How interested is your significant other in fantasy baseball

Postby EricF » Fri Jun 06, 2003 4:17 pm

This is the question of the week in SportsWeekly the week of June 4-10.

I'll go first.

My wife is very nice, and doesn't say much, but I think she secretly hates my involvement in fantasy baseball. When I'm checking the team's performance, she heads for the TV, or sometimes goes to sleep. She doesn't like the time it takes from her, so sometimes I need to put aside my intense interest in fantasy baseball so I can give her some priority time. But it's hard sometimes when you're wondering whether your slightly injured player is going to be in the lineup and you want to make a change if he's sitting out.

It's worse than ZERO interest. It's so bad, that I'm STRONGLY considering retiring from fantasy sports altogether. Sucks because I have a 60% 1st place rate. Which is crazy
The key to Fantasy Sports is NOT about Sports but rather the "manipulation of numbers" in your favor

I've recieved positive responses when it comes to fantasy baseball. I'm in a super-serious league with a bunch of my close friends, and sometimes our league-trash-talk comes up in everyday conversation. I made it pretty clear to my girlfriend that I need to show up all my friends by kicking butt in the league... and I think she understands when she hears my buddies mention it all the time. She's got two older brothers that are also fantasy players, and I'm kicking their butt around in another league... that makes her proud....

My girlfriend is very cool with it. When I won my basketball league, she went out and bought me a basketball as a trophy and wrote my name and "1st place Rochester Hardcore Fantasy Basketball". I thought that was pretty cool. Shes always asking me how my teams are doing. I think she secretly wants to join, even though she knows nothing about sports.

Might I suggest Divorce as another option :-B (God I hope my wife dont read this)

Mrs. DHC is really good with fantasy sports. She doesnt play baseball, but does play football, and does very well with two league titles to her credit!

Zero interest, and she does sometimes get annoyed with how much time I spend on it. I do know she likes to hear about it when I'm trouncing the rest of the league! She knows everyone in the league, so she likes when I win.

I'm doing great right now, but it's still early.

My wife thinks I'm gay because I talk baseball on the phone so much with one of the guys in my league.

My wife accepts it for the most part that I spend so much time with Fantasy Baseball/Football. She does get irritated sometimes though! She gossiped too her frend one time that she bent over in front of me (in her dress) with no undies on while I was on the puter....and I did not even flinch. LOL! I don't remember that honestly.....I must have been in serious trade discussions! LOL!

If your wife is in need of attention, feel free to give her my number. If a pretty panti-less woman bends over anywhere near me, I will always take notice!

My girlfriend could care less, I don't talk about fantasy stuff to her because I know she doesn't care, and she doesn't tell me about the cute new eye liner she got, because I don't care :-)
