That was always the case for me... not a fan of any sports, so left to my own devices whilst others watched the footie! Nice limerick, Michelle. Regards, John.

A role reversal for sure. I've heard of women watching with their men, and getting caught up in it, but not this, although I'm sure there are a lot of others out there!.....I only really watch MMA as far as sports, and prefer to record it, so I can pry myself away for my honey!!!!!........Have a great day!!!.........pat (Perfect rhyme for the form by the way. Well done!!!)

Have you tried sitting on his lap? That is certain to kindle an interest in the ups and downs of the game. Aloha! Rico

My husband and I usually go to the movies on Super Bowl Sunday, because the ushers and popcorn people are there waiting, and everyone else is at Super Bowl parties. I recommend it.

Sorry, Caren, but in our house, Super Bowl Sunday is bigger than Christmas!

Fun to see a role reversal though I feel for the poor guy. Good one, Michelle.
