Amuse me!

My husband, Wayne, used to play semi-pro hockey.
Sadly, this was long before I came into his life.
Too bad.
I think it’s hot.

So the other day we somehow got onto the topic of him playing hockey again.
I said, “You should do it. I’d go and watch you. I’d hold up a sign in the stands that says ‘GO BABY!’ Wouldn’t that be fun?”

“Not really,” he replies.

“Really? It would be fun!”

Then I break into a beat: Go baby! Go baby!

“Doesn’t that sound like fun?”

“Not really,” he says again.

“Come on! Then your team mates would look up into the stands and say, “Who is that chick up holding the ‘GO BABY!’ sign?” And you could tell them, “That’s my wife,” and then they would say, “That’s your wife?” and you could say, “Yup,” and they would say, “You get to tap that ass every night?” and you could say, “Not every night. Only the nights that I don’t fall asleep on the couch.” And they would say, “If I had a wife that looked like that, I’d be tapping that ass every night.” And you could say…”

But he’s not listening anymore.

He’s walking down the hallway.

So I yell out, “So what do you think? You gonna play hockey again? I need some notice so I can get working on my ‘GO BABY!’ sign.”

He doesn’t answer.

Well I think it would be fun.

I can tell he’s smiling on the inside.

    Wish someone would make me a sign. I wouldn't even care what it said. Any kind of encouragement would be frickin awesome…

    “Sarah, you're doing ok”

    “You're not dead yet – good job!”

    “You got out of bed – woohoo!”

    I need a personal cheerleading section.

    Hell, I'd settle for a sign. “Are you getting laid tonight?” with a little sliding indicator that pointed to a 'yes' or a 'no.' It would make relationships SO much easier…

    When you're ruling the world, then he'll wish he had gone back to playing hockey. Of course, by then you can just order it. Make him play goalie, just to teach him a lesson!

    I'm sure he could be persuaded if you indulged in a little role play …

    “Oh my. What a fine big stick you have…”

    Because well it's all about you even when you are trying to be about him, right? That's okay I get it. He should play hockey just so you get to be the hot hockey wife. I mean really he would if he really cared.

    I'm sure he's smiling every single day knowing he's got you to tap anytime!!! You sexy bitch!

    If I were your husband I would be standing on the ice and pointing to you and say, “That is mine. I tap it as often as I like. And to prove my loyalty to the team, y'all can have some, too. Go Baby!”

    LAWLZ to the “when I don't fall asleep on the couch.” What is it with men and their couch sleeps? He misses when we worked on different rotations so he could get his couch sleeping time in.

    How can your husband keep a straight face with you around? lol And he TOTALLY would say all of those things if you cheered him on like that.

    And mine went to bed at 9:30 tonight. What the hell? We're not that old. Someone needs to start eating his Wheaties.

    Uh, if you scream out “Go Baby, Go Baby” in a hot, rhythmic beat at any hockey game, some poor distracted goalie is gonna take a puck in the eye.

  25. powdergirl
    March 1, 2011 | 7:27 am

    Do you mean to say that he doesn't play hockey AT ALL anymore?

    Thats just plain un-Canadian… tsk.

    Such a spunky wife you are….

    Truthfully, I think you just want the hot sex after he wins a game…and you want to be wearing the Tee Shirt with arrow pointing at him….


    We know where the puck resides…

    I think you annoy your husband much in the same way that I annoy mine. Not that you turn things that are about HIM into being about YOU.

    As I tell my husband, “It's ALL about me! All day, every day!”

    So far?

    This works for us.

    I was a semi-pro soccer player and somehow the thought of my wife standing up there cheering me on is:not cool. I don't know why so I kinda understand your hubby's lament. Even if he gets to “tap” on his bedroom nights

    Would you be satisfied if he just wore the uniform around the house? I'm sure that you could still make a sign and cheer him on there.

    Every time I think of Hockey I think of Chris Pronger and how I'd totally let him 'tap' me! Except that guy is so massive that he'd probably split me like a log. I saw him at the mall one day and I kinda sorta come up a little taller than his waist. I know!

  49. 2busy
    March 1, 2011 | 4:29 pm

    You have me laughing so hard! I'd love my husband to put on his Marine Corps fatigues again years later That was pretty hot, but he wouldn't fit in them.

  50. Jumble Mash
    March 1, 2011 | 4:45 pm

    OOOO! can I make a sign that says Go Sandra's Baby and stand next to you?!?!

  51. Big Fat Gini
    March 1, 2011 | 5:05 pm

    I'm laughing, mostly because you're hysterical, but also because I picture it going this way in my house…

    “Yeah, that's my wife alright. I get to tap that big ass every night!”

    And his teammates would be all like, “Um. Okay.”

    Awkward silence.

  52. myevil3yearold
    March 1, 2011 | 5:52 pm

    You are hysterical, I love it!

    He totally should do it so you can get yourself a supercute cheerleading outfit to wear.

    Would this be like a for fun older guys team? I think it would be a good idea.
    the sportsman still plays basketball, golf, volleyball, and some softball.
    and hes 36.
    your never too young to hang with the boys and play some.

  56. Holly Ruggiero
    March 1, 2011 | 8:57 pm

    How can he resist that offer? Maybe you had better work on that sign just in case.

  57. On My Soapbox
    March 1, 2011 | 9:52 pm

    I think you should make a sign anyway. Hide it under the bed, and pull out the sign at the moment you deem appropriate….

    March 1, 2011 | 10:36 pm

    This is exactly the type of conversations the husband and I have. Like the time I asked him if he'd still be with me if he found out we were siblings. He said no. My feelings were hurt.

    March 2, 2011 | 1:03 am

    Geez, how old is he though? I'd never let my husband start playing hockey again, unless it was with a strap-on defibrillator. (agreed on that tapping that ass every night thing though).

  61. Snake
    March 2, 2011 | 1:48 am

  62. WhisperingWriter
    March 2, 2011 | 2:01 am

    Make the sign anyway. It'll still be funny.

    Maybe I'll make a GO BABY sign for when my husband comes back from Korea. He'd probably turn around and get back on the plane.

    We have had this exact same conversation but for soccer…

    But in his head, I was wearing his jersey and um, not much else…

    In my head, I was thinking I could get a night of peace once a week…

    so maybe this wasn't the EXACT same conversation…

    March 2, 2011 | 2:46 am

    oh yeah, he's not gonna sleep on the couch anymore. way to work it, girl.

  66. Crystal Escobar
    March 2, 2011 | 5:39 am

    haha, that is so funny. I could totally picture it and I loved how HE'S the one falling asleep early at night. Usually it's the women, and men are always complaining they don't get enough action.

  67. Red Shoes
    March 2, 2011 | 6:08 am

    Hell… go ahead and make the sign anyway… and have it laying around the house…

    You could also go and buy yerself a cheerleader's outfit to complete the look. Pom-Poms maybe a bit over the top though…

    Go Baby!!! Go Do it!!!

    I would coz I think hockey is HOT too.

  69. The Blue Zoo
    March 2, 2011 | 7:19 am

    You should totally make the sign. You could stand in the driveway holding it when he gets home from work, hold it and cheer when he pumps the gas, or does the dishes – I think Im going to make a sign for my husband too!

  70. Mamarazzi

    A major problem in my life with men has been when they don't say anything and I assume the wrong thing and go off in the wrong direction.
    At least you are smart enough to tell him you need notice to make your sign.
    I know I know the assuming is all my part in it. XD
