"They call themselves “Baseball Widows,” and rue the day Babe ever glorified the bat and balls. They’ve tried everything ~ from lingerie in team colors to straight-out dress-up in sports gear and standing naked in front of the TV ~ just to get their attention. One woman at our recent game-watching gathering says that what upsets her the most is the fact that her husband can spend 2 to 3 hours watching a game that couldn’t hold her attention for 5 minutes ~ but in bed, he was the opposite. Instead of devoting himself to the event, he barely managed 5 minutes of sliding into home before the game was called on account of the wet spot. And that includes days without beers! Poor dear!"
