Well tonight is officially the first night of football season in our house since the Patriots are playing. Anyone else have a FH that schedules his life around his team? This is going to be a long 5 months lol
We met through our college team, but I'm actually more into it than he is. We're touring a venue first thing on Saturday, but after that we're going to pick up some gameday snacks and hibernate and watch football for the whole day. It's great bonding time for us.
Ditto Lauren. I am posted up in front of the TV ready for the game to start. I have my salad and glass of wine on standby. (I know, totally not football food but I have a wedding dress to fit into next year). WW and wedding project plan up on my laptop. LOLLLLL
Weekends in the fall are for college football (at least here in the South). Luckily, I grew up understanding that so it's something we get to enjoy together. And then we usually plan a long weekend trip in December when it's over (at least until bowl games) so it's a little vacation treat.
Yes!! I have been sending him memes and videos all week! I do enjoy football Sundays. I get to catch up on my shows in another room and we normally stay in and have snacks. But it is pretty funny I do loose him to football!
My son and FH are parked on the sofas. We watch baseball games together, but I'm just not into football, really. We are in KC so this is like Christmas for them. I'm just salty because they're not showing Big Brother tonight.
I've tried to watch some games and I'll sit in the room doing something else while he watches sometimes but the games are sooo slow to me. The only thing I find interesting is when I hear a player's name and I know who he is because I watch reality tv and know his wife or girlfriend lol
I've accepted that sports will always be a major part of out life. FH not only watches every NFL game but is also a huge Blackhawks fan and a White Sox fan. I actually found a great way to deal with football always being on the TV and FH yelling at the TV about his fantasy players. I joined a fantasy league for myself. I'm horrible at it but at least it gives me a reason to be watching with him and gets me I to the games. I usually also have a book or project that I'm working on while watching too.
Not at all, we are both avid sports fans and watch together!!
Go Pats! I'm the one who watches football, so... FH is in the other room doing whatever. He will watch if there's a Saints game or I have munchies and drinks. Otherwise, he couldn't care less. Oddly enough, I have literally never dated a man who watches sports.
I LOVE football season for this reason. Gives me peace and quiet and time to myself for a few months. Although, I do watch it with him most times. FH is going to Vegas for his bachelor party Super Bowl weekend. The unfortunate thing about being Jets fans, aside from being Jets fans, is that our season is over before it begins!! LOL!!!
WWMP I'd have to start a whole new post to vent about all the sports gambling that goes on in my house!!!! If we didn't live all the way in CT my FH would probably try to make quick Vegas trips like you did lol
