like Robin Williams and Kurt Russell having the game on in the background while being a date with their wives........ times that proved this being a football fan was a sickness ...and the people (women mostly) you've ticked off...... have you ever pulled a Ray Romano and taped over your wedding video? 2 examples of mine i can think of: finally got that date with a gal i liked, took her out to Mitchells Steakhouse in Hyannis. But it was the Friday night of the last weekend of the season in 1985. In the background in the bar they had the Denver-Seattle game on, if Denver lost, the Patriots were in the playoffs. Needless to say i was useless to her and we never went out again. 1981 : My sisters wedding. Chatham Bars Inn. Im a no-show for most of it. Why? I cant stop hanging out at the lounge because the Patriots-Jets game is on. Why is this SO sick? at the time the Patriots were 1-5. I know you've got much better stories out there!!!
