Super Bowl Entertainment

(c) 2006 Tiffany Aaron


Ten years of playing pro football has gotten Donovan Klasek two bad knees, a bad shoulder and an addiction to pain killers. Now he’s free of the addiction and ready to watch his younger brother play in the Super Bowl. Donovan loves his bar, but part of him wishes he had another chance at the big game.

Johnni Aitken has always been her daddy’s girl. She can rattle off football stats with the best. When she gets a job waiting tables at Donovan’s bar, she can’t believe her luck. Football is a religion to her and Donovan has been the star in several of her fantasies. But a football star like Donovan would never look at a tomboy like her.

What happens when a man beat up by life meets a woman longing to heal his heart?

So this is my newest release. I'll be posting an excerpt a little later, but until then I'd love to hear if any of you are Sports Widows? My dh loves football and hockey. On Sundays during football season, we spend three hours in front of the tv, watching his favorite team. Which on certain days is more depressing than others...lol. Last year was awful because we didn't have any hockey to watch. :(

So let me know what your man obsesses over..whether it's sports or anything else. I'll be picking a winner from the comments for a great prize at the end of the day. don't forget to check out Dee S. Knight and Rhiannon Neeley's new release, I'm No Saint, Valentine as well.

Great story excerpt. I was a 'computer widow'until I decided to get one and join the hubby.
When we first were married friends would tell me that my dh should take the computer to bed-this way I would at least have him in bed with me. He was always on the computer researching and playing games till all hours of the night-obsessed with it he was! Now we each have one networked together in the same room - we can be together yet doing our own thing.

I totally understand. If my dh isn't watching sports, he's playing on his computer..either games or working on his photography. I just let him do that. I figure it leaves me more time for writing if I don't have to entertain him..lol

I'm not really a sports widow. DH will watch it on occasion, but it's never a regular thing. He listens to the college hockey game on Fridays and Saturdays via the computer, but I have shows on those nights, so it doesn't really count.

But really...we head to bed at the same time each night just to have some together time and um...other stuff *g*

Together time is great...as is 'other stuff' lol I know there are men out there who aren't as obsessed with sports as my dh. Of course, he likes horror movies as well which I won't watch no matter what..lol. So sports is our way of spending time together.

I am not a sports widow (I don't have a husband or boyfriend), but I was a Sports Orphan (I don't know if that is real term..especially since it was just my dad and not my mom...LOL).

My dad LOVES sports and watches just about every sport. He wore headphones to my sister's graduation so he could listen to a game. He also wore them to her wedding, but my mom wouldn't let him walk down the aisle or wear them during the service...LOL. He also reads every word of the sports pages in the paper. It has been useful to me though...I probably know more about sports than most girls my age which will give me something to talk to guys about...LOL.

P.S. Your latest release looks great...I can't wait to read the excerpt and the book!

I am not a Sport Widow. My hubby loves to watch football but our toddler and I come first. It is one of the many things I appreciate about him. Therefore, when I can I try to be supportive and watch an occasional game with him or keep our son busy so he can watch one without alot of interruptions.

My man obsesses over me. I do nothing but sit around and look pretty. Now, it ain't all peaches and cream. Let's just say my elevator doesn't go all the way to the top...OK?!

Enjoyed the excerpt.

There is such a thing as a Sports Orphan. I'm sure many people have suffered the same thing. Now it was my mom in my house who would have the tv turned on to watch the games. My dh tells me that's how he knew I was the right one to marry. He came to pick me up one day for a date and my mom had a football game on. It was love at first sight...lol

That's great. And I'll be honest except for pro football season, my dh is totally willing to do things with me when there's hockey on. I enjoy football so I don't mind watching it every Sunday. In fact, if there's nothing else on, I search out a hockey game even if the Red Wings aren't playing. :) So I'm as much a sports fanatic as my dh.

Your dh sounds like a keeper.

I'm sure your man loves you, especially when you sit around looking pretty. ;)

Elevators don't always have to go to the top...makes life more interesting that way.

Yes, yes, yes, I am a sports widow! My hubby loves every sport known to man. He is either working, watching sports, or playing a sport. It's bad when he likes me better in his old football jersey than a nightie lol. Great cover, by the way!

My husband and son love to watch football. I've gotten used to Sunday afternoons being all football during the season. I just find a quiet area of the house and read.

Totally with you there. my dh would rather see me in a Red Wings jersey than anything sexy..though he wouldn't complain too much...lol

Blogger Tiffany Aaron said...


I have to admit there are Sundays when I do that or write while the game's on...especially when he has a bunch of friends over watching on his big tv...lol

I don't have any man now but I had a boyfriend who was obssessed with guitar and Jimi Hendrix and another over soccer.

My dh used to play guitar until he got too busy to do it. He likes music, but luckily he isn't as obsessed with it as he is with sports. :)

My Jack is sports challenged. We've lived in St. Louis for over a year and saw a commercial last week for Cardinals baseball. He said, "The Cardinals play here?" When we lived in Kansas City, he was asked a question about how the Chiefs were doing, and he said he didn't know--he didn't follow baseball. And he's not kidding, folks!

