Football Season Resumes in 9 Days. Here’s All the Things You Can Do for Your Boyfriend

July 27, 2022

In case you haven’t heard — which is already a red flag — football is coming back on August 5 2022. Your boyfriend is primed and ready to spend his entire weekend screaming in front of his TV, and honestly, we’re excited for him. 

How can you, as a person who loves him, make his life easier for the next nine months? Start here. 

Buy him his team’s 2023 jersey

You should have already done this by now, but if you haven’t, it’s not too late; you still have a few days. He can’t be wearing regular clothes — or worse still — last season’s jersey to watch the new season’s matches. No way. That man has to enter the season wearing his team’s new jersey. Make it happen, queen. Not every time singlet and boxers.

Stock his fridge with beer and fried chicken

You know what goes well with football? Beer. Buy beer and spicy chicken wings for that man and see if his love for you won’t grow. 

Renew his cable subscription

Times are tough. Your king can’t be running around looking for who has cable subscription or streaming links when it’s time to watch a game. Surprise him with by reneweing his subscription every month from August 2022 to May 2023. Walahi, he’ll marry you.

Don’t watch BBNaija when football is on

It’s not when Arsenal is playing that you’ll start looking for the remote to see what Whitemoney and Zinoleesky are doing? None of that, please. Let’s not fight

Leave him alone on weekends

Simple. Once it’s 4 p.m. on Friday, just leave him alone. He will be available again the following Tuesday. Your relationship can continue from there. 

Don’t ask him who is wearing red

If you want to know who is playing, Google is your friend. Here’s all you need to know: it’s Arsenal that’s wearing read and losing. Please, none of the usual endless questioning. He already has enough stress in his life.

Move out 

If you cannot follow the points above, just move out. There’s no point being a pest. Be his peace. Remember? 

Break up with him

Yes. He may be heartbroken when he receives the news. But when you tell him the reason, he’ll appreciate you. Trust me. I’ve tried and tested this.
