Matty,

Didn't mean it as a criticism. I went to that vikings game. Wasn't it the week following the "Too Legit to quit" Falcons playoff game?

My point was some guys were giving him advice like he had the dough to spend you have when you have a real job, and real worries (Like, will my wife look at my cell phone bill carefully?)

Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

Guys this is a funny thread, but it just makes me want to share this story. My wife and I have been married for 13 years. Yes, if you do the math we got married in 1992, so it was a good year all the way around because that was the last time the Skins won the Super Bowl, so I blame our marriage on their failure since then. No I am kidding, anyway back to the story.... my beautiful wife and mother of my two kids, knows I love the Redskins. I live in Southwestern KY and have to watch the Titans all the time, so a friend of mine that is as big a Skins fan as me AND is single has NFL Sunday Ticket and we watch the Skins games every week at his house. Sunday September 11th at noon we are all set to watch the Skins/Bears game and his girlfriend calls on her cell phone to talk (she is driving down the road and has time on her hands!) Anyway, he feels obligated to talk to her for like 30 minutes and misses almost the entire 1st quarter of their opening game. Geez! I wanted to tell him to call her back in 3 hours and talk all you want. He was obviously miserable and said to me when he got off the phone "be glad you are married to someone who understands football" I was like DUH! This guy needs to drop her like a rock or explain what a Skins fan is like.....Obsessive!

You need to tell your girlfriend to plan shopping days around bye weeks and weeks when the Skins are playing in prime time. Other than that, sundays 1-4 or 4-7 are all booked up!

No, the next week the Skins lost to SF.

I'm talking about the 92-93 season when the Skins were coming off the SB win and they went 9-7 in the regular season.

Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

Luckily, my husband never had to face that dilemma, because I am a sports fan too. Even if I weren't, and I knew that my boyfriend or spouse loved to watch the game, I would never ask him to make that choice. Besides, I prefer shopping alone - can't stand to have hubby tagging along and he can't stand to do so either.

Bottom line - if she cares for you, she'll happily let you watch the game. Why is Sunday, during gametime, the only time for shopping?

Remember the Skins-Vikings playoff game in '92? The one where B-Mitch had a big game?

Wanna know where I was... the mall. I'll never forgive myself for that.


I rember that game too. I was stuck in a van driving up to Mammoth Mountain. I remember we stoped at a Taco Bell on the way and there was a pizza parlor in the parking lot. I suddenly got the urge for a slice of pizza.Hoping that they had the Reskins game on I ran over there. They had the game on so I saw a little of it. But beeing that I am the only Redskins fan in my group of friends 15 min later they all came over from Taco Hell and told me if I didn't get my ass in the van I would be watching football there all weekend. So rather then miss my ride up the mountain I reluctantly left. Man was that a long trip.
What really sucked was we watched football between skiing the rest of the weekend. Figures the Redskins just had to be the frist game on that weekend. :frusty:
That was the same weekend that Frank (Wrike?) brought the Bills back over Houston. We went skiing at half time because we thought that the game was over. I almost sh-t when I got back to the cabin and saw the score.
That Vikings game was also Gibbs last playoff win. We lost to the 49ers in the mud at the stick the very next weekend. Gibbs retierd after that season. It was all down hill from there. That was before this year of course.

Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

Every girl I have ever dated I have told the 2 most Important things in my life are the Redskins and then my mother and they will never come before either. I dated one girl for three years and she said the greatest compliment I ever gave her was that I told her she was almost as important to me as the Redskins. I have never missed a game since I was 15 and only way I would is if my mom was dying. But depends on where you rank Skins in your life. Pick which is more important to you. Me I will always place skins above everything but football and Skins are my first love I am 23 and still sleep with my football and in redskins pajama pants. But only few months I don't think is long enough.

Re: I'm facing a dilemma (sp)

yay! i've worked things out. i talked to her today, and we've decided on this. at noon she has an appointment at a nice little spa, with that whole thing going, whatever it is they do, i just know she likes it. she's gonna be there from noon to 5 p.m., giving her time to do whatever she pleases, and i'm gonna pick her up at 5, leaving me free to watch the game! it works out for both of us. and yes, i did talk to her about how important football is to me, and she's said that she will help me work around it in the future.

And when she comes home she'll smell like raindbows and sunshine.

Then you can get your groove on. Make sure she inquires about the "Brazilian" treatment.

Did you pay for that appointment? If so you got hosed. When my wife is adamant about making plans during a game, I just drop the cat off at the pound about 2 hours before the game and tell her she got out. I let her walk around the neighborhood and make up fliers for a few hours. Then I go "looking" for the cat after she gets exhausted (usually around 6) and I always "find" her. Then I get Hero Sex.

You gotta be more creative.
