I want to take my son and wife to a game with me this year...but my son is only 9 months old. Do you think it'll be too loud for him?

It's not just the fussing, first of all, where are you going to put his diaper bag and all the other shit you have to bring with you? And what if he gets hungry, is the Mrs going to bust out the milk cannons right in the stadium?

DaFace

That would put a lot of pressure on the people around you. They could be enjoying the game much differently than a family taking care of a baby. Even if it was the most peaceful child ever, you're still going to really piss off somebody around you.

I'd say too young. Take the answers for what they are and nothing more, the consensus is too young. Remember, on CP you have to act bigger and tougher than you really are in your responses.

You may not be asking for different treatment, but because a majority of KC fans are decent people they will feel compelled to act different.

BTW, having raised 3 children I can tell you that my assumptions are probably pretty good about what bringing a 9 month old kid to a Chiefs game is like.

I'm guessing that either the wife wants to leave him home and get a sitter and you're trying to find evidence that it's a good idea, or else you don't know anyone you trust to watch your kid. In that case, butter her up with some attention and do some extra things for her and go to the game with the guys.

No. No no no no. Fuck no. You'll ruin the kid's hearing. It's cumbersome to bring the baby stuff. Just hire a babysitter. Everything that's been said here. What is the Goddamn point of bringing a NINE-MONTH-OLD to an NFL game? Really.

It's like when I see people in Disney World with frigging newborns. But that at least you can excuse, saying, "Well, the vacation might've been planned, they can't leave the kid with a sitter for a week," etc.,. But a game is only a few hours long.

I don't understand why you would pay the price for the tickets and not stay. It's MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL.

People will be loud. People will be drunk. People will be REALLY LOUD and REALLY DRUNK. And the game doesn't start until 9:15. Even if you don't stay the entire game, that baby will be up late. And if you think he'll sleep during the game, let me remind you that IT'S GOING TO BE LOUD.

I have accidentally spilled beer on somebody before, but I'm trying really hard not to do it this time. Oops some of my chili dog just rolled under the seat. I'm going to boo the refs when they make a bad call. I'm going to shout an obscenity at some point.

Still not a good idea. I know you love your son, but a professional football game is not a suitable place to bring a baby.

I agree with DaFace (or whoever said it). If he's not old enough to remember it, then he's probably too young to go.

Did you forget where you're at?

There's so much pent up anxiety with Chiefs fans now that if it's any kind of game to where we're ahead you can bet it's gonna be loud. Maybe not '90's loud, but loud. It's been a while since they were on MNF as well. I'm thinking the fans will want to remind the rest of the country Arrowhead is still the loudest stadium in the NFL.

You're affecting other folks cause when they see there's an infant there they won't be screaming, hooting & hollering like normal cause they're afraid of possibly waking the youngster up or hurting their little ear drums.

Now if it was somewhere like Philly all bets are off. Midwest folks are a little more considerate.

I used to say 8 years old was optimal. This year, though, I had a friend call up with a bunch of free pre-season tickets, so I took my 7 and my 4.5 year old boys to their first game. They loved it and it was a good experience. They really got into making noise when the defense was on the field.

Of course, we had one jackass shouting way back behind us. My youngest seemed oblivious. However, a few days later my 7-year-old asked me about it while we were watching a Royals game. "Did you hear that guy behind us at the Chiefs game?" Me: "Yes." Him: "He was yelling mean things at the players and coaches, and using bad words." Me: "Did he sound smart?" Him: "No." Me: "Sound like anybody you would want to know?" Him: "No." Me: "Some people act like that. We just ignore them and enjoy the game." Him: "Yeah."

Honestly, it was worth the guy acting that way just for us to get to have the conversation.

Of course, 9-months old is just no-brainer stupid. Wouldn't be fun for anybody.

I took my two year old to a game last year and she was good the whole time. We take her to Thunder games all the time too and I have never got that look. It really depends on the kid and how they act. I think a playoff game or Monday Night would be too intense for a kid though. Nine months is probably too young though. I would wait until their potty trained at least and then only if they act good. Don't ruin Any ones good time basically.

I went to most every home game between the ages of 6 and 12 and those are some of the best memories I've ever had...

and it's the reason why I'm still such a diehard today...

So 6...6 is definitely a good age.

I would suggest 10 years old or older...

Jesus, I took my daughter to the game when she was 10, it was during the DV years...

I think we were playing Pittsburg, chiefs lost, We had a great time. But I wouldnt take anyone less than 10...

I am taking my son this year. He is 13....

You have to remember, Its Arrowhead, Beer, Mullets and Camaros... Your kids should be prepared for what they are about to see and witness from Chiefs fans... Its shameful at times...

