At the risk of sounding like I’m excluding people, this one is something for the gentlemen out there. I want you to picture this with me here, and let me know what YOU would do.

Picture this; it’s a Saturday night, and being the good husband/father you are, you buy tickets to a hockey game for your family. You bring your lovely wife, and you two beautiful children to watch your FAVORITE team go for the win. And it was a fantastic night all around; Little Joey was able to get a signed hockey stick from a player, and Little Sally caught a T-Shirt that the mascot shot in the stands. It was all……perfect.

Then, this happens……

A member of the fanbase decides to go to the glass, stand on a step stool, and just bust a move. And they REALLY get into it, almost like they were at a try-out for a team dance squad that doesn’t exist. Then, everyone around you starts to scream their heads off, telling her to stop dancing and sit down. Even your wife starts to join in, trying to get the dancer to stop.

The question is, what do you do? Do you side with your wife for the sake of her not thinking you’re a perverted creep? Or do you keep quiet, and just “enjoy the game?”

Me, I would be the one “enjoying the game.” I would be the one just sitting back, taking in the sights and sounds of the arena, and not making “direct” eye contact with the “extra performance” happening in my section. Granted, my wife might be upset that I’m not taking her side or doing something about it. But all I have to say is; “Hey, I’m enjoying the game here.”

…….and if there’s an extra “performance” happening that my eyes catch a glimpse of, then how’s that my fault?
