    He doesn’t do football unless it’s checking to see how badly Caley Thistle got gubbed on a Saturday (and smiling heartily on the rare occasion that they actually win).

    We do watch F1 together, though.

    SO is a huge college sports fan, so we watch basically every UF game, and then sprinkling of other games.  I didn’t go to a sports school (I didn’t even know we had a football team until my second year…), so it’s new for me…but I tolerate it more than follow it.  I root for UF, but I wouldn’t say I know much about the team aside from the colors, haha.

    I watch with him, but I’m somewhere between enjoying it and tolerating it. I usually fall asleep while we’re watching it. I’m a monster without my Sunday nap! Anyway, I’m a Redskins fan and he’s a Jets fan.

    I don’t care for sports in general, except soccer.  Fiance is into soccer too so it works.  He never showed interest in watching football all the years I’ve known him.  But this year he was driving me nuts because of his damn fantasy football.  That’s the only reason he cared, to win that.  Can’t wait for it to end.

    ETA: were in eagles country, i dont need to watch to know they suck.

    It’s a religion in our house. Darling Husband and I are die hard steelers fans. We started dating at the beginning of football season so I got to show him how crazy I am. He hates it though when we are out with others and it’s apparent I know more about it than him. πŸ˜‰

    Thankfully Fiance isn’t into sports at all, and neither am I, so we can be completely clueless together about it all, and I don’t have to deal with that noise on TV or bad moods if “his” team loses πŸ™‚

    I think I am more into football than my SO is. I am that intense fan that yells at the tv and my mood is greatly impacted by my team winning or losing. I grew up watching football and playing catch/flag football with my older brother so I understand and love the game. I always get sad when the season ends, it is way too short. Only one more regular season game, boo. But I can’t wait for the playoffs, Go Patriots!!

    I love, love, love my Patriots and he loves his Redskins.  I’ve learned a bit about the Redskins and root for them, too…but if the Pats are playing them, I cheer for my Boston boys.  πŸ™‚

    Tedy Bruschi is my favorite player ever.  Love him!

    I actually like and understand football but… Darling Husband is such a football fanatic I can’t tolerate it with him.  He’ll watch any game, anywhere!  He’ll watch high school on Fridays, college on Saturdays and professional on Sundays.  Let’s not forget Monday night etc.!  So, since being glued to the couch for days on end isn’t really my idea of a good tme, I’ll only watch a little with him, then I’ll go shopping.  BTW – our local team sucks, so that doesn’t help the matter.

    I’d also say I fall somewhere in between tolerating it and all-out enjoying it. I was never into football before I met Darling Husband, but he’s a hardcore college football fan. I do enjoy going to the games, and I’ll watch them with him at home most times when they’re on TV.

    He got season tickets this year without me, though…I love to use that time to bake and run errands, haha. I like it, but I’ll never be as hardcore of a fan as he is!
