    Actually I like to watch the Patriots -- Bostom -- I either hand quilt or applique.

    Last year I finished hand quilting a queen -- the one that is my avatar. Now I am just starting a Dear Jane Stickle quilt -- Tonite I appliqued 2 blocks -- out of over 200 -- so I guess I'll have enough to do for the season. Of course, then it is followed by basketball. I'm not a fan.

    I can absorb the game and glance up for an exciting play or touchdown while I do something pretty

    I'm worse than DH too. :) I love my football. But I do EPP while watching it (sometimes - if I'm not screaming at the TV)

    I don't have a DH so that's not a problem. I can watch whatever football game I'm interested in. Especially the GATORS!

    I like to sew while games are on now that I have a television right behind my machine. They show each play so many times, I don't have to watch every second to follow the play.

    Go GATORS!!!!

    I'm with most of you...in fact I too watch more football than he does. I'm a NASCAR fanatic...Pittsburgh Steeler fanatic and a Penn State University fanatic. I had the Eagles/Ravens preseason game on the TV in our bedroom. My computer is in the spare room across the hall so I could hear the game. Hubby went to bed early so he changed the channel to The Travel Channel.

    He used to be the NASCAR fan and the football fan...I would only watch certain games. Now since I LOVE it...he decided that he doesn't like it as much any more. lol

    I don't like to watch football. My DH only watches pro football as far as sports, thank goodness. He has to watch the Cowboys. I sew, read, watch TV in the other room or get out and go shopping.

    I don't have a sports bone in my body and DH knew before we got married I would not spend one hour of my life watching sports on tv with him or anyone. I did watch bowling one time and he was aghast I called that a sport. LOL
    He has his tv room for all his sport watching. I rarely go in there when I hear a game on.

    My DH is not a sports watcher - only Nascar. I like Nascar too, but we are not usually watching together. In other TV we have totally different tastes - he likes comedies, I think they are dumb and a waste of time. I like HGTV, History, Food, DIY, or news. But we have been married 49 years. He does his thing, I do mine, and some things we do together.

    WOO HOO, another Nascar fan! I love Nascar and football -- more than husband although we do enjoy Nascar together!

    I usually cross stitch while watching the TV.
