Okay, so the last 8 years have been the same .... Michigan football every Saturday .... without a hitch. It's been ... like a ritual you know. Well, my son has been involved in soccer the last few years, and since he was so young his games were the early games 8 and 9 am, home by 10:30 or 11.. Now he's turning 8, and his age division plays double headers between noon and 4 pm .... game times vary ... and yes, it's every Saturday. The issue I have is that he's not very good at soccer, and really could care less if he plays or not. But, his mother ... my wife ... is pretty adamant about me not missing any of his games.
This is kind of leaving a sick feeling in my stomach .... on one hand I feel bad, as I shouldn't miss my son's games, but on the other hand ... he doesn't even care about the sport he is playing.
I have to assume many other die hards run into the same dilemma, especially those who have kids that play rocket football on Saturday afternoons.
What do you do in these situations?? Miss every game? That would frickin blow ... What do I do, and how do I get out of going to all of his games without being killed by my wife?
Please help .... a fan in need.
