Some (many?) of the wives and girlfriends of Hockey loving guys out there are sadly missing what was for them was the wonderful season of no hockey that they experienced last year. Now they're bumming while their spouses/boyfriends are cheering because...
"During hockey season, our life is totally taken over by hockey and I didn't realize how badly that was happening, until the strike came along," Lauren Burrows, who is engaged to a hockey fanatic, says.Dr. oddmanrush's advice to Hockey lovers caught in these types of totally dysfunctional relationships is to........ RUN !!! Find yourself someone who's as passionate, committed and crazed as you are about this sport. They are out there. It might not be easy to find them but it's totally worth the effort. I know because I was lucky and blessed enough to find one. If a goofball puckhead like I can do it... so can you.
"And then all of a sudden there was this beautiful freedom from hockey that I didn't know that I needed."
"I can't say that our relationship is in trouble, but I must say that watching hockey several nights a week, including the nights that he goes to play hockey, can get a little boring," Burrows says.
With their husbands distracted, like-minded women are even seeking out support in online forums.
Hockey loving women are the best, DON'T settle for less.
