Sports Trivia That Will Amaze Your Spouse

This is a new feature for Houses, Couches and Babies so that all you readers out there will be in the know about what is going on in the world of sports...just for conversation's sake. (And your husband will think you are pretty cool, too!)
  • Thank goodness...no football this weekend. But next weekend is the SuperBowl - SuperBowl XLII to be exact (42 for those that don't know Roman numerals). It is going to be played in Glendale, AZ, which is where the Arizona Cardinals (a.k.a. hot Matt Leinart's team) play their regular season games. The New England Patriots are playing the New York Giants. The Patriots are favored to win by 13-1/2 points (according to Vegas sports books). New England is headed up by hot quarterback Tom Brady - who coincidentally dates Giselle Bundchen and is Bridget Moynahan's "baby daddy." The New York Giants big name player is Eli Manning, who is the brother of Peyton Manning. Peyton is the quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts and who led the Colts to the SuperBowl championship last year. Peyton Manning is also the one you see on every commercial during football games.
    A good question to wow your spouse would be, "Do you think the Giants' offense is strong enough to penetrate through the tough New England defense?"

  • In the world of golf, the Buick Invitational is being played at Torrey Pines golf course in San Diego, CA (well, it is actually La Jolla). Tiger Woods is in the lead so far, which is not a surprise at all. If Tiger wins this tournament, he will tie Arnold Palmer for the most career wins. Tiger Woods is chasing Jack Nicklaus for the most major tournament wins in a career - Tiger has 13 wins and needs 18 to tie Nicklaus.
    A good question for your spouse, "Do you think anyone can really beat Tiger Woods or is it just Tiger's game to win or lose?"
