Anyone else here NOT a sports widow?

I'm lucky in that my DH isn't into sports very much because I am not either. Anyone else like this? Don't worry, he has his own obsessions that tie up his time, just not sports.

  • I'm very lucky with this, also. Though I do have to admit, we're all soccer fans here. We just don't obsess over it or watch it all the time, and when we do watch, it's usually as a family.

  • I am lucky in this as well. My husband really isnt into sports. Like yours he does have other obsessions though. He does watch Nascar when it is on, but he isnt religious about that either.

  • Oh, my husband is the ultimate sports fan, and i on the other hand, am not. On our first date we played a game of trivial pursuit which ended with me only asking the orange sports questions because I was so amazed he knew every single one of them!

    I now have more appreciation for the world of sports since ESPN is on all the time! I do get aggravated how serious these reporters and interviewers try to make soinso's free throw or who will be drafted. Obviously these guys do forget it's just a game! ;)

  • I'm not a sports widow at all. We both love NASCAR & football. So, we enjoy watching it together.

  • My husband can't sit still and watch sports because he can't handle not being productive for that long. I'm not a sports widow, but my husband works all the time. We just returned from a mini vacation, and he found a wifi spot to work while I wandered through the shops by myself.

  • My hubby thinks sports are "boring and stupid" (his words not mine). I will, on occasion watch a Penguins game, but he gets annoyed and does something else.

  • No. Just a computer widow.

  • No, my husband isn't into sports at all. At least not real ones...he does enjoy archery and golf on the Wii, lol.
