Toddler Play Area at JetBlue’s Terminal 5 in JFK

Toddler Play Area at JetBlue’s Terminal 5 in...

My wife, daughter (21 months at the time), and I recently flew on JetBlue out of their brand new Terminal 5 facility at JFK Airport in New York. I’ve always been a fan of JetBlue and a steady customer since they first popped up as an airline. There’s not much not to like – flights with more legroom, leather seats, TVs in every seat, cheap flights, etc. So, it was only fitting that when they recently...

My daughter...

Choosing Your Child’s Sports Team Allegiance

Choosing Your Child’s Sports Team Allegiance...

I am a die hard New York Yankees fan.  My wife is a die hard New York Mets fan.  Our kids will be…. When my wife and I were first dating the fact that we supported opposing baseball teams in New York was more of a cocktail joke than anything else.  Naturally, most Mets fans despise the Yankees for their greatness and pretension, and Yankees fans are condescendingly sympathetic with Mets fans and love to highlight...
