Love the 2nd time around
Today’s topic, love the second time around, is one that I am so excited to write about. Because as a Hoosier (one living in Indiana), I am experiencing love the 2nd time around today (Sunday). I know, if you aren’t from around this neck of the woods, you have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, and for that group of people, I offer up this clarification…
IT’S SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!!!!!!!
The past two weeks have been the longest two weeks ever for me. The anticipation of today’s game is killing me! I wish I had a crystal ball and could predict the future. Ok, maybe not the future in a sense of the next 5 years, but future in a sense of the next 10 hours would be AWESOME! Can I get an amen?
In fact when I think of, love the 2nd time around in a sense that I am comparing it to the Indianapolis Colts, it’s almost like a “remarriage” of sorts. We, Colts fans, are just looking for our happily ever after, for the 2nd time. But just like a remarriage, winning our second Superbowl is probably a little more difficult than winning the first. I don’t know this for sure. In fact, I’m sure there are legitimate statistics on this stuff out there, but frankly, I’m just too lazy to go look them up.
As I was thinking about the 2nd time around I started thinking that some relationships have to be suffering from the seasonal football stress about now. I’m sure there are men out there who have done nothing but focus solely on football since October and their wives and girlfriends are probably at their wits end by now. So this got me thinking that there has got to be a way that football and the SuperBowl can help couples work towards happier more meaningful relationships that can, in turn, lead to a better love life.
I mean there has to be a way for football fanatics in long term relationships to score points with the women they love. There has to be a way for football to help improve relationships…there just has to be.
So gentlemen to help you stop fumbling your way through relationships and start scoring points with the opposite sex! Here is some help especially for you! I have found it…the book for you. It’s called Winning Points with the Love in Your Life One Touchdown at a Time by Jaci Rae. Ms. Rae is a relationship therapist who has figured things out for the men in our lives.
In her book she gives the football fanatic the tools he/she may need on how to use football methodology to win at romance. Sound interesting? It is! In her book she offers advice on how the team concept of sports relates to personal unions, why football doesn’t have to be a seasonal drain on your relationship, how to transfer the rules of engagement from the football field to your bedroom, why sharing passion with a spouse whether it be football or movies or anything else for that matter, can add renewed meaning and intimacy to your marriage, and how to become a “love coach” in your own relationship.
I mean, it’s got it all! Sounds like an ideal book for many of my friends. I may be subtly giving this book as Christmas gifts this year..
Love is a Battlefield