If a football game is on at our house, I'm the one watching and he's the onl looking for a quiet place in the house.

Here's an excerpt from Sacking the Quarterback....

He cringed. “Yeah, I know, Jackson. Okay what do you want to talk about?” He was willing to talk to his brother the rest of the night, if it took his mind off the pain and away from the painkillers. He remembered those months after he retired and all those late night phone calls he had made to Jackson, trying to get rid of his addiction to pain meds. His brother had been going through his own problems, but he had listened, no matter what time Donovan had called him.

“I don’t know. Are you dating anyone yet?” Jackson’s laugh was a little forced.

“When would I have time to do that between the bar and running around watching your ass play?”

“What about all those football groupies that come to the bar? Why not take one of them out?”

“They come to the bar hoping you’ll drop in. They don’t want some has-been ex-addict, brother.” Donovan sipped the milk and wished he could have a stiff drink. Since his battle with addiction, he didn’t want to take a chance that he would get hooked on something else.

“You’ve always sold yourself short. Not all those girls coming over to our house in high school were chasing after me.” Jackson groaned softly. “Sorry, trying to get more comfortable.”

“Yeah, well I don’t really want to talk about my sex life or lack of one. Hey, you remember that truck driver I told you about?”


“Yeah. Well, he’s met his match in the new waitress Roscoe hired while I was gone.” He set his glass in the sink and headed back to his room.

“Really?” His brother’s voice was getting slower and sleepier.

“They were arguing about football tonight. She knows a lot of stats for a female.” He slid back into bed and leaned against the headboard. “She’s named after Johnny Unitas.”

“Poor thing. What’s she look like?”

Donovan felt his cock harden as he pictured Johnni in his mind. “She’s tall and has legs that go on for miles.”

Jackson laughed. “You were always a leg man.”

“And she has a great set.” He pictured them wrapped around his waist as he thrust into her. “She’s a redhead and seems to have a temper to match the hair. Lots of curves as well.”

“Too bad you don’t mix business with pleasure, old man. You might have found your perfect girl.” A soft moan and then Jackson’s tired voice came back. “I think I’ll try to sleep now. Thanks for talking, Donnie.”

“No problem, brother. Whenever you need me, call me.” Donovan hung up the phone.

Reaching down, he grasped his cock in his fist and pumped. With his other hand, he cupped his balls and fondled them. He pictured Johnni on her back, screaming his name with each thrust.

He moaned in the darkness. His hand moved faster and soon his hips were jerking in time to the imaginary thrusts. His balls tightened and he could feel his climax building. In his fantasy, she came with a scream and he felt his cum spurt out onto his stomach and hand.

When his breathing slowed, he went to the bathroom and cleaned up. Climbing into bed, he lay staring up at the ceiling. He remembered telling Jackson he didn’t go out with girls who saw him as a piece of meat. Yet that’s exactly how he had just treated Johnni. He’d used her body to jerk off, figuratively speaking.

He groaned. The next time he saw her, he was going to be so embarrassed. Rolling over, he punched his pillow and swore. The ache in his shoulder reminded him he had missed his medicine. If his new waitress ever got a look at his scarred body, she’d be hightailing it away. He fell asleep, trying to figure out why the thought of that upset him.

I'm not a sports widow except for when it comes to NASCAR, which I'll watch but...

My favorite sport is boxing. I love watching it, especially the heavy weights. So much power there.

I'm not a sports widow - I'm a woodworking widow! Ever since my dh took up woodworking about three years ago, every spare moment goes to his hobby! He does make some really beautiful things. Neighbors, friends, and family (he's the oldest of 10) are always asking him to either fix something or make something for them. It takes up a lot of time. Thank goodness he's not into sports except for an occasional basketball game!

Great excerpt! I'd like to read more!! :)

I'm a golf widow. That's okay, it gives me time to write. LOL

My husband loves football, but so do I. We watch it together so it works well and I don't feel like a sports widow. He also watches racing, hockey and baseball. I like racing, baseball is OK but a little boring and I don't like hockey because of the fights. During that time I'm on the PC or reading.

Love the excerpt!

does he make things or carve things? Woodworking is so cool. My BIL builds tons of stuff with wood. :)

I'm now slowly becoming a golf widow as well. My dh picked it up last year and is now addicted to it. So much that a friend of his and he are heading down to SC for a week to play. oh well...guess I'll get a lot of writing done then.

I used to be a big baseball fan until my dh corrupted me...now it's football and hockey. I'll watch an occasional race when there's nothing else on.

Ok, hubby is asports zombie, so in turn I am a sports widow.

Dear hubby is the one who clutches the remote in his hand, switching from channel to channel to get a glimpse of his beloved sports contests (wrestling, football, tennis, hockey, cricket). Sometimes he just falls asleep to the sound of sports commentators murmuring in his ear.

If it is not sports then there are horror and mystery movies. He loves everything from vampires to serial killers.

Just want to bang my head against the wall when he comes to bed at 3:00 AM after watching the replays and asks me whether I am awake or not. *Grrrrrr*
