    My youngest is going to present The War Department and me with a new grand baby. (Due Christmas Eve)
    So; naturally, they choose the opening day of college football to hold a "Reveal" party.
    We'll find out today whether it's a boy or a girl.

    Ah, sorry, I was hooked in by the topic title. When you said football, I thought you meant football, you know, like we mean in the rest of the world?

    Joking aside, hearty congratulations.

    I think in the case it's OK to interupt a football game. Congrats to the couple and geandparents.

    Congrats, but ... I know you are in Alabama like me. Pretty sure there is a law against non football plans on opening weekend.

    Somehow I don't think Lawrence would have had such a problem with the party if he meant "that football"!!!!!

    And congrats Lawrence!!!

    Congratulations, Lawrence!! Funny, but since moving from the US a few years ago when I saw "football" I immediately thought of soccer--specifically the EPL on Saturdays! So, I'm with peterpiperuk (cool name) on this one! Think I'm losing my hold on US culture here.....

    Congratulations !!! The reward of being a parent is that you get to be a grandparent (eventually). Take my word, it's a lot easier to be the grandparent.