Just buy an RV and call it a business opportunity.

Little Chiefs GameCare:
Letting mom and dad enjoy the earsplitting action inside the stadium while their little papoose enjoys the game in quiet comfort outside.

Charge $50 a child and fill that sucker up. Coupla disney videos and some thomas the train tracks and you got yourself a pack of angry kids. They may not mind now, but feedin time comes all too soon at the old folks home.

You might try one for aging parents, too.

Elder Chiefs GameCare:
Mom and Dad, thanks for the hand-me-down season tickets! Now enjoy your time stacked like cordwood in this fine chiefs themed cattle trailer outside the stadium. We'll replay games from the glory years and you won't know the difference!

Charge $100 per parent, $200 for the top bunks.

A few years back, I went with my cousins to a game (vs. the Patriots...the one where we won when Vinatieri missed the field goal with no time left) and they took their baby (around 9-10 months). We started out in our seats in one of the corners of the upper bowl (nosebleed). The game no more than started and Nate (baby) was crying hysterically. His dad spent nearly the entire game holding him down on the concourse watching the game on a TV by a concession stand. Just throwing this out there. Maybe your kid handles loud noises better though OP.

Leave the kid with grandparents (if applicable) and take the WU to the game. If the Chiefs win tell her that means she is obligated to give the ole knob a spit shine on the way home. Nothing better than a Chiefs game (when they actually win) and a blowjob IMHO.

Arrowhead is not a little kid friendly place. I wouldn't take a child to the game. I think 9 or 10 is the youngest I'd take a kid out there. Even with that, there's a lot of drunks and bad stuff about. Don't expect the environment to be Disneyland.

It's cool you got to see games when you were young. My only experience in my youth was winning the little league championships and getting to go see the SF Giants. Hank Arron hit a foul ball and it spun off my hands, hit me in the chest and spun over my shoulder to the old dude behind me who got the ball. To this day everyone on that team I have contact with still gives me grief. Took Trav to his first MLB game this year at 3 and he totally dug on it. Hopefully I can get him to see the Chiefs soon. If he had it his way at this point in his short life he would preffer seeing Kobe and the Lakers to anything else. Hopefully that will change soon

It's cool you got to see games when you were young. My only experience in my youth was winning the little league championships and getting to go see the SF Giants. Hank Arron hit a foul ball and it spun off my hands, hit me in the chest and spun over my shoulder to the old dude behind me who got the ball. To this day everyone on that team I have contact with still gives me grief. Took Trav to his first MLB game this year at 3 and he totally dug on it. Hopefully I can get him to see the Chiefs soon.

We did baseball sometimes as well he shared a quarter season with business partners for a while. But in my family baseball is more an enjoyable time out at the park...we truly love the game of football.

But along with seeing the Pitt and Hou playoff wins I was unlucky enough to sit through both Colts home playoff losses and the Denver one. Yeesh.

Yea, losing isn't any fun. That's why in Trav's short life he has enjoyed being a Lakers fan. :D

Being a Chiefs fan reminds me of the movie Enter the Dragon and Mr. Han's quote: "We are all ready to win, just as we are born knowing only life. It is defeat that you must learn to prepare for" Oh the agony. Hopefully his youthful memories will be better than mine. At least I have one good one.

I think some of you guys are totally wrong...

I remember Chiefs games when I was 6 years old..

I remember a lady throwing $1 bills every Chiefs TD...and sometimes me catching them (when I was 6 years old)...

I remember LOVING every Sunday when I was 6 years old...

I remember Derrick Thomas...I remember those games...

I WAS 6 YEARS OLD...

That's why I love the Chiefs...

Maybe I was different...

but I'm telling you...

That's why I'm a Chiefs fan?

12..13? Uh...what?

No.

6 or 7 is a FINE age to go to a Chiefs game...

I have GREAT memories from being that young and being at Arrowhead...

you know what...

if anything...you all should hate my dad and his tickets for making me such a Chiefs fan at such a young age...if he didn't take me to Arrowhead 6-8 times a year for 6 years when I was that young I wouldn't be a Chiefs fan and I wouldn't be on this board..that's for sure

ROFL

First off...what?

I was raised amazingly...just because I turned out to be an asshole...or whatever it is you all think...doesn't mean I wasn't raised the right way...

Every single person on this board would have the utmost respect for both my father, and my mother...

Just because I'm an idiot has nothing to do with anything.

Next...

Those tailgates/games at Arrowhead/memories I have...Priceless.

No one will ever take them away from me.

and I moved from KC when I was 12...

Those games...those times...

watching Keith Cash spike Buddy Ryan...

