I don’t know about other girls, but I find it incredibly sexy when a man can spew off sports trivia.
And that is exactly what J did during my birthday dinner tonight at my favorite steakhouse. What made it even more special was that after some supreme pwnage, he proceeded to egg me on.
The Ever-So-Considerate Hubs: And THAT’s why. BAM! (Emeril style)
The Defeated Geek: I apologize for my ignorance. Please forgive me.
The Arrogant Hubs: Maybe I will, maybe I won’t.
The Defensive Geek: Hey! How many other girls do you know recognize, and can tell the difference between the SportsCenter theme music and the Monday Night Football theme?
The Reconsidering Hubs: [pause] I gotta give you that.
The Not-So Defeated Geek: Da-da-daa, da-da-daaa! (to the tune of the SportsCenter theme)
The Mollified Hubs: And that’s why I love you.
The Jubilant Geek: I love you too.
Thank you for a wonderful birthday.
I’m quite sure that this is not a verbatim conversation and mostly likely is stated in jest..but I can’t help but think that it is odd you would feel the need to "apologize for [your] ignorance" with something like that.
Also, being a guy myself, I know quite a few women that would be able to know the difference and are well versed in the wide world of sports. I can’t help but feel a bit insulted for other women from the above statements.
regardless – Happy Birthday
@anon — The conversation above did happen, but in a playful, semi-sarcastic manner. That’s how my husband and I play around. We mock and tease each other mercilessly. There’s no need to feel insulted; it was all done in good fun! In addition, I know plenty of women who are well-versed in sports and the statements were not meant to make any sexist generalizations. Some of my posts may be heartfelt and brutally honest, but others are dripping in sarcasm and plain old silliness.
