“He’s not gonna leave his team.”

Listening to the Kidd Kraddick Morning Show this morning, and it’s Love Letters to Kellie.  

Some young hopeless crazy person is hard selling her adulteress relationship to Kellie Raspberry. 

Kellie responds by explaining to her that it will never work. And, I’m loving every minute of it because it’s saturated in sarcasm. And, duh. 

And, duh. 

Duh, girl! It doesn’t work. It won’t work. It never works. 

She’s probably young, and he’s probably not. I had my own Denzel-esque/Clooney-esque moment from back in time. The moment a handsome older gent supplied me with everything the younger gent didn’t. While I was being the greener grass on the other side, no drama, no kids, no responsibilities, and lots of late nights. 

We were meant to be. He told me so. I was everything she wasn’t. He was gonna leave her anyway. They were practically separated. He was only still there for the kids, finances, her state of mind, blah, blah, and blah. 

WE WERE NOT MEANT TO BE. 

We ultimately fizzled out. I got over it. He found a greener, greener, grass. 

I still get a HBD text, though. No response. He thinks it’s funny. 

Kellie gave this advice, drawn from a professional she saw at some point. Basically, men aren’t typically that complicated. And, “HE’S NOT GOING TO LEAVE HIS TEAM!”

Means, men are loyal…kinda. Cowboys fans don’t jump ship because the Eagles win. Cowboys fans fight to the end. They don’t leave the team. They don’t. Even if they go over to greener grass, at the tailgate, to eat Eagles fans grilled whatever. (I don’t tailgate. This whole sports analogy is a little out of my field.) They remain Cowboys fans. They don’t take off their jersey. They don’t pull any flags or decals off their car. They just eat the grilled stuff and go back home. They go back home. 

THEY GO BACK HOME. THEY. GO. BACK. HOME. 

People who cheat, some people who cheat, do so to fulfill something that’s not fulfilled in their relationship. They don’t cheat to replace the relationship. 

He’s not going to leave his team. His wife, children, home, routine, and comfort are more valuable than your late night romps. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you’re more than just being used.

  1. My husband’s AP went to counseling while seeing him (and living in a future-fantasy world of them walking into the sunset together). The counselor leaned over, looked her in the eye, and said, “They never leave their wives.” Per HUSBAND, she called him on the way home from that visit, panicked, and he assured her he was different. They were different. And that lasted until he was caught.
    You’re right. With rare exception, they don’t leave their teams. Bloody, abused and broken, but they don’t leave.
