IT looked like I was not going to be able to watch the game as this is labor day weekend and we always travel back to Kansas to visit relatives. I would usually watch hit and miss the game because most of His family do not watch football (except his uncle in Wichita that has season tickets)

But, my daughter broke her foot this week and we will not be traveling. So we get to watch the game uninterupted!!!! NO 4-5 hour drive for me...

LOL! Nothing like profitting off your childs pain (grin).

08-31-2000, 02:53 PM
Uh…congratulations on the broken foot?

wondering if Hallmark makes a card for this occasion.<BR>

I really was not looking forward to the trip so yes, I guess I am looking at the silver lining.

Actually, we went to the ortho surgeon today (we both got to play hookey from school) and it is a clean fracture and will heal really fast since she is 8 and the break is clean and not bad. She is not even in a real cast (which made her mad--she already had her colors picked out) Just a walking boot and crutches prn.

How did you go about giving her a clean break? http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I bought her the wrong kind of shoes cause they were the "in" thing. She rolled her foot on the first day of school. Last week.

This week in PE they were doing the punt, pass and kick contest and she kicked and punted...thus compounding the first injury from last week.

I get to hang Sh#t on the PE teacher for a while..... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif He is a friend of mine so it is just good-natured ribbing.

Oh, man

Husband just called...he thinks we could make the trip any way cause she did not get a cast and can manover pretty well.

Oh well...hit and miss...Maybe I will piss the family off and just stay downstairs and watch the game...

I do have a hand held tv...

Pam - I would watch the game, it is 3 hours out of the weekend, if that pisses them off then they need to get a life.

because as we all know football is life (grin)

Living in Knoxville TN, I never get to see the Chiefs much, so today, I had Direct TV installed and got the NFL Ticket. This evening on the 5 o'clock news, they announced the Colt-Chiefs game would be televised here. Because the Titans play Sunday night, and Peyton is still a hero here. Oh well, the rest of the year, except week 2 would have been iffy at best. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif

Pam, I'm glad to hear your daughter is doing well. She sounds like a tough little one! Maybe she could play with the Chiefs after Mia Hamm. Any player who can participate in the Punt, Pass, and Kick with a broken foot will certainly impress Gunther. Maybe you should start letting her play outside in the Winter without sleeves!

I think it is your duty to convert that family of yours into Chief fans!

KCRed~Congrats on the best purchase you could ever make! I hope you have nothing to do for the next 17 Sundays.

Good call Morphius. Where are the priorities??? Watch the game and enjoy it. Don't be afraid to celebrate out loud!

08-31-2000, 04:12 PM
Pam, hug the relatives, then go watch the game. Like Morph says, if they're upset that's their problem...

True guys, it is just 3 hours. Actually, my father-in-law might watch with me if he is not busy cooking his catfish, hushpuppies and fried potatos. He always has a fish fry when we come up there.

Holli is doing great, but I feel bad as I could have taken her to the doctor last week and maybe saved her from a complete break.

08-31-2000, 05:37 PM
Pam, look at it this way. Thanks to Hollis you might get to watch MORE football than you normally would have!

Also, it's hard to know how bad your kid is hurt sometimes. They could have a really bad fracture and act like they're fine. Or they could have a simple "owwie" and claim they're mortally wounded...

Sounds like your pop-in-law likes a lot of grease with his food... I couldn't handle it...


08-31-2000, 05:38 PM
Sorry, meant "Holli"...

Yea, the pop-in-law is pretty cool.

Holli complains about everything (I guess it is her age thing) so I really did not think much of it. She only said it hurt a couple of times but I thought she just sprained it a little.

After the ppk in PE, she was crying and that is when I took a serious look and sure enough. It was black and blue and swollen.

She is getting along nicely on her crutches. I think that by monday, she will be walking without them. She is in a moon boot and doing fine.

Will try to watch the home opener but my in laws do not get cable so I will cross my fingers that the antenna and the waves are lined up right.

Pam - Maybe you can run over to Clint or Gaz's place. (grin)

08-31-2000, 09:19 PM
Glad your daughter is okay. It's nice to know that I'm not the only woman with a husband who is not a big football fan.
Should have got to know him a little better first! haha.

Tell me about it...

I think that they tell you what pleases you then when the woman assumes the man's last name, they let their real selves show!!!

As if putting a ring on a womans finger isn't like pulling the ripcord on an inflatable raft!
