Enduring a Day of Sports
played 2 games. The Dallas Cowboys
played today, and the St. Louis Cardinals played. (These happen to be two of my husband’s favorite teams.) So what have I been watching since 3:00 this
afternoon? Well, in between caring for
my girls, socializing with fellow wives at the flag games, cooking dinner, Facebooking, and uploading pictures to my computer…I’ve been watching sports. One after another.
enjoyment of his loves this evening on our shared TV, here were my thoughts.
those 2 female Cowboys fans look unbelievably anxious and totally invested in
this game. Are they
serious? Or are they trying to be
“sporty” for the guys next to them?
3. I’m over these Matthew McConaughey Lincoln commercials. Okay, so he likes to drive, and he’s feeling very pensive and deep today. Got it.
professional baseball players look so sloppy. It’s like they just rolled out of bed and
got on the bus, with their grizzly unkempt beards and cheek full of tobacco.
such a shame we caught up to the live show after DVRing the start of this game,
because now I have to watch the Dodge Dart commercial where the neighbor is
saying “Craig Craig Craig Craig Craig” repeatedly through the window
of the garage. I bet Moms of small
children everywhere despise it as much as I do, because it’s quite reminiscent
of a relentless nagging kids voice.
They are ALL chewing gum. All
the time. For sure all Baseball coaches
everywhere chew gum. I guess, for some, this is to replace chewing tobacco. Or maybe it’s just another one of their many superstitions.
hungry. Again. Apparently the large portion of spaghetti,
meatballs, brussel sprouts and garlic bread that I ate 2 hours ago isn’t going
to be enough for the rapidly growing baby boy in my tummy. I should have some yogurt. Or cheese.
Or….cookies and cream ice cream.
Yes, that’s the one. Done.
sports-sports-sports today, so he just turned on Bravo for me during the
commercial break (of what is turning out to be a very exciting last few innings
for the STL Cardinals). Ah….home sweet
home. Just until the commercial break
is over, of course.
Matthew McConaughey Lincoln commercial. Oooh–that reminds
me! I heard Ellen Degenerous spoofed
one of these. I should find it and
watch it right now! 2 minutes later: I watched it, and laughed so hard that I
cried! I think she is so funny,
always! Click here to watch.
Bottom of the 9th… That would
be encouraging, except that the game is currently tied 4-4. I may have to endure extra innings. Nope! Some guy hit a homerun and the game is O-VER! Hubby is done, and the remote is MINE! Now I just have to decide which low-stress, veg-worthy reality or DIY show I want to watch.
