I guess this is just a vent. It’s, what – one week into official NFL season and I’m already sick of football.
Don’t get me wrong – I do enjoy an occassional game – but after Darling Husband wanted to watch the entire game last night and his team is playing tonight – it’s TOO MUCH FOOTBALL! AHHH!
For the non-football fans with football lovin’ SO’s – how do YOU survive the season?! 🙂

Thankfully football doesn’t get watched in our house. 🙂

Do stuff that you want to do! I went shopping, got my eyebrows done, did some homework, read, did some house cleaning, took a nap, and finished my laundry lol. If I still want to spend time with him while he’s watching the game, I’ll sit in the living room with him and play my computer game. I don’t hate or love football but sometimes I’ll just put my feet on his lap and ask random questions about the game. He loves answering questions about it..it makes him feel like he’s an expert at something.

Haha we are not Football fans but Futbol fans. So If he starts watching to many random club games, I just go to the gym, take the dog out, call a friend or family member, start a project, shopping etc. lol

I tend to cook on Sundays for the week.
Also, he has promised that unless its a favorite team and there is something I want to do, he will do it.
Yesterday we went to a movie and he missed the first game of the day, but then I cooked, played a computer game and drank wine.

Consider yourself lucky, my Darling Husband watched football ALL DAY yesterday, and plans to watch tonight. We did discuss it before and I told him that was okay for this weekend (it will not be okay every weekend!). But I totally feel your tired of football pain! Yesterday I hung out with one of the wives of another football lover who was at our house and that kept me busy, I also ran some needed errands and while that wasn’t fun it also kept me out of the house and away from all the boys! 🙂 Good Luck!

LOL my SO loves football, I’ve watched more football in the 1+ year that we’ve been dating then I have in my entire life. It’s ok as far as I’m concered not a huge fan and wouldn’t watch it if he wasn’t here. I just make sure that the batteries in my phone are charged and or computer is charged and I surf the web, facebook, etc.

I try to get into it!! My Darling Husband is a HUGE ENORMOUS GIGANTIC Jets fan, and generally watches every other game that’s playing as well. The only way to survive is to join in, or else he whines to me from the couch (in between screaming and cursing at the tv) that I need to come waaaatch and put on my jeeeersey. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. And I’ve found that he generally is actually calmer if I’m the one yelling at the tv. 🙂

I’m with hilsy85 :).
If there is a football game on, whether it be Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday, chances are it is on at our house.
While it REALLY bothered me last year, I can tolerate it now and have gotten better at entertaining myself while he’s watching. I know he really enjoys it when I give commentary and ask him questions about the football in general or the game that is currently on. If there is a team we both like, I’m more than willing to sit down and just watch.
I agree, there is no beating football- so why not learn to like it?
To his credit, he’s really good at not ignoring me and making sure that I still feel loved. He’s also really good about making sure I get to watch my shows that I like as well.

I usually DO end up watching and have fun doing so… but for some reason, I am dreading it tonight. Maybe it’s because he watched the game last night and will again tonight and it’s the back to back games that are killing me.
Last night – I just sat next to him and was on my laptop. I was doing other things but he kept hooting and hollering and telling me to come watch plays… which I really didn’t MIND doing – I enjoyed what I saw… I just don’t want to do it tonight, too!!
Darling Husband and I have been together for almost 6 years and in all seasons past I just get into it to and enjoy the experience…. I don’t know why this season would be any different, but maybe my wife brain is having a harder time embracing it than my Girlfriend brain?! Who knows!
@MrsStormy: is he a Raiders fan by any chance?

@hilsy85: yay Go JETS!
I use to fight it, but the last 2 seasons, I’ve joined in the fun and watch the games with my SO. He watches football pretty much all day so I do my own thing and then join him to watch his team with my jersey on and with some good foods.
You can also get some books or magazines and join him on the couch..
@JeffsWifey: I also ask questions and have learned so much! But only during commercials!
I’ve learned so much that last year I placed 1st in the fantasy leage at work without really trying.. all the guys at work thought I would do bad because I’m a girl.

Okay….and for those of us whose husbands are football/basketball/soccer/tennis etc fans, what do we do? I’m just glad there is no baseball in there. I usually go online and watch movies or read lots and lots of books or I go into the bedroom and call my friends for a long long gossip session.

I’m tired of football too, thanks to tons of facebook status updates. We watch the super bowl together and that’s it. He checks the scores on his phone instead of watching the games… =)

@bRooklynRocks: Thats my DH! Except I have to add baseball to the list =(
Yesterday it was football all day..tonight it’s flipping channels between football and tennis…(I enjoy watching tennis).
I try to keep busy. Yesterday I had a girlfriend over and I helped her with her wedding planning. If I’m not entertained with a friend, then I like to do my nails, take naps..basically..I try to enjoy ‘me time’.
Next Sunday he asked me if he could have a football party at our place, so I’m kinda looking forward to serving snacks and cooking dinner =)
