My guy loves his football, baseball, hockey, you name it. He reads multiple sites and articles every day. Every time we hang out with all our friends, his go-to topic is always the same. It’s starting to worry me that he doesn’t really care to talk about anything else..i.e. I sometimes feel like I’m forcing him to talk to me about something besides the Texans or Astros! Granted he has gotten better lately (after I confronted him about it of course). I just feel like there are so many things to talk about in the world…is that wrong of me? Anyone else have a sports fanatic in their lives?

um. yeah. did i write this post?! LOL. My bf is OBSESSED with the Texans, not so much with other sports besides football though. It gets really bad during the season that I actually leave most sundays to go do something else because he gets so emotionally involved in the games. And when they arent doing so well….its a disaster! I feel ya girl and I think you took a step in the right direction by talking to him about it. Sometimes they need a reality check by letting them know that there are more things YOU want to talk about that dont involve sports.

No, thank God he isn’t obessed. However, he does like a goos game from time to time he isn’t obessed. He even went to a basketball game the other day and watches the games frequently… I wouldn’t call it obessed though.
To feel like there are other things to talk about in the world. No thats not wrong of you… you just want more conversation that who shot what goal… thats uderstandable. However, if it is something he is passionate about and it seems it is…then honey….. you’d better get use to it. His love for sports ain’t going nowhere! LOL
But compromising is always a treat too! He’ll have to know how to juggle both. 🙂

oh yes. big time 🙂 sometimes its annoying when it takes all his attention! but then i think about all the things i like that he doesn’t, like shopping and chick flicks. so it kind of balances out. its good to have separate interests

I’m the one that’s obsessed. My husband loves college football, but his passion has increased since being with me. And this year he got talked into joining a fantasy football league at work. So now he watches NFL on Sundays, just like I always have.

Yes. He says he’s only obessed with college football but its simply not true and its annoying. Football season he schedules his life around his team and he uses the excuse “its only one time a year” but then there’s always a basketball game he HAS to watch or a race he needs to see. SO ANNOYING!

My guy is obessed with his Iphone. Does that count?

Um yes to sports. It doesnt matter what sport it is. It could be two turtles kicking a ball back and forth- and if it is on ESPN, its on in our house!!! I guess I am no better with celebrity gossip though!

Ugh. Yes. He listens to sports radio while he’s in the shower so that he doesn’t spend a minute without the influence of ESPN!!

I wanted to write a similar post when I was grumpy yesterday. I am very into sports during college football season, but the rest of the year, I will look up a score if I really want to know. I particularly hate how loud sportscasters’ voices are (especially on Sportscenter), and listening to the players’ shoes squeak during basketball games. If you want to set me off, just put on Sportscenter at or above an average volume level, or tune into March Madness. Argh!! 🙂 And I am being 100% serious about these being pet peeves.

Yes. I’m writing this as my husband sits tensely on the floor watching the Ohio State basketball game.
We even planned our wedding around Ohio State’s football season 🙂
It doesn’t bother me too much though since I’m a sports fan as well. I must say, all of my husband’s useless sports knowledge comes in pretty handy when we play trivia every Wednesday night.

Kind of, don’t even get him started on the subject of arm wrestling, you could be there all night. We, too, had to plan our wedding around Husker football, not just the FH that would disappear to watch the game, but also all the guests. Nebraska revolves around Husker football, everybody here knows that you never schedule ANYTHING that would be at the same time as a football game as nobody would be there.

@BrianneG: We’re the same way.
The first thing I do when I get on the door is put on ESPN or whatever network’s showing the best game. Even if I don’t care about either team playing. When I am lucky enough to get to see one of my team’s games (no satellite, don’t live in market), he can sit quietly on the couch or he can leave me alone to watch. He’s just about as into NFL football as I am (but roots for my team’s rival… booo!) and we both love watching our college football team, but he definitely doesn’t share my desire to have something going on the TV at all times. Also, he doesn’t like baseball which is serious :

@tksjewelry: You know what? One of my high school friends (I grew up just 20 minutes south of Lincoln) actually had her wedding the same day as the first home game. I couldn’t go because I worked at Iguana’s in Lincoln at the time, and it is SO hard to get work off from a bar on game days. I just thought it was crazy! 🙂 But I still love her.
