I like to play sports not watch them! I'd rather be out playing tennis or golf, or basketball or baseball or football, soccer or hockey than watching it! It's more enjoyable to be out on the kayak or strolling the beacehs fishing rod in hand than watching some scmuck doing it on TV!
I am married to someone that hates sports. Makes it a little hard for me to catch the games sometimes...especially when I want to go to our son's football games and he throws a fit about it. So I guess I don't have the men and sports problems. I am the problem in my house. LOL
Hi RedSonja ,thats really interesting ,cuz my hubby likes shopping more than I do. I mean I like it ,but I dont take forever mulling over meat, steak is steak right. Honestly he drives me crazy and I have to fight the urge to say Can we go yet
I'm afraid that is a bad man card shopping example, because all steak is not created steak equal. I definitely hate shopping, but picking out a good cut of meat is very important. Oh, seasoning the meat is too.
Men can watch sports for hours bc they like it, im sure men can ask the same question to women, how can they watch reruns of Americas top model for hours… well plain and simple, because you like it.
See… most boys grow up enjoying the game of football like their dads before them have. Football is male bonding topic. It’s a very physically aggressive sport most men are proud to watch or play. Most women cant understand because their raised by their mothers way of… girly things. I wish I can have more examples but I was raised more by my father then my mother. And because I was raised more by my father I learned to adore boyish things like: football, cars, video games, wrestling, etc.
When it comes to football, I love it. my dad, my bf, my sis, and I sit down eating pizza watching the game. It’s a great bonding experience for everyone. But thankfully for my boyfriend (surprisingly im the one who had to get him into football) I keep up with my team DA BEARS, and not watch any other football games, (well I try to ). But times a changing bc every time I watch a game I see more and more women getting into football, its great.
I guess you could blame me for my guys, and my girls as well, I make the homemade salsa and cook the grilling barbeque stuff, finger foods and sandwiches, "dynamites" and chill the beer, cinnamon hot chocolate....all they have to do is bring in their snuggle blankets and pillows and dad on his three person recliner...nobody moves until halftime to hit the "head" as they say, then it's two + more hours of hollering and huggin' each other...depending on who's playing...
my wife and I watch it, and go to the games, and the races! we have fun. Chili, home made fahitas and or Snacks and cuddle time at home, put the game on, or get tickets and go. we love it. Even go to the Hockey Games, there great.
In my household, I'm actually the bigger sports fan, which actually doesn't say much. However, there are only three sporting events we go out of our way to watch: our local baseball team's home games, the kids' soccer games, and our state's big college rivalry football game. I also enjoy watching sports deemed "less popular" like boxing, hockey, MMA, and fencing. I've pretty much given up on Olympic coverage, as our networks' slavish devotion to gymnastics and track meant historic events like a medal sweep for the US in women's saber went almost completely unreported.
All that being said, watching the games is nowhere near as exciting as actually participating.
for excitement, the fans, the emotions on winning and losing (drama), for the mistakes made by elite athletes so they are like us after all, for the celebrities who attend them and because we have seen most of the "law and order" episodes.
men really loves to win, specially in sports, they really sympathize with their team, (dont talk or disturb them while they are watching sports on tv, lol (you gotta get naked in front of them instead if you want to catch their attention,but mind you nobody cant disturb me if I am watching football on sundays.. LOL
for women out there, when your man is watching sports, thats the time you request for everything like go shopping, ransack their wallets, they will just say yes...and later on, they will be shocked, they were robbed lol
They don't need help....they purposely go out of their way to make sure that they screw up whatever it is that you wanted them to do....so they can go do something they want to, because they know, if you get angry enough...you'll banish them from the activity and do yourself(because the only saying always remains true- if you want something done, you have to do it yourself).
Either way....the men get to do what they want, while the women are stuck doing everything themselves.
Why do people enjoy watching sports so much?I know the same question could be asked of those who enjoy writing or reading, but still, why? I like playing sports, but I just don't understand how you could just watch. Wouldn't you rather be doing it?
Sports enthusiasts - what is your favorite sport of all time and why?I remember growing up watching every sport known to man because my Dad loved sports so much, especially baseball. However, since being married to a man quite opposite of my Dad, who is not such a sports enthusiast, except...
Last time this did not work as all the men came along.... what will happen this time Ladies lets get all the problems of the day off our chest, have a moan about your man, about all the things us females have to put up with day in and day out, see if the men will give us a bit of...
