So I was preparing myself for a loss... then AJ started driving down the field with ease. So I'm thinking, "OK, maybe field goal range, but I really am not confident about OT in Death Valley." Sorry, just the truth. My wife is next to me and I have 3 cats sitting around me (ya, I know). And then...
... the screen pass. I jump up, I scream some ungodly sound, the cats scatter, my wife gets ticked off, and I'm slamming my fists into the couch like a mad man. Immediately, my wife pauses the game and yells at me about scaring the cats. She tells me that the sound I made was the most horrid sound she's ever heard come from me... as if I had just broken my leg. She refuses to unpause the game until I've found the cats and made amends. Knowing that the wife always wins these things, I seek out the cats. (the extra point hadn't even been kicked yet) When they see me, they run from me. For 5 minutes I'm trying to get the cats to forgive me knowing that the game will not be turned back on until amends have been made. Finally, I get 1 cat to accept my apology and my wife turns the game back on. This morning, my wife tells me, "I never want to see you like that again." I guess I scared her.
Dude, you need to train her better. My wife is 7 months pregnant and was screaming louder, jumping higher and pounding the furniture harder than I was. I demand only the best from her, but was deeply ashamed in my effort.
Sounds like you have a bunch of----------------------------------

Ya, my wife is 5 months pregnant w/ our first kid and she's British. She doesn't know much nor care about American sports. She's good enough to let Saturdays be my day, but doesn't attempt to fake that she enjoys it.
Talk to the hand!
You need to show her some footage of futbol from her homeland. Rowdy loud fans is not distinctly American thing. My wife gives me a hard time too but she knows thats just the way it is. Oddly though, the last time I was this loud watching a TV game was UGA's blackout game or the barn game in 2010.

Wait....why did your wife have the remote? I was lost after that statement.
Funniest thing I've read all day. +1 OP!
Sounds to me like "you don't need two wives to have one too many."
