B - My husband has skis in the closet.  They're covered with dust.

A - I gave him a basketball for his birthday because he said that he wanted to start playing basketball with the guys.  I don't know why I bought it.  It just takes up space in the closet.

A - The only “sports” equipment my husband uses is the remote control to the TV. 

B - I think we should sell all of the sports equipment and get something that they'll really use.

A - What's that?  A new sofa.  They spend more time sitting on the sofa watching TV than anything else.