THAT SHIT STAYS WITH ME...

Those are MY MEMORIES...

Even watching the shitty ass 12" TV at my best friends when Montana lost to the Bills...

Those are MY MEMORIES...

You guys are CRAZY if you think kids don't remember things...

I remember it all...

and it's the reason why...it's the reason why I live in Illinois and care about nothing more than Chiefs football...

so yeah...

6 years old..

5 years old...

those are FINE ages to take a kid to a Chiefs game...

No doubt.

my dad tells me...

I don't remember so well...

he tells me how he remembers me becoming such the sports fan I became...

before MJ...

before I started waking at 5:30 AM before school to watch SportsCenter...

he was watching the Chiefs game...

I was watching with him...he always tried to explain the rules...

it was probably 1991...I was 6 years old...maybe 5 at the time...5.5 perhaps....

either way...

Elway drops back to pass...DT sacks him...fumble...Chiefs ball...

I guess...according to pops...I just went nuts about the whole thing...

"Fumble!!! Chiefs ball!"

Had to be a good father moment...

and ever since...nothing I cared about more was Sunday and Chiefs football...

(maybe because I got out of church at first...who knows)...

but you guys are NUTS if you think a 5 year old can't handle Arrowhead...

never once did I have a bad time

Three rows behind me last night sat a middle aged couple and an infant. They proudly held up a sign declaring that it was their 38 DAY OLD CHILD'S first Chiefs game on Monday Night Football.

I was less than impressed and nearly told them how fucking stupid they were. Fortunately for the child they disappeared when the heavy rain started falling.

Where I sit at Chargers games there is a family who has had tickets there pretty much for the past 5 or 6 years (and this is the 10th year I've had mine). It's a grandmother, mother, daughter (about 28 years old for reference), and the daughter's husband.

Well they always get annoyed when I yell when the Chargers are on defense, but frankly, I don't give a fuck. The whole stadium is yelling and I'm sorry if I hurt your ears.

Anyways, today they brought their fucking newborn daughter who was no more than 2.5 months old. I started out yelling and saw that they were covering her ears when I was, so out of respect to the baby, I didn't yell for the rest of the game.

It was sort of bullshit. You should never bring your baby to the game. Why would you put them through that?

Here's what I'd do: Next time, bring some of those putty, formable ear plugs. If they bring their rug rat, then "kindly" offer them the ear plugs when you notice them covering their kid's ears.

I'm not going to possibly hurt the development of a child's hearing just so I can yell, but I am not happy with the parents. That hinges on the border of child abuse.

I wouldn't have stopped yelling. If they want to bring their baby to a game, then they face the consequences of doing so.

At the SF game, there was a SF couple sitting in front of us with a near newborn. They kept covering his ears, and he looked very displeased. If the kid has hearing problems, it's not from my screaming at a professional football game. It's because of his stupid, idiotic parents brought him to a professional football game.

As I've said, we brought our youngster (about 1 year old) to Arrowhead a few times when Trent was playing there, but we brought ear plugs. We also were very flexible about leaving and going where it wasn't loud if need be. We tried to avoid bringing him if we could, but there were times when it just needed to happen. He was fine, but he's a mellow kid. I would never bring my younger son to a game. He's insane and would never sit through one.

1. I've never heard you yell, but having 10 years of yelling experience, I can yell very loudly for a very long time. At least 30 seconds without taking a breath.
2. I guess I have a soft spot for kids. I'm not going to yell if its going to disturb a baby.

There is a big difference between a 1 year old and a 2.5 month old baby.

I took my kids to their first game around age 8 (2 girls) when they had a basic understanding about the game and actually enjoyed the experience. My youngest daughter was a huge Dante Hall fan and made the Jumbotron twice over the years. Little things like the Tomahawk Chop, the old TD chant to Rock-N-Roll pt 2, meeting FDE, Arrow-Man, Belly Boy, Krazy Wolf, etc on the parking lot was what made it a family experience.

I'm sure the age will vary from kid to kid, but we had some great times at Arrowhead as a family.

I would be yelling, but at those parents, not at the opposing offense.

On the subject of bad parents at games... I attended a game at Arrowhead several years ago with my dad on a COLD day against Seattle. In the seats directly in front of us, there was an extremely obnoxious woman from Seattle with her family. While she yelled and screamed during the whole game, her drunk ass husband was passed out in his seat from the whiskey he snook into the game. And her poor little kids (near 5-8 year olds) were freezing their asses off with light jackets to stay warm. I bought them a couple hot chocolates and my dad offered his coat (heavy Chief coat). But, their worthless ass mother refused to let them cover up with a Chief jacket. Some parents don't deserve children....
