Description

Here at last is a book for women who love professional sports that is at once smart and saucy, deep and dishy. It's not a book for women who want to impress their husbands or boyfriends. It's not a book that gets all worked up over Title IX or Mia Hamm or the virtues of the WNBA. And it's not a book with a pink cover.In short, the joy and passion of following pro sports is too often eclipsed by an emphasis on factoids and statistics, and here, finally, is the antidote. GameFace: The Kick-Ass Guide for Women Who Love Pro Sports by Erica Boeke and Chris De Benedetti captures the action and drama of pro sports -- both on the field and off -- from scandals to tailgating and from thugs to heroes.GameFace is also packed with never-seen-before lists and tips including: *How to get into the pit at a NASCAR race*Sports Wives & Girlfriends Hall of Fame & Shame*Best & Worst Performances of The Star Spangled Banner*Best Ballpark Eats*Best Sports Movies & TV Shows*Athletes & Teams That Give Us HopeGameFace will inspire female fans everywhere to regale stat-spewing guys at water coolers and sports bars with mesmerizing tales of thrilling victories, agonizing defeats, and the magical (and sometimes hilarious) moments that only pro sports can deliver.show more
