    Default good story

    My wife works at her sisters wedding dress/tux store from time to time. The other day Nick Gallicks party was there getting fit for tux's. My wife saw all the cauliflower and asked them if they were wrestlers. They all said they wrestled for Iowa State. It was Nate and Nick Gallick, Zabriskie, Mitch Mueller and Joe Curran. (those are the ones she could remember names of anyway). She told them how her husband is a big wrestling fan but he's a hawkeye. She continued to tell them how the only wrestler she can remember is Brent Metcalf. They all started laughing at that...except Mueller. They were not suprised that Metcalf was the only one she knew but Mueller wasn't really amused by it.

    I got a kick out of that one.

    That's a cool story. But it sounds to me like you need to do more name dropping. She doesn't know McDonough? Or even your boy Ramos? Communication is important in a marriage Herkey. The only way to salvage this wedded bliss is to constantly talk Hawkeye wrestling until she knows the starting lineup and can recommend who should step in if an injury occurs. Otherwise she will feel shut out.

    Quinn, I talk about wrestling all the time. She just doesn't listen to me.

    Herkey--I hadn't read your response when I responded to Quinn's post. You've got a challenging, but common problem. I wonder how many guys that post here have a wife that's significantly interested in wrestling. Probably not many. Otherwise we'd be talking to our wife instead of posting on here so much! But here's a suggestion. The next time she talks and talks about something that is really important to her, listen attentively, ask questions, give good non-verbal signals. Then when she's done, say that there are some things you'd like to talk about. She'd have to give you equal attentive time. (OK--maybe not HAVE TO. . .but it's a chance. . .)

    My attention span for TomKat and the Kardashians is only about five seconds long. What you suggest is mission impossible.

    Got to agree with you on this one, Quinn. My wife is no wrestling fan, but she knows at least Molinaro, Taylor, Ruth, Wright, Alton. I think Herkey needs to have a little more communication with his wife. We can't be on TWT all the time! Now your goals, Quinn, are a little higher than mine. If I tried to get my wife up to speed enough to recommend replacements it will mean I had overtalked the subject. That could be deleterious to the relationship. You need to balance that fine line of letting her know just enough to be mildly conversant but not going on too long about it! To put the shoe on the other foot--my wife needs to take me on brief search-and-destroy shopping trips. Anything longer is also not helpful to our relationship!

    I was originally going to make this a domestic violence picture, but I thought that might be too far.

    Perfect Delivery, Zapp.

    Herkey, I suggest taking your wife to the matches with you, these days, watch B10 network coverage with her. At first, my wife appreciated the athleticism and really enjoyed the, ummm, view. Phil Davis dropping the top half of his singlet once he got off the mat really helped. Now, is is just about as rabid a fan as I am.
