A shout out

My wife is the coolest lady in the world.

She calls me this morning at 9:21 a.m. with the following:

“We play this week. Find us a sports bar in Raleigh. I promise I’ll be nice this time.”

She’s referring to the beatdown and subsequent trash-talking session I had to endure back in week two where she not only ripped my underwhelming fantasy football team, but ragged me about it in front of my friend Tina and my former friend, Bryan Hanks.

(Editor’s note: I say former because the man won’t return my phone calls anymore. Clearly I lack the stature needed to converse with editors-in-chief)

But even though she was a little hard on me that day, I feel compelled to point out that my wife rocks.

I listen to stories every day about how some of my friends don’t like what their wives make them do. A lot of people spend a lot of time complaining about marriage.

Not me. My wife is the best. She’s smart, marrying me notwithstanding. She’s beautiful. She’s a good mother.

And she likes sitting in sports bars watching football.

What could be better?

    […] one of the state’s best writers (he has the hardware to prove it!), waxes poetic about his awesome wife in his latest post. Evidently, she’s better than he in fantasy football, but he can accept it. Also, RC, sorry […]

    Another reason why guys like us always wind up with the best women.
    Your post reminds me of a time I was watching a Bills game a few years ago when I mentioned Aaron Schobel is the best #94 on the team since Mark Pike. My wife replied, “didn’t he play special teams back in the day?”

    I haven’t picked up my jaw off the floor since.
