When Teena Spencer finally decides to watch her inaugural game of football, she has two thoughts: What the hell is going on? and Holy cow! Is that guy dead? As the season progresses and the Super Bowl gets closer, the guys around her begin to whip themselves into a frenzy with incomprehensible football chatter. She realizes she must either learn the game or hide out at home. In The Girlfriend's Guide to Football, Teena Spencer and Chuck Brown illuminate the arcane language of the sport (flea flicker), the rules (clipping) and the rituals (the wearing of dog collars). It's all here: the teams, the history, the top players and the trivia, written with clarity and humour. There are details on Canadian football (CFL) and American college football, too. Other added bonuses include: - a hilarious section on the culture of cheerleading - answers to questions you were always afraid to ask - unforgettable words of advice from coach Vince Lombardi - Chuck's Super Bowl party essentials, including a recipe for his "ultimate" chicken wings Playful and informative, The Girlfriend's Guide to Football is a perfect introduction to the game of football.
