    Easy decision, go to your kids games and coach in yours. Tivo the phins. You may want to start every conversation you have with other adults with something like "I'm tivo'ing the dolphins game so please don't talk about it, Hi, nice to see you."

    or
    "If you mention the Dolphins game, your kid sits the bench"

    NOTHING takes the place of kids... Your family... I would go and watch the game on TiVO regardless if you know the outcome.

    I also coach youth sports and had a situation come up where I had to choose coaching my U15 basketball team in a tournement or go to my son's soccer playoff game in Corpus Christi.
    I coached basketball.

    Go to your kids game! Or you could buy tickets to the fins game and take your son. And years from now your son will say, "Dad, remember when you took me to see the Dolphins destroy Brett Favre and the stinkin' Jets? That was such a great day! You are the best dad in the whole wide world!!!"

    Wait I've got it!!!! Fertilize the field the night before the game and put up a sign saying "stay off"....then when the kids are disappointed that the game will have to be called off, suggest that it be played in your backyard and just have a tv easily accessible through a window or sliding glass door.....it's a win win situation for all!

    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.

    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?
