During football season, every Sunday is football day for my FI. He goes to hang out with the boys at the bar and they watch football. They all do fantasy football. They have to watch all the games blah blah blah. Is it sometimes annoying? Yeah. But for football people, Sunday is a holy day and they just straight up aren’t going to let anything interfere with football Sunday. You’re gonna have to deal with it. At least it’s not DH – then you’d be a football widow like me. Good thing I LOVE having Sundays to myself.

Oh, and it has nothing to do with maturity or immaturity. It has to do with the fact that they are obsessed with football. That doesn’t change with age. It will probably get more intense as they get older, in fact.

Ouch, Saturday too? Thankfully my FI doesn’t do College Football. It sucks that they are totally wrapped up in their football addiction and it’s affecting family plans. From your post it sounds like there might be other immaturity issues unrelated to the football issue that you are tired of. I guess just try to be patient? I don’t have any good advice for this one! Sorry 🙁

I think that people should be willing to stray from their typical activities around the holidays, so what I’m getting from your post is that they are immature and football parties are the way it is being demonstrated by them. GIve them another time and date suggestion and if they still bail, it is on them. You will have provided them with multiple options for a time tog et together.
