My husband is a football fanatic and die hard Steelers Fan. So for the next 20 weeks he will eat,sleep,and talk a whole lot of football. Being the wife of a FANATIC, I tried to get into and possibly like his favorite pastime. Don’t get me wrong, I watch it, understand it, and even enjoy it, but just not that much of a die hard. I’m personally a New Orleans Saints fan so Go Saints!!!
Sundays are big football days around here. More so for hubby. It starts off early. First the pre-game shows and then the big games. I say games because, he watches them all. He would be lost without his Sunday Ticket…This way he catches ALL of the games and highlights. Other football fanatics would know exactly what I’m talking about. During game time, he likes what he calls his football foods which consists of BEER, WINGS, SANDWICHES and CHIPS so I try to accommodate him and even catch a game or two – but after a while I’m all footballed out and or frustrated.
You see – The boys and I have learned to leave “this man” alone when he watches sports. He talks to the television and argues with the players and coaches. He gets in his zone and is not to be disturbed. We like to talk, ask questions and joke around but that’s a Big no-no during the game, during commercials….maybe. We get the LOOK and it’s time to go. Talk about grumpy. Who wants to watch football and not be able to talk? No fun at all!!! But that’s fine, we find better things to get into.
I may still catch the occasional game or two because I do enjoy watching from time to time but for the most part….during the next 20 weeks, Sundays and Mondays (Monday Night Football) will be his time to unwind and the boys and I will be finding Better things to do rather than being told Quiet…The game is on!!! Whatever!!!
