It’s football season folks and being from Pittsburgh that means nothing other than our Steelers exist for 4 hours on a Sunday or Monday night. That said, during the season I watch most of the games with my friends, with the exception of BIG GAMES, I like to watch big games by myself. Yesterday was a big game; it was the Steelers against the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. The Patriots have denied our beloved Steelers the pleasures of a Super Bowl appearance a couple of times over the last few years, so they are becoming a huge rival for us. We played them last year, during the regular season we beat them, but when it came to the AFC Championship game they crushed us. We lost today in a thriller. I’m hoping that things will be played out in reverse this year, Steelers lose the regular season game and win the AFC championship game (if we get there). Super Bowl here we come.
Anyway, the reason for my post is to thank my wife publicly for being an understanding wife to a football fanatic. The game yesterday started at 4:15pm, so it was close to dinner time. At 4:00pm I locked myself in our bedroom so that I would not be disturbed by my kids who were a little rambunctious that day. Not only did my wife watch our kids for those four hours and make dinner, but at about 5:30 she walked into the bedroom holding in one hand a plate of meatloaf with mashed potatoes and a vegetable medley and in the other a cold beer. I was in HEAVAN, the fact that she watched the kids, prepared a wonderful dinner and brought it to me was just over the top. She did all this after I served up the last of her ice cream to my daughter earlier in the day. One thing that I have learned in marriage is that you never mess with your wife’s ice cream.
So I just wanted to give my wife a big THANK YOU.
Yeah yeah, for all you guys out there, my wife is taken, but please feel free to print this post to show to your significant others. They soon may be as wonderful as mine. lol
