My Wife Is Funny

Yesterday, we watched a great Monday Night Football game.
She’s from Dallas, so naturally, she likes the Cowboys. I hate the Cowboys. So naturally, I was rooting for the Eagles to win. Even though I don’t like the Eagles either. (Redskins fan here.)

In the middle of the game, she asks me why do I dislike the Cowboys so much. I just do. I never liked them. I don’t like Jerry Jones. I don’t like Emmitt Smith, though I don’t mind Irvin and Aikman. I don’t like the fact that they think that they are “America’s Team.” I just don’t like them. And I didn’t know how to really explain my dislike of the Cowboys to her.

Then she asked me this. She said, couldn’t you just switch your loyalties to the Cowboys so that we can be a Cowboys family? I started laughing.
She was serious, apparently.
I told her that I couldn’t “switch” my loyalties to the Cowboys. How ridiculous is that?
“Not even for me?”
Then I asked, well, since you don’t know much about football to begin with, why not become a Redskins fan?

I don’t think she talked to me much for the rest of the game.
But I’m sorry. Ask me anything else, but I just can’t, just can’t picture myself ever liking the Cowboys.

  1. My wife asked me the other night if I want to be right or be happy. I told her that I don’t think those should be my only two options, which is of course right. And I’m not happy.

  2. I can’t help but think that for the sake of your marriage you should be able to at least not root against the Cowboys just because… when you don’t even like the other team… I mean root against them like crazy next week when they play the Redskins, but maybe learn not to hate them in general if that is your wife’s team… at least that is what I have tried to do as an Oklahoma Sooners fan with Oklahoma State (my wife graduated from OSU and I graduated from OU)

    On another note, you can also take consolation from the fact that it doesn’t really matter how much you hate them… they just look really good. And maybe you just shouldn’t watch them play the Redskins next week, cause the Redskins are going to lose. (I don’t know where that came from… I’m just feeling the need to push your buttons this morning. Sorry in advance.)
