It is no secret that if you ask my kids what their dad, my husband loves, they would say- sports- followed by his family. YES in that order. In fact, as we were getting our wills drawn up- he told me I CAN ONLY PULL THE PLUG if he can’t listen to sports radio. I always ask him, “why do you like sports so much, how can you sit on the couch for hours on end and not get bored?” to which he responds, “It’s competition, it’s the unknown.” To which I respond– “That is EXACTLY why I watch The Real Housewives”. To which he says, “LOL, the Real Housewives is mindless garbage, fighting over ridiculous things.” To which I respond: “So chasing a ball around a field is not at all ridiculous.” To which he responds, “It is a skill, it is athletic, it takes work and practice– arguing over Chardonnay or red wine or who slept with who’s husband, or if she left me out of the party is not my idea of entertainment.” I could go one and on- but I will stop here- because the conversations we have about this topic are ENDLESS- I will defend the Real Housewives franchise till the end as he will defend his obsession with sports.
I am an admitted sports widow. My husband’s FIRST love, the love I will always play second fiddle to is SPORTS. And this is every type of sport . I know you’d think there would be one sport that he might say- NAH I’d rather go with my wife to Michael’s and pick out more fake flowers with her than watch. But of course you’d be remiss- my husband refuses to pick out fake flowers with me or accompany me on any of my weekly trips to Michael’s and the man will watch any and all sports with such a fervor- I wish I could bottle that concentrated laser sharp focus and aim it at me when I ask him if he thinks that the pair if jeans I put on make my thighs look thin.
