There's Another Man...

...and my husband knows about him. That's right! You heard me correctly! I have a boyfriend! In fact, I have several boyfriends. Scandalous I know, but before you start giving me names of divorce lawyers or therapy groups keep reading! :)

The other men came into my life because my husband is a sports fanatic. He loves all sports (except Nascar). If watching paint dry was a sport, he would watch it on television, comment on it, and yell at the paint if it did not dry fast enough. He love sports!

I am not a huge sports fan. Don't get me wrong-I do like sports, but I am just not that into them. I do enjoy attending sporting events because of the social aspect, and the wonderful people watching. Oh the people watching! However, I would rather watch a Lifetime movie than a football game on television.

In order to be a supportive wife (or a wife that doesn't kill her husband over the remote control), I decided that somehow I needed to make watching sports a little more fun for me. That's when I decided that I would have sports boyfriends. I picked out a few players that I really liked, I deemed them my boyfriends, and now I have someone to cheer for when sporting events are constantly playing on our television.

I choose my boyfriends based on many things, but the most important characteristic in my sports boyfriends is sportsmanship. I want my boyfriend to be one of those guys who seems to know how lucky he is to play a sport that he loves for a living and to get paid a lot of money for it. I don't want a cocky athlete who thinks they can't be touched andwho believes the "game" is lucky to have him play and not that he is lucky to play the "game".

Andruw Jones used to be my baseball boyfriend. However when the Braves traded him, I had to find a new one. Sorry Andruw! I do still care about you though. I often ask my husband how you are doing and get him to check your stats for me. Brian McCann is my current baseball boyfriend! He is a great player and seems to be an all around good guy!

My college football boyfriend-well I went for a coach! Coach Mark Richt is the head coach for The University of Georgia, and he couldn't be any more precious! He is a nice Christian man and a great coach!

I am actually changing professional football boyfriends this year, and I have not picked a new one. I am also taking applications for basketball boyfriends. Any suggestions?

Having a sports boyfriend is fun! It gives me someone to look for and cheer for during a game. It also gives me the opportunity to giggle at the shocked expressions on people's face when my husband or friends ask me how my boyfriends are doing! :)

I leave you this picture of me and Coach Richt! I had the opportunity to meet him one time and made a compete idiot of myself, but at least I got a picture!

I love this idea! I need sports boyfriends. It sounds like our husbands could be related.

I'm the same way! My dad will call me up and fuss about how "my boyfriend" did bad and made the team lose, and I always tell him, "We'll work on that." Haha. Thank you for your sweet wishes, I'm feeling better day by day.

OHMYGOSH I would have died if I met Coach Richt!! I love him! One Sunday after a game we ended up going to the same church his family attends and I felt like I'd seen a celebrity. Of course most people probably felt like that, judging by the crowd around him!

And I'll fight you for Brian! I love him!

My professional football boyfriend is Eli Manning. I secretly love him..
