While I appreciate the encouragement, some times the rules change for the sanctity of the house in which I live. At least it's not the playoffs, then my wife knows I'd be missing parties.
Sounds like a perfect opportunity to teach your kid the love of football. Tell your wife your raising him up right to be a STEELER. I know it's not going to work. Can't they put the game on at the party, and you watch the kid in the room with the game? Teach your children in the way they should go. Good luck man.
