There is no reason for me to have expected his sports-obsession to change just because we got married. If you think marrying your man will change his habits, how he treats you, or his obsession with baseball, you are out of your mind. Because even after the ring's on the finger, he will continue to act exactly how he was before you got married. Don't expect your relationship to suddenly transform or get better just because you have rings on your fingers and are legally man and wife.
- Hubby works 9 to 10 hours a day, coaching this sport. Then he comes home and writes up plays, shifts rosters, and talks to his assistant coaches. When he's done, and is ready to relax, he turns on the television... and watches more sports!
- Whatever sport is on television (football, basketball, gymnastics, hockey, golf, dirt-biking, ping-pong...), Hubby will watch it with enthusiasm. I can't even talk to him, because he is in the zone. He can't hear or see anything other than the T.V. when sports are on. He's worse than the kids.
- Not only does he watch the game, but he'll watch the reports, the replays, and all the talk about that game -- the one he just watched! With the power of TiVo, I thought all of this would be in the past, but Hubby still insists on watching all the replays and discussion about something he just saw!
- Did you know there is always an important game on? It's always the preseason, or the semifinals, or the play-offs... and Hubby has to watch them all. Because, as he has told me numerous times, "Honey, this is a really important game I just can't miss." Funny, because that's why I thought we got TiVo, so you could, in fact, miss the game.
