FEELING THE PAIN — I started dating my wife about a month before the pandemic took hold.
That means the first few months of the relationship was mostly filled with hikes, trips to the lake and hanging out in parks.
Not included: My slightly irrational feelings toward sports teams. By the time those really surfaced again, she was already committed to me to put up with them.
I'm not saying the pandemic was the reason I'm married, but after watching this Bears fan break down over his team's most recent loss, I can't completely rule that out either.
Just some absolute top-tier moments here:
- "I've only known you for two months, this has been my team for 22 years!" is an all-time classic sports/relationship quote.
- "They cheated! We would have won; they cheated" is far too relatable to every irrational fan.
- "You're not hot with all that stuff on?" is a Grade A-level roast
- So is: "What about the wristband? You act like they are gonna throw you in the game"
It's been a couple decades since I've gotten this emotional over a team, but I still felt for this guy. Caring way too much about a terrible team pretty much sums up my life as a sports fan, and probably always will. The relationship with my wife has had a much better track record.
So keep your head up, Mr. Bears fan. Hopefully your two-month relationship works out more than your 22-year-old sports one has.
