as well. Its going to be hard to not find out a score but i will try and just watch the game when i get home.

    I'm sure your kids won't mind you staying home to watch it. After all, we're playing the green vermin, not the Falcons.

    A nice set of earplugs won't hurt....or maybe those headphones that the guys wear to guide the planes into the terminals If all else fails, wear a sign that says "If you tell me the score of the Dolphins-Jets game, I may be forced to thrash you"

    You made a committment to coach and be a father, you go to your kids' games. (That probably sounds more harsh than I meant it to. It's supposed to sound like advice, not condiscending.)

    Well said. Sure it will suck not seeing it live, but you're taping it. Good thing about that is you can rewind and rewatch any play you like over and over. Like I do with each preseason game to analyze players.

    Children are special, and these moments only last so long. Enjoy them.. there is a reward to selfessness.


    It takes discipline to not formulate opinions about something WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS.

    If you ask me he's 100% right bro. Go and spend time with your kids.

    Shouldn't be a hard decision really, these are your kids after all. But I have the same situation, my son's U10 soccer team has a game at 1pm (his 1st game of the season). So, I'll be the good Dad and watch, but will make constant trips to the car to listen to the game on Sirius. And his game lasts only an hour.

    Jets fans are like slinkies, not good for much, except they do bring a to your face when you push them down a flight a stairs.
