My Other Half Isn’t….A Sports Fanatic

18 Jun

The Celtics/Laker game ruined my mojo on Tuesday night. 

When I say ruined I mean utterly killed, destroyed and pulverized my opportunity to flirt mercilessly with a gorgeous musician.

With that said, I never want to see a basketball game again.  I don’t want to hear the word “basketball” and I don’t want to hear the whining by Celtics fans and the celebrations of the Lakers’ fans.

On Tuesday I decided to go to this concert with a friend of mine in hopes to have some fun.  I have had utterly bad luck when it comes to this particular band so when I meet them it is with caution and I never really expect much.  Fate, apparently, was feeling bored that day and decided to get my hopes up anyway.

As luck would have it an old friend of mine messaged me the previous night and asked if I was going to the show.  The reason he wanted to know was to see if I wanted him to hook me up because he’s friends with one of the band. 

Once again, I didn’t get my hopes up but kept it in mind.  I arrived at the after party only to be told to go to the VIP area where my friend and my musical crush were hanging out.

Everything was going well at first; I was mingling and staying away from my target.  The butterflies were dancing in my stomach, my hands were shaking and my knees were marshmallows.  Finally I just asked my friend to introduce us.

I should mention that while I was mingling, this hottie musician was starring at the TV screen like his life depended on it.  Half naked girls surrounded him the entire night and he was watching the game like it was a porn marathon. 

Well, my dear friend introduces me to the guy I have had a crush on for AGES.  I shook his hand and smiled, direct eye contact, great posture…all the things you learn from an episode of “Tough Love”.

He looked me  up and down, gave me the famous half-smile, and told me it was nice to meet me.  Our eyes met, my heart pounded and then….

He turned right around and started watching the tv again.

I would have taking it personally had I not seen him blowing off his entire party of this game.  I mean, I get that people have their obsessions but REALLY?!!!!

Afterwards. I thought to myself how a girlfriend would feel if that happened to them.  I spoke to my wonderful friend Catherine about the situation and she told me how her HUSBAND was the same way with this game.  She had thrown herself at him and he replied,

“Babe, could you get off me for a minute. The game is on…”

I do not want a guy who is going to blow me off for a GAME!  If I could talk to you during my Bon Jovi show, Vampire Diaries, or any Robert Pattinson interview, YOU could pay attention to me during a game that YOU aren’t even playing in. 

In conclusion, thank you to the night club Ultra 88, the Celtics, the Lakers, and the sick sense of humor of Fate; you all suck.

    I’m sorry this kinda made me laugh because I know numerous guys that would have blown a woman off for that game last night.

    Better luck next time.
