NEW YORK — Joe and Lynn Gurski and their infant son, Ryan, arrived prepared to see the New York Jets host the Jacksonville Jaguars at MetLife Stadium last week.

Tickets. Check. Keys and wallets. Check. Check. A clear plastic bag filled with baby formula, diapers and wipes. Check. Check. Check.

“I just brought the bare essentials,” said Lynn, who had Ryan in a baby carrier and his bottles and diapers in a bag in her left hand. “You make it work.”

Darn men, have life so easy.

“It’s discriminatory against women,” said Katie McSherry, whose thoughts were echoed by her sister, Claire, and their friend Alyssa Rossi. “Men don’t have to worry about it.”

Great stimulus for the fashion industry to design “cargo skirts” for women.

Taking a baby to an NFL game is a bad idea in the first place.

I can’t imagine why anyone would take a loved one to a New York Jets game. There are few people on this planet who are further down the food chain than Jets fans. LOL.

Can the players still host dogfights, commit murder, and sell drugs?

That’s what I was thinking. Who takes their baby to a NFL game. It’s a stadium full of drunk loud guys. It’s no place for an infant.

Some fans suspect that the changes were aimed at preventing people from bringing their own food and drinks into stadiums and forcing them to spend more at concession stands.

How could they even think that NFL owners could be so greedy. After all, you can still get a beer for $10, a hot dog for $8 and a half dozen roasted peanuts for $5 at most football stadiums.

You've never been to an Eagles game in Philly, obviously.

As soon as I hit the "Post" button I knew I was going to get a response like that. LOL.

I stand corrected. Jets fans are plankton. Eagles fans are whale crap.

The non-sexist answer clearly is to force men to carry women’s purses through security.
