“How come, when my wife says ‘we need to talk,’ it’s never about football?”

A joke was posted on Twitter by FunnyOneLiners‏ on January 7, 2010:

“How come, when my wife says ‘we need to talk,’ it’s never about football?”

“Football” in this joke usually means what Americans call “soccer.” Other sports (such as “baseball") have been inserted in the joke, but much less frequently.

When a woman says, “We need to talk”, why is it never about football?

23 May 2016, The Herald (Glasgow, Scotland), “Heading here” by Ken Smith, pg. ?:
RELATIONSHIPS continued. A reader hears a chap in a Glasgow pub at the weekend ask his pals: “Why is it, whenever she says, ‘We need to talk’ it’s never about football or what pub to go to?”
