I always knew my wife just didn't get it when it came to certain sports like football. Today, I learned just how true that is while watching the Indianapolis Colts attempt to continue their undefeated season. It all started at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Wife: Who is that getting off the ground? (Referring to Ladanian Thomlinson) Is that the quarterback?
Me: Umm, no...
Wife: Well, then why do they keep picking him up off the ground?
Me: Because he keeps getting knocked down.
Wife: So, are we rooting for South Dakota or Indiana?
Me: Umm, San Diego and Indianapolis.
Wife: Well, same initials.
Wife: Is this college or professional? (As game fades to commercial)
Me: Don't you remember going to the UM game with me?
Wife: Yeah. What does that have to do with anything?
Me: Do you remember what day of the week that was on?
Wife: No, why would I?
Me: Because until bowl season, all college games are typically on Saturday and all pro games are on Sunday...
Wife: Yeah, so?
Me: Well, it's Sunday, which implies...
Wife: Why would you expect me to know that?
Me: I wouldn't, but I would have thought you'd have picked up the hints such as no "University" in the team names and that when we went to commercial they promoted "NFL on CBS"...
Wife: I used to think it was the game I didn't like...now I know it to be you...
