My only brother and his wife are expecting a baby in January and I couldn't be more excited to become an uncle for the first time. My kids will finally have a cousin! I can't wait until the kid gets old enough to come spend weekends with us and overall, I'm just looking forward to it.
Here's the problem. They have scheduled a "Gender Reveal" party for August 30th. She's a nurse and he's a paramedic, so they have limited options for free days. But I called them and told them that it wouldn't work since I have tickets to the Clemson game. But they wouldn't reschedule. So I called my mom and warned her that I would be the black sheep by not attending and not bringing my kids. I was told that I would be excommunicated and not allowed to see my niece/ nephew.
So pretty much, I have it worked out so that I can spend an hour at the what-have-ya and make it to the game, but I'll miss tailgating.
Here are my concerns: first of all, what the is a "gender reveal" party and is that another ty girly event now that I'll have to start attending? Secondly, does anyone see a solution where I can just ditch the rest of my family but still get to hang out with my niece/ nephew?

Maybe I need new family and friends.

Last September one of her friends was getting married in Maine on a Saturday, on UK football Saturday, and on my 30th friggin birthday. And I was supposed to suck it up and go. Not a chance. I stayed, she went.
My sister would be dumb enough to schedule some stuff on a Saturday, but when ever she has it has to be scheduled around the UK game. Same goes for Bengals Sundays.

Almost all baby events are girl events, this sounds like an excuse for the women to get together and activate full "emotional mode" ... Your mom is clearly overreacting and I naturally respond poorly to threats, I make people call their bluffs all the time. I honestly would go to the game because I'm :lanekiffin:ing grown and I do what I :lanekiffin:ing what and that event sounds extremely minor. If they don't want me in a kids life because I missed the part in the process where they told everyone the gender. That's on them not you. They should be happy for you being able to go to a big game like this one.
Last year on our Mizzou pay to post board a girl threatened to leave a guy over him going to the Florida game over going to her kid's 2nd birthday party that she had with another guy. The general consensus was that if the person doesn't know you well enough to know how important getting to go see your team in person would mean to you then they're not worth having around in your life anyways. I feel like this applies to this situation too.
^edit: they refused to reschedule even a few hours to accommodate the game which was an early kickoff.
Tl;dr..... screw the estrogen fest... go watch football

As for a gender reveal party, that's inexcusable. Missing the game completely would be terrible, but at least you'll get there. Hell, tailgate at their place...just drink on the future of a neice/nephew. Poor em out a beer.

Actually, I think you're doing a good thing by spending an hour with the family and then heading to the game. You may miss the tail-gating, but you'll make your family happy and also get to see UGA beat the crap out of Clemson (hopefully).

Secondly, does anyone see a solution where I can just ditch the rest of my family but still get to hang out with my niece/ nephew?
Let me offer some mature advice while i wait for direct tv to kick in with sec network at 5:00.
1. Don't go.
2. Send a gift... a cheap one.
3. Inform your mother that unless she is the Pope or one of his people/excommunicator that she can't excommunicate anyone.
4. Get her excommunicated first.
5. Inform her that she can't see YOUR kids unless she brings your new nephew/niece with her.
6. Annoy all of your relatives like I do and you won't get invited anywhere.
On a serious note, I can see where there might be some potential hard feelings but I guess that depends on family dynamics. Just tell them you love them but have other commitments.

1. If it were me, I would tell my wife and kids to go and I would go tailgate with my Georgia fans (aka family) at your normal tailgating spot. Its the first game and a huge one. Nut up son... ( Keep in mind, i got married in April ) 18 months after i proposed...why? I told my now wife, that i WOULD NOT be missing ANY Georgia games so August - Jan was out of the picture.
I also attend the Gatornationals Drag race in March and my father and grandfathers birthday is also in March. So that's out. We settled on April.
She drug me to a friends wedding 3 years ago when UGA played Kentucky. It was a church wedding. I agreed to go, not 5 min into the dudes walking down the isle, i had already hacked the church wifi, asked for forgiveness for committing that sin, and proceeded to insert an ear piece into my phone and watched the game the entire ceremony. She will never ask me to miss a Georgia game again.
2. IF you get drug to hell on earth reveal party, whose to say you cant tailgate there? I would not miss the game if i had tickets if a sinkhole swallowed everything i know and love leaving me with only a pink bicycle with ing ponies on it.
3. IF you dont grow any balls and go to this reveal party, Can i have you tickets?
