I made what I thought to be a very reasonable request tonight. The Wife seems to disagree. I know because she made a terrible face when I asked the question (note I didn't even demand it - I merely requested it). I'm chalking it up to the ol' pregnancy hormones - she'll be more reasonable after she has the baby.

The baby is coming soon - real soon. Which is why I made the request in the first place.

See, the due date is September 15. The Jets home opener is September 14. I requested permission to maybe attend the Jets home opener, and see Brett Favre's first home game as a Jet. Really, I'm the one putting myself in a bad position - I have school the next day.

But I'm forgetting the most important part. The baby is probably going to come early - our estimate has it coming in the next week or so. So I think it's quite reasonable that I head down to New York for a day a couple of weeks after the baby is born, provided someone comes and sits with The Wife and our older child for the day.

My suspicion is that The Wife enjoys the time we spend watching the DirecTV Sunday Ticket together and would be upset if I left her flat to go watch the Jets in person that day. In which case, I totally understand where she is coming from.

Otherwise, I can't imagine what the problem is. I welcome your comments.

A) Maybe THE WIFE is sick of hearing about Brett Favre. After his 2 month soap opera, she wouldn't be only one.

B) She's totally jealous that you are going to scenic New Jersey and she can't go.

C) She knows you'll probably wear a Chad Pennington jersey and you'll get beat up by some drunk from Queens.

D) Something about you leaving your family and the new baby...blah, blah, blah...typical woman stuff...

But I vote for....

E) This is her sneaky little plan to slowly pull the Johnnymets Family away from the Jets and turn you into a Patriots family. Face it dude: you're a year away from buying a Tom Brady "fathead" for your basement. Might as well give in now. You can't win.
