It isn’t fair to call this odd, let’s just say that it is unconventional. My wife loves to watch her Patriots play football. I, on the other hand, am not that much into sports. Never have been. So, it was odd when I was told that during the regular season, game days were off limits. It is still kind of odd now, a few years later.

I don’t shy away from admitting she is the football fan. I think it is one of those things that makes us the cool couple that we are. She didn’t ask me to change, and embrace it, only to be aware of the fact that she is a fan and there will be certain occasions where that will take precedence. No problem.

That being said, I have started to become more involved in learning about the sport and rooting for the Patriots myself. Granted, it was fairly easy for me to do this because LA had no team for so long. Now, however, it seems like we are going to be getting 2 of them. Whatever, my loyalty has been established. Go Pats!
