I have been anxiously awaiting the beginning of football season!!!! Sadly though, my husband, told me last night he had decided there were other tasks, hobbies, whatever that he wanted to spend his time on this year!! WHAT!!!! THIS CANNOT BE!!!! DO WE NEED COUNSELING!!!! DOES HE HAVE A FEVER!!!! I felt like the wind had been knocked out of me. We went to every home game last year at THE University of Oklahoma and up until this year we've gone to the first home game since we've lived in the Moore/Norman area. I thought it had become a deep family tradition!!! He told me last night during this kick-in-the-stomach conversation that he felt the football game took up too much of his Saturday and he would rather spend his money elsewhere! Of course it does but that is just part of the time of year we are in!! I'm crushed! I know he has deer season on his mind and he just bought a new bow for hunting but come on. WHAT IS HAPPENING???!!! Before you know it, he may forbid all Fall decor in our house!!! :) He will be an OU alum in April 09 so how can he be having these crazy thoughts!!!!

Due to family commitments and trying to squeeze in as much time with my cousin before he lives for Kuwait, we will be in Ada on Saturday. But Bryan's parents are getting the OU game on Pay Per View. I'm so very thankful. But it just won't be the same. Oh, I'll so miss the football nachos. I have a tradition that I cannot have nachoes until OU scores a touchdown and depending on the opponent, they have to be 2 touchdowns ahead!!!!

I think I am now a football loner in my own family!!! Please think of me every Saturday morning as I sit on my love seat (there won't be much love; ha ha) watching ESPN Game Day and college football all by my lonesome.

I did prepare Bryan that he will have to face the fact, I will go to games without him and I'll be okay. After all, he is going to sit in the deer stand by himself!! And I think my OU gear will look a lot prettier than stinky old camo!!!

JULIE - tell Bryan I am VERY disappointed in him. I don't know what I'd do if Scott suddenly decided he didn't want to go to games. (He said all season last year that if we didn't get a new coach this year - we would not get season tickets this year and I was just beside myself.)
That is such a cute picture of you and Bryan!!!

Megan L Hutchings said...

I agree with Kelly! Tell him all of the blogging world is disappointed in his lack of school spirit. What is he thinking?!?!

MiMi said...

What a cute picture of the 2 of you! Ya'll look like the picture of team spirit!
Maybe Bryan will have a change of heart, but if not, thank goodness for ESPN!

That's all I've got to say about that:)!

Love the pic!

Sorry I've been MIA. Hopefully I'm back until the next move:)

Laura said...

What is your man thinking?!?!!? Did he get bonked on the head?! No football?! That would be a nightmare in our house, too!!

Can you find some girlfriends to go with?

Kim said...

OK, Juile count me in! I will gladly take his place at the games with you!! We are already planning our season out. BOOMER SOONER!!!

Megan said...

HAHA! This made me laugh because there are so many wives who would LOVE for their husbands to say this to them :-) But I do feel your pain! What a cute picture!

Melissa said...

It's like the twilight zone!! How sad! Though I can see the side of going hunting too. I enjoy them both! You need to shoot a deer this season!!

petrii said...

Kristen said...

I can't believe it! Bless you heart...I know your love for the Sooners! :(

Leigh Ann said...

I love that picture of you and Bryan. Can you blow that up real big where he has to see it everyday and then maybe he'll miss it?

Heather said...

Despite my intense hatred for the sooners, (since I went to THE university in oklahoma!!! ha!) I must admit that is a GREAT pic of you guys....and I love football season so much that I am sad for you if yours is disappointedly less. :( You know we must be good friends when I am having sympathy for a sooner fan!!! :)
P.S. Go Pokes! :)

Oh my gosh, I can't believe Bryan doesn't want to go to the games.
Poor Julie!
I got to go Saturday. It wasn't much of a game, but the atmosphere is always so much fun.
I took so many pictures and even videos. Kristen wondered if I even watched the game. ;)
My husband hunts too. In fact we were out on the land where he hunts and has food plots ??? and in the distance last night we saw 11 or 12 deer! He was so excited.
I hope you get to go to a few games with or without Bryan....hopefully with. Maybe he was just having a moment and will come to his senses. That was cute about the love seat.
I sent you an e-mail about lunch this Sat.
Talk to you soon.
