If you are my woman and I am watching a sports game, prepare to be ignored. It doesnt matter if the house is on fire.
Unless the fire disconnects the electricity or ruins the cable signal, I am staying until the end.
And I am sure I am not the only guy out there like this.
Its not our attempt to be rude or be a bad boyfriend but there is a sacred bond between a man and his sports thats been passed down throughout the generations.
We put on the jersey, get the popcorn and break out the beer in preparation for the next hours that will consume us.
I can only imagine the women shaking their heads at this behaviour wondering why their men are ignoring them.
You don’t know sports
I know there are exceptions to this rule, that there are women that have no problem throwing on a jersey and grabbing a beer to watch the game.
However in my experience this is more the exception than the rule. Most women don’t follow sports to the level men do, and its because of this we don’t pay attention to what is being said because it doesnt relate to the match.
When we are in the zone the only thought on our mind is the game, and unless you are able to speak sports, you won’t grab our attention.
You want to cuddle
I get it, when a man and a woman that are intimately involved are sitting on the couch, one of the normal reactions is to snuggle close to one another.
However this is not the time, we are too busy yelling at the screen as if it will make a difference.
Studying every move of the players. Criticizing them then claiming how we could have done better.
Its no time for cuddling and being the emotional.
You are not a guy
Growing up we played sports with guys, we watched games with guys, and even played sports video games with guys.
If a players steals a pass we cheer so loud its as if the cure for cancer was discovered. If our team loses the finals, we go into a state of depression and have to be put on suicide water.
The Mr.Hyde that we become and the way we act during the game, a guy understands much better that a woman will, because we are wired the same.
Now this does not mean that we don’t like you, and won’t spend time with you. We will…as soon as the game is done..
