What Every Woman Must Know About Football And Marriage

Feb 2, 2008
My best friend forever Megan, got married last year. Believe me, I tried to talk her out of it; Or I at least advised her to wait awhile longer before taking the plunge.

She was in love though, at least with the idea of marriage. Scott, her husband is also a long time friend of mine. In fact, I introduced the two.

After a three month world wind romance, they announced their engagement at a dinner party I was having, ironically, to deliver some good news of my own, but more on that later. Anyway, the short amount of time between the day they met and the day they became engaged, was not why I advised against the two tying the knot. It was the actual date of the wedding.

They were to be wed in just a few weeks and not one moment of their courtship had, or would have, fallen during football season.

American football is a rite of passage for most men. In fact, most men spend more time and effort developing their relationship with football than they would ever think to with their significant other. It's just the way it works, and believe me, it as deep, intimate and very personal relationship!

If you have not spent time with your man during the rutting season, you could be in for a real eye opener. Language you may never have heard come out of his mouth before, and a sudden and complete disregard for your feelings, especially on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and sometimes Thursdays, could be a rude awakening as to the monster that really lies beneath that coat of shining armor.

Not all men fall victim to the call of the wild and are able to keep this temptress in check. You have no idea however, if your man is one of the very few who are immune to the intoxicating allure of a bunch of fat men running around in tights slapping each other on the rear ends. It's best not to take this chance.

Football brings out the absolute worst in a man, even more so than him playing a round of golf and suddenly developing what they like to call the "Shanks".

If you can travel blissfully through the months of August-February, the absolute height of football season, and come out the other side having not vomited at his atrocious behavior or that of his friends, who until the weather began to turn cooler, you never even knew existed, well then you have my blessing.

One quick tip if you are so head over heals in love that you just can't wait until football season comes around to get a complete picture of the man you intend to spend the rest of your life with, there's always this thing called the NFL draft. It's sometime in April and ESPN and the NFL network devote about a 1000 hours to the whole stupid thing. If your man blocks off that weekend as a "no date" zone, your liable to be in for some very stormy weather come the final days of summer.

My advice, and I speak from experience here, is that if your guy actually watches more than a couple of hours of the NFL draft, consider it a symptom of horrible and debilitating things to come. If your man is currently a social drinker, he won't be come kick off so consider the condition terminal.

Oh, my good news? The Washington Redskins reported that their ancient and out of touch coach was resigning and possibly, just possibly the team could finally remove their heads from their oversized butts and actually start winning for a change!! I'm interested to see what they intend to do in the draft this year.
