Wife Wants to Know About the Game.
So, I have a ritual during the football season. Pretty much, my whole day is consumed with football, and this year is going to be worse because I am finally going to participate in a fantasy football league. I include my wife in my day, most of the time. Usually, she doesn't like to watch the game because I really get into it.
So here is the problem. She is always complaining that she doesn't understand the game. I try to explain the game when there isn't a game on, but that is pretty damn hard to do. Chalk talk, or a coach's board, doesn't really work either because she gets confused with all the damn X's and O's. So, I try to explain during a game. I see a good play, and I try to explain it to her. She gets that look on her face like I do when she is talking about buying new furniture or curtains... glassy eyed and disinterested.
Anyone have any suggestions? I would suggest that she GOOGLES it, but I know that wouldn't ever happen. Should I just give it up and tell her that one side is trying to move the ball, and the other team is trying to stop them and not get into the specifics?
