This is just a vent, I’m not looking for advice, i just want to bitch.
Darling Husband had a friend over tonight to watch the Packers game, so my mom and I decided to go see a movie (saw Into the Storm…. It sucked btw) and my dad babysat dd, which he loooves doing. After the movie we went back to my parents to get dd and her and I went home. I knew the Packers were losing, so I knew I would be coming home to an angry husband. I found him sitting on the couch all pissy with the tv off. Dd was cranky and needed to be fed and go to sleep, so I quickly got myself ready to nurse her and Darling Husband went to our bedroom to pout. I was on the couch and dd had fallen asleep, so I was holding her before putting her to bed. Darling Husband came back out and turned the game back on, he threw another fit and turned it off again. When I got dd into bed and got myself ready to bed, I hear Darling Husband cussing and throwing yet another fit. He then goes to get ready for bed while throwing things down and being a dick if you ask me.
I got upset because he’s being loud and in my mind, unnecessarily angry (pretty sure tomorrow will come, even though the Packers lost) I told him I didn’t want to be around him if he was going to be so mad, so I was going to sleep in dd’s room. He got mad saying something about the team and I said I didn’t really care, I just don’t want to be around him right now and he needed to chill out. So he went to sleep on the couch and I get our bed to myself.
He gets like this every time the Packers lose and it’s really getting old. He normally doesn’t get this mad, so it’s not like he needs anger management. I’m so tired of his attitude when a sports game doesn’t go his way!!

My husband doesn’t throw things or anything like that, but he certainly does pout when his Raiders lose! I try to find the humor in it though & it pisses him off more when I’m laughing at him ..whoops ;). I can see how your situation is frustrating though, especially with a child you don’t want wakened!

I understand your frustration at how he’s acting. Personally I can’t stand being around people who get really angry/scream at the tv during a game. It makes me very uncomfortable. It can make the whole household really tense when somebody flies into a temper. Does he know how much it affects you to see him get that riled up?

I looove the Packers (like, right now Im sad and wearing my jersey) but I never do that stuff and I can totally relate to you. My Darling Husband is a HUGE Steelers fan who throws stuff and yells. A couple of seasons ago, when they lost vs. Tebow he broke his glasses after throwing them to the wall. We got into a huge fight because i was totally pissed off. Afterwards we talked and he tried to make me see that the game means A LOT to him, I told him he needed to try to control himself. He kinda does now (but I still prefer to go to a movie or something when I have the feeling that the steelers will lose)

I never thought I’d say this but I’m glad football season has come. I started working part time waiting tables at a sports bar for some extra cash and tonight was awesome! Full section of men who wanted to tip. Dolla dolla bill y’all!

What is it with men?! I mean, I’m a huge Blues fan, but my world doesn’t come crashing down when they lose! And with Darling Husband now, it’s the first game of the season, not the Super Bowl! before I left my parents’ house I joked that dd and I should just spend the night, I’m thinking that’s not too bad of an idea for next time.

My husband is the same way…sort of. He definitely gets pissed and it can ruin his whole day if the Eagles lose, but he doesn’t throw things. I normally just finish the game and go about my day. If he’s acting like a dick, I just ignore him until he calms down. Sometimes I actually find it funny how invested he and his dad get into the games. Not much help here because I love football season. It means fall is coming, time for more BBQs with friends on Sundays, and wings! Haha

Fall_In_Love22: I hate sports so much. Like with a passion. It boggles my mind that we pay our teachers PENNIES and athletes make millions. Luckily my Darling Husband hates sports more than I do, so we commiserate together and make fun of people getting upset about the ‘home team.’ We also have matching “Stupid Bowl” shirts LOL. It also sucks that I go to a huge Uni that is really (I mean REALLY) big on sports. Actually, just yesterday the news came to interview our lab for a piece with the American Heart Association and ended up bringing a campus coach and somehow turning our story about our research into a story about him needing a stent. Whatever, I guess. It just annoys the crap out of me. /END RANT.

Can’t really relate, I get SUPER pissed when my team loses (Go Saints!). However; football season happens once a year, and it is hyped majorly in the offseason. All he has heard about since last February is how Green Bay should play this year, that’s a lot of anticipation.
If he is anything like me or my Darling Husband, for months leading up to it we track players, fantasy picks, throw money into fantasy leagues, we purchase season tickets, have big parties for away games, etc. (AKA: football becomes an investment and a way of life for about 4 months.)
So yeah, when they lose– or when my fantasy player sucks– I get pissed. Especially since (in the case of college football at least), one loss in the SEC can mean you’re out of National Championship contention depending on how the season shakes up.
…and the Packers could have won that game, I would have been pissed, too!

Fall_In_Love22: This is why I married a man who couldn’t give 2 shits about football! LOL
FutureDrAtkins: This probably won’t surprise you but I rant about the same exact thing about the salaries all the time 🙂 Hope you’re doing well, almost ring almost wedding date twin!

Oh, I feel your pain! Football season and me are NOT friends. When our summer hikes and trips get replaced with him arguing with his friends about their fantasy trades and planning all our activities around the games its a little ridiculous…
I could totally do without football!!!

Andthepupmakes3: 🙂 It drives me absolutely crazy. As a rule of thumb during football season I stay off of social media Saturday-Monday because it makes me ragey when I see 9 million status updates about sports. Oh, you didn’t wear your lucky jersey? It’s YOUR FAULT that “your team” lost.

Every time football season rolls around, I am SO happy that my Darling Husband hates sports as much as I do. I would not be able to put up with that kind of tension caused by a stupid game.
