There’s nothing my husband would rather do than sit on the couch all day Sunday and watch his NFL Sunday Ticket HD package, I swear. It’s tough enough to get him to look at me when I call his name but now that the lock out is over he’s really on the edge of his seat. See, he’s an ex-NFL player (I can’t say which team) and he’s got a lot riding on each game, literally! He and some of the old teammates bet on the games even though they shouldn’t but they’re only doing a few bucks here and there or even something intangible like a car wash.. Anyway, I guess I don’t really mind being a football widow on Sundays because it used to be my whole life when he was playing ball…it’s much better now because I don’t have to worry about him getting hurt or coming home in a terrible mood because one of his teammates dropped the ball and they lost a big game!
