There have been a lot of football and "favorite team" posts lately. So, I just have to share my story.
Many of you know that I was married before. I was very young when I married the first time. My first husband was very much into sports. ESPN was on all the time. If it wasn't, then there was some type of game on. My family didn't watch sports, so this was new to me. I tried, but I just couldn't get into it at all.
We had one TV in our single-wide trailor. So, being bored just became my way of life. For two years I saw no movies or watched no TV shows other than Martin (of all shows!). And, it grew worse. At first it was baseball, football, and basketball. Then, just to irritate me (I think), he started watching hockey, golf, soccer, etc, etc. If it was competitive, it was on!
My life was SO miserable.
*Fortunately, he cheated on me and our marriage ended. I didn't know it at the time, but that was the best thing that ever happened to me.
All of a sudden I got my life back and was able to control the remote!
Years later, I met Michael. We were friends at first and in a conversation he mentioned that he wasn't a sports fan. He just wasn't interested in sports of any kind. I proposed on the spot. We've been happy ever since!
Well, that's not quite how it went. But I did say, "Really!? Will you marry me?!" haha
So, we may not be "cool". Perhaps you think we are lame. We don't think badly of anyone that has a favorite team or a favorite sport.
But, I think you'll agree that we are made for each other!
Mike + Dawn = 4 Ever
*See comments for a note about my ex.
