Re: How much does your spouse know about football?

My wife's family is from the Chicago area so they are all Bears fans.
But she didn't know squat about football until she met me.
She has a pretty good grip of the game and knows who most of the important players are.
I get tired of the Bears rah rah stuff though.
At Christmas time I always move her Bears ornament to the back of the tree.

Re: How much does your spouse know about football?

God Bless my wife. She couldn't have cared less about football before we got together, but with me playing, coaching our son, and eventually coaching HS, she's been "all in". She was team Mom a couple years for my son's team and has been on the sideline helping in mid-30 degree driving rain.

She knows and understands most of the game and can hold a knowledgable conversation on it. She likes Brees (he's really accurate and does a good job) and Clay Matthews (he Fs people up), she's a Raiders fan but she knows "they won't be good with Al Davis or his son running it". During the season, football's on every night but Tues/Wed. Like I said in the other thread, suffering through Bachelor or DWTS is a worthwhile trade-off.

Not married but my gf doesn't really like it. I'm glad she doesn't like it too. Football Sundays are my day. Leave me alone.

Re: How much does your spouse know about football?

My wife grew up in a household that watched a lot of football, hockey, baseball, boxing, so she has a genuine interest in watching those sports. And while she doesn't keep up with current rosters and such, she knows who the big name players are. We go to one Redskins game a year, and our 3 year old and 2 year old know that Sundays in the fall are for "touchdown redskins". I even get to watch it during dinner instead of Dora or Wonder Pets, or whatever cartoon the kids are into that very moment.

Re: How much does your spouse know about football?

I am a blessed man. My wife is actually in more fantasy football leagues (3) than than me (2). She LOVES football, knows the ins and outs of the rules, and knows just as much about stats/players as any guy I know. On Sundays in the fall, she's completely content to just chill and watch game after game. It started with her love of Gator football when she was a kid growing up outside of Orlando, and when she met me, she got really into the pro game.

Sorry about your decade-long dry spell. During those Zorn years, it seems like 17 points was our ceiling...and we only hit that a couple of times!

Things are looking up this year though!

Nothing!! Plus, she doesn't care that she knows nothing.

The best is when she's wearing nothing but a jersey (actually happens a lot when it's just the two of us watching a night game) and she's cheering and yelling at the TV. It's so awesome. Trust me, I don't take it for granted even one little bit. Reason #632 that I asked her to marry me.

This is me, too. For me I'd feel like George Costanza, the worlds would collide. If relationship Schneed walked into the living room on Sunday afternoon, he would kill football fanatic Schneed.

Spouses need their time apart and separate interests. Football is mine. Book club is hers.

My wife loves football, a diehard Giants fan but other than that she knows a lot about it and watches every Sat and Sun.

I totally get that. I think if my wife didn't work or we both had 9-5 type jobs, that would be the case with us. But given our conflicting work schedules, sometimes we'll go 2 or 3 days without seeing each other, aside from sleeping next to one another. So football is actually some nice quality time for us.

Re: How much does your spouse know about football?

I'm in a somewhat new relationship.. she just bought me sec 240 row 1 ticket for the Dallas game to serve as my bday present... she's from SF and a Niners fan, but she doesn't follow football

We had talked about going to the niners game since she wanted to and then surprises me with this, though it is only one ticket.. but that was unselfish of her, possibly foregoing a cheaper game to attend, gotta try to get her a ticket so that she sees my passion firsthand lol

So she may not be IN to football but she knows what's important.. and just locked me down for another 2.5 months now that I think about it lol
