    4pm sounds like the plan for many....that's what I was thinking too.

    I'm not worried about the cold...I'm more concerned with the 3rd quarter ending at midnight.

    will they let you in that early? I thought they were enforcing the 5 hour rule this year. If kickoff is 8:20, will they let you in before 3:20ish?

    Going to get there around 8:15 will probably get to the seats around 8:40 or so. Will probably leave around 8 minute mark of the third quarter if the game is close. If its a blow out we will be gone by halftime. At least thats the consensus of the 23 people I go with.

    [QUOTE=crasherino;3426263]I'm currently in negotiations with my wife. Its my niece/nephews joint birthday on Sunday (rescheduled from the snow storm a couple of weeks ago). How important is it for an uncle to be at a kids birthday party? They won't even know I'm not there, right? Unfortunately, I don't really have an ally in my bro-in-law....he doesn't quite get the whole "going to the game and getting there 5 hours before" thing.

    I'm not sure if my regular crew is going all out for this one, so I'm not going to play all my cards until I know whats up. If its game on for the tailgate, I expect to be there at 4:30/5. If not, I'll probably just get there around 7, have a beer or two with some other folks, and win some family points.[/QUOTE]

    family points get you nothing....don't mean to change the subject but....you think next family affair you'll be able to say "I'm not going because I went to Johnny's 3rd birthday six months ago." Unfortunately, you're doomed like the rest of us.;)

    You're absolutely right with regard to the family. They think I'm a degenerate football fan and gambler no matter what. But my wife is a pretty cool chick. If I spin it that I'm missing the tailgate in favor of the birthday party (if/when the tailgate doesn't materialize), I'll get points from her, and she is my only real concern anyway.

    My father, uncle and I went to the Jets/Patriots Playoff game back in January 86...4 PM start and my sisters sweet 16 party was at 8...we were late to the party, but we made it...

    And no one got divorced or killed over it...At least my family knows where they stand when it comes to birthdays and the Jets...

    I asked this same question a long while back. the best answer I got was the slingbox option (I think).

    Btw, when I started reading your thread, I thought you were going to hit someone up for booze.
