Get Your Own Damn Beer, I'm Watching the Game!: A Woman's Guide to Loving Pro Football

Holly Robinson Peete, Author, Daniel Paisner, Author, Ronnie Lott, Foreword by Rodale Press $15.95 (228p) ISBN 978-1-59486-163-5
Sitcom star Peete has an insider's view of the NFL: she's married to quarterback Rodney Peete. Drawing on her knowledge and love of the game, Peete targets females who'd prefer not to be abandoned on game days and invites readers to picture a time when their significant other ""no longer calls all his guy friends over to watch the game...because there's no one he'd rather watch it with than you."" Peete's appealing wit spices up the basics (explanation of the game's rules, positions, history and common strategies) and includes sidebars on football movies, top quarterbacks and Peete's favorite ""football butts."" Though the book shoots for a female audience, Peete's patient explanation of even the most fundamental components (she devotes a page each to discussing the ball and the field) can be of use to those with a Y-chromosome who find the gridiron baffling. Her affection for America's game comes through in this book, and many game-day widows will embrace it as an essential read. Photos not seen by PW.
