  • Contrast and Compare: HGTV and Football

    December 5, 2006

    Apparently there was some sort of football game or whatever on Sunday and people around here who are into that kind of thing were all jazzed up because the Cowboys won. I don’t know.

    So by Monday, after I’d listened to 48 straight hours of some Bubba on the the television or car radio say the word “cowboy” about billion times, I turned to Antique Daddy and said, “Goodnight, how much is there to say about one football game? Hour after hour, show after show they just keep talking. It’s been said already for Pete’s sake.”

    And he paused for a minute and said, “Yeah. Sorta like HGTV.”

      My husband would say,”The truth hurts, dear.”

      After which I’d smack him to SHOW him what hurts.

      I WANT MY HGTV!!!

      Oh, I would have to agree with AD on this one. However, I do wish that they would just shut up and let us watch the plays some times without all the statistics, counteractive statements and second guessing… But still, I love me some football!

      I’m laughing so hard because Husband and I had this exact conversation this weekend but about a different game. How bizarre is that? Freakin’ me out.

      Husbands might denigrate HGTV, but they LOVE their HDTV on which they see the nose hairs of their favorite football players. I stay up late at night after the football and golf are over and watch HGTV — it’s never the same old thing. My favorite is “Designed to Sell” and my hubby loves it when we sell a home and the decorating ideas make us a big profit. Football has never made us a dime!

      My husband lives and dies by whether the Cowboys win or loose. Oh! The mood swings!

      (Veronica says nothing, but smiles smugly because her husband hates professional sports.)

      This time of year, I’m addicted to the Food Network, and the males in my house wonder how many gingerbread house competitions we can stand. So we all have our seasons, I guess!

      Get with it, Antique Daddy.
      The game would have been impossible to enjoy in a room without antique taupe paint and vanilla cream trim.
