- oh, the NFL -


I love sports...I really do. I have always been a "tomboy" and have always loved the outdoors and sports. In our house, NFL is king...it's what we follow the most. Matt and I will watch any sports, but we don't follow and watch anything as closely as the NFL. Sundays are footballs days in our house, and I love it. I love the beer drinking, the slightly mostly unhealthy snacking, and the great games.

And of course, we have a home team that we follow....that we love...we bleed their team colors...we're loyal fans. BUT, there is such a big difference between me and my hubby when we  watch our football team. Yes folks, I love my football team. But my husband...oh my husband...he gets so overly emotional about our home team, it's crazy! I just can't relate. I mean, when our team loses, I'm disappointed. But when our team loses, my hubby is devastated....devastated! The NFL brings out emotions in my husband (both happy and upset) that I only see during football season.

I'm not saying it's a female vs. male thing. I know a lot of females out there that are emotionally crazy about their teams. But in general, I think it's more common that it's the men out there that get a little "irrational" about sports.

Does anyone else out there have a husband/boyfriend that is absolutely bonkers when it comes to their sports team?

For me it's the NFL. For hubs, it's the NHL.

I'm one of the crazy females that are way too emotionally involved with my NFL team! haha I'm the one yelling at the tv and I'm the one that gets butthurt all week long if my team loses..

We don't have an NFL team in Oregon so since I don't care about any of the teams, I get so bored when my husband watches it! I'm a huge fan of college football and the NBA though. I love my Portland Trailblazers!

Sometimes I think the whole day is shot if the Hokies lose....and then he talks about it....for days.

Trevor's not actually like that (at all!!) but growing up, my dad and brothers were ridiculously into their sports teams. NHL all the way in my house (we're Canadian, so it has to be hockey, right?! haha)

Bahahaha - Yes, Chris can be. I ignore him when he is insane or mad someone lost. :)

my husband is very attached to his team but fortunately he isn't all depressed when his team loses, he is bummed but not all bummed out thank goodness!

I can't say that I am a real NFL fan, but I really enjoy the Superbowl.

what team do you guys follow? we both get very upset if the Packers lose. Like bad. But my husband is obsessed with Fantasy Football and when he loses he takes it way more seriously than i do. :)

Oh my gosh! My husband is exactly the same way. I actually wrote a post about it here earlier in the season. http://luvinmylabs.blogspot.com/2012/09/football-season-ugh.html

One thing my husband is good at is staying emotionally undrained when his team loses...could come from having played for most of his life...me on the other hand...I get so devastated like I have a stake in the team or athlete...more so with tennis than football. It's sad! Fun topic for sure!
