This was what I wrote to my kids teachers and school today via email:
Please accept my dearest apologizes for what my husband, Brad, (AKA, the beyond insane sports fan) is doing.
He’s convinced of several things:
1) The LA Kings will win tonight.
2) Our lives will be less-than if we do not attend.
3) We will somehow be able to pay our mortgage after scalping tickets to this game.
My husband wants to get down to the game immediately and has now decided he must pick up all the kids immediately so we can get to the stadium before traffic to have a prayer session so the above happens quickly and smoothly.
I’m so sorry if this causes my kids to be behind on anything.
Please know you can keep my husband for detention.
Wish us luck.
