Truth Is: I’m still bummed about LSU.
Truth Is: I shouldn’t be bummed—the only game they lost was to Bama (who they already defeated once during the season) in the National Championship. Otherwise, they had an undefeated regular season and won the SEC Championship. Clearly, I’m being selfish.
Truth Is: A** Football Dude was convinced I “wanted” him and now he’s got his boxers in a wad. Um, I was talking football, and ONLY football. Please, someone, tell me how football talk translates to “I want you?”
Is there some secret sports code guy talk I’m unaware of? Do words like offense, defense, option, pass, screen, trick play, and quarterback have double secret meanings?
How do things like “Bama is b*&$@-slapping us!” “Lee can throw downfield—put him in, take some shots!” and "That's freaking holding!!!" translate to “Please, take me, I’m yours?!”
And just to clarify, I did not put any spin on how I said anything. I didn’t emphasize certain words or give some stupid sexy wink-eye. Like I’ve said, when I’m in the game, I’m in the game—flirting is the last thing on my mind…I’m there for my team and that’s it.
BFF finds me totally hilarious when I watch football, but, then, he’s a fellow football fanatic, so he gets it.
So, what is it? Is it so rare to hear a girl talk sports that certain guys think we’re just doing that to impress them, ergo it must be flirting-sex-talk couched in football terms? I just don’t get it.
Clarification: The following commercial aired a while back—when my Mom, Dad, and friends first saw it, they laughed and pointed to me saying, “That’s you!” When you first get to know me, you might think I’m a lot like the first part of the video (the clueless girl). Then, you learn I’m much more like the second part of the commercial (the, um, sports fan girl).
So, just to clarify, here's an ad that gives you a pretty good idea of how I am when I watch sports.
