I have been with my girlfriend for just about 9 months and luckily she is a Bruins, and Pats fan and enjoys watching both sports. She hates baseball, and I'll never get her to come around to it, but I did manage to get her to fall in love with the Celtics because of the playoff run last year. It is a great thing to have a girlfriend that doesn't get mad if you'd rather stay home and watch a game with her than go out to dinner.

While she doesn't get nearly as emotionally involved as I do she atleast understands why I do and that made the Superbowl and both the Bruins and Celtics game 7's much easier to deal with because I didn't have to hide how upset I was.
