My Husband - Ryan- has been raving about Sports Chalet since Christmas when he bought us tennis rackets that sadly, we never use. Fast forward to this past weekend, when he had a desire to go shopping at Sports Chalet again. Enthusiastically, he asked if I would tag along. I responded with an ambivalent answer of something that resembled "No." But in the end, he won, and a brief car ride later, I found myself in the middle of a sporting good store.
Immediately when we arrived, our hands unlocked and I made a bee line straight to the women's clothing section. Finding myself in a position of restraint, I soon found Husband's hand again. And in the midst of
our his shopping trip, I came to learn a few things:
One - Sports Chalet is really just a more fancy name for Sports Authority. They look exactly alike, they carry the exact same stuff. So when Husband asks, "Isn't this store waaay better than Sports Authority?" I simply nod my head in agreement, because, it makes him smile.
Two - Husband reminds me of a kid in a candy store when he screams, "What!? They have a batting cage in here!" Or my personal fave, "Katie, look! A spear gun!" I shared about as much excitement as he would if I showed him a pair of platform Loubitans at Barneys.
And Three - While shopping, I pondered, was he trying really hard to sell this place to me, or was Ryan just genuinely excited to be at the Sports Chalet, with all things manly? I think he answered my question when he effortlessly stated in the middle of the slingshot aisle, "I could easily drop a grand here if I wanted to." In which I sighed, "Story of my life". I guess we're not so different, him and I. Tomato, tomatoh. Sports Authority, Sports Chalet. Let's call the whole thing off. But not. Ever. You see, I'm keeping that one.
