    You only have one chance to be there for your son. This is that chance. Football and the Dolphins will always be there on TV.
    But you'll never get a chance to make it up to your son if he thinks you picked a football game over him.

    Spend it with him, not with a tv that cares less if you live or die.
    Ask me about the Miami Dolphins "Game of the Week" during the offseason.

    Miami Dolphins DVD Video Library
    Now hosting Miami Dolphins games on DVD including the games like
    '85 Bears game, Fake Spike game, and the '94 shoot out vs Patriots!!

    Games available for your iPhone and iPod Touch!

Tickets are for opening game, so I had to make a tough decision, and now I will be at the Linc 1pm on Sunday.
    I turned away Giants tickets to watch the Fins on TV

    I just can't believe they would have the games during the NFL games. Can't you have all the parents and coaches get together and work something out? Did the moms schedule this What about Sirius radio or something? I don't subscribe to any radio stuff or know much about it but I thought they offered NFL games. Maybe you could get the game on some kind of portable device (I can't keep up with them these days)

    man, it wasn't your fault. <hug>

    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.
