Re: Three Survival Keys for the Married Sports Gamer

Tiger Woods is the only sports game I can convince the wife to play with me. She was more concerned with what her character was wearing than the clubs in the bag. I was sitting there staring at the screen the other day trying to decide which C to offer my last scholarship to. I turned to the wife who was checking email on her laptop and said, "Honey, what do you think? The 7 footer from Serbia who can't shoot or the guard from Atlanta?" Without looking up, she says "The guy from Serbia probably can't speak much english so he'll be harder to coach, right?" I got a good laugh out of it...

and then took the guard from Atlanta...

That is funny and true. I been Married for 7yrs now, and the first yera was an up hill climb. I was obsessed with gaming and it hurt my Marriage, for a little. Even choosing the game or her. That was hard scince all I did growing up was play sports and video games.But I did a shrewed thing that turned it all around. I introduced her to The SIms, Now she is an avid gamer. SHe watches me sometimes play online games. We have a Daughter of seven months, and she takes alot of time but during naps and bedtime, We sneak in some game playing. Alot of you guys have some great gals just like mine, you just have to find her game she will play or enjoy watching. Funny thing is guess who's staying up till 2 am playing. This really hit home with me and alot of the post were great.

Re: Three Survival Keys for the Married Sports Gamer

Good article, but tough to find "appropriate gaming time".

Re: Three Survival Keys for the Married Sports Gamer

Lately, I have had a hard time getting quality gaming time. I usually get home before my wife, but it's not enough time to get in a game of NBA 2k9, College Hoops, etc. With basketball on Tuesdays and Thursdays, those nights are pretty much out. My best chance during the week for gaming is when her friends call her. As soon as she picks up the phone, I head upstairs to my man cave. Saturday mornings are usually the best time since she likes to sleep in and I'm usually up pretty early, unless we were out late the night before. The rest of the weekend is hit or miss.

A+

That's the funniest thing I've read on here in ages.

Not married (yet!), but living with my girlfriend the last few months, I can get a feel for when to game and when to not game. Good thing the girlfriend likes to watch shows, a lot of them online (One Tree Hill, Grey's Anatomy, etc) so that's when I put in the iPod and flip on the PS3 or XBOX. Can no longer game as I please but it's probably better for my health . And in fact, it may make the games more rewarding to play.
