Sign this and I know its real

In 2011 we have seen two great sports lockout because they were unable to agree on a CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) in the allotted time frame. In short the CBA is simply the agreement between players, and the owners on the overall operations of the business side of the sport. We use CBA’s or some form of them everyday. We at TheManCave06 believe the CBA is one of the important contracts that you will sign during your life. This post will give you the importance of the CBA in relationships in the guidelines needed for you to host an event during a major sporting event. After ratification I guarantee all parties will be happy.

The purpose of the CBA in a relationship is it gives the opportunity of both parties to say what they are expecting to get out of this relationship. I think we should move away from the notion of you must have what you are asking for in order for it to be in the CBA. For example, I cannot cook to save my life so in my CBA I want my lady to hold me down in the kitchen. Here is when some of you foolish individuals will say how can you want someone to cook, but you can’t? My answer is if I could cook, and do all of those other things MYSELF, what is the purpose of having you around?

Furthermore, the CBA really comes into play during this time right here especially a weekend that has so much football and basketball. Football comes on the same day at the same time for 17 weeks. So during football season ladies; if your guy has said he wants football in his CBA and you signed it! You cannot schedule events on Sunday at 2:30 PM talking about we going on a date! Ummmmm no we will not, the date is me in my mancave with food and beverages being delivered. I understand football takes up a lot of time so hence the agreement can be ladies schedule events on Friday or Saturday for weekend activities but on Sunday….. You know what it is! The CBA of relationships prevents uneccessary arguments from happening. When the things are mutually agreed upon their is no need for discussion. Your job may require you to be at work at 8 AM. You signed an offer letter (CBA) to be there at that time so show up or you are in violation of your agreement. No discussion necessary. So I encourage you to embrace the CBA as it can save your relationship a lot of pain and heartache in the future.

The Schematics of Hosting an Event during a major sporting event

Recently TheManCave06 has attended holiday events on Sunday. Events that were composed of both men and women. Hence before every event a CBA must be ratified in order for the event to occur. Why you ask? Simply because if you invite me to an event on football Sunday, and you are not televising the games? Guess who can’t wait NOT to show up! lol. So ladies and gentleman following these simply guidelines will help you successfully host an event on a Sunday during football season.

1. A minimum of a 37 inch high definition 1080p is required. 42 is preferred, but we can make it with a 37 inch. This TV has the main game on.

2. A second TV or screen which is streaming NFL Redzone or another football game. Have appropriate channels for basketball and other sports.

3. Arrival times of 12:45 PM, or 3:50 PM. Cannot schedule the start time in the middle of one game. Times such as 2:30 PM and 5:00 PM are unacceptable. This is in reference to the NFL. Rule of thumb arrival times should be scheduled 15 minutes before the start time of the event.

4. Fourthly all mancave rules must be adhered to.

5. Food and beverages must be served.

So following this short and simply guideline will help you to successfully host an event during a major sporting event. Ladies these are always the specifications so do not be surprised when your man brings them up. Fellas it is your duty to make sure all rules and guidelines are followed especially if you are having your fellow men attending. I will be back later to discuss what to do when a ratified CBA has been violated, but for now work on those CBA’s folks. Happy Holidays from TheManCave06. Some holiday music for you follows.
