Since the doctor's office seems to think that my wife will have Britt by Friday, and since everyone knows how much I love the Gators, and what I plan to be doing at 8 pm on Thursday; I have come up with a few ideas on what to do or say if my wife goes into labor before/during the big game...
Thursday she isn't allowed to have: Mexican food, chocolate, supreme pizza, or Castor oil. She also can't walk anywhere, must stay in bed.
Thursday morning, "How can you have the baby if I'm on my way to Miami?"
At 8:05 pm, "Honey I don't think that you are dilated enough/having close enough contractions/or whatever to go to the hospital yet."
"I was a Gator fan before I was a father. This game comes first." If she goes into active labor before halftime.
If we have to go to the hospital during the game, "Thank goodness there are TVs in the delivery room."
In case she makes me turn off said tv, "Honey, I'll be right back, I'm just going to get you some ice chips..."
For during the game after I turn the tv back on and take away her remote, "Honey, you can push during the commericals."
In case he really comes during the game, "But, I don't want to mess up my good Gator shirt!"
Just a couple of questions for our readers: Is it wrong to get more excited about a game, than Britt getting here? If he's born right after the game can we name him Gator Britt, instead of Gary Britt Jr. the III?
