Overview

Year after year, Sunday afternoons and Monday nights during the NFL season have belonged to men. While they cheer and argue play calls, the women in their lives are relegated to beer and chip detail. It's time for these women to join the action, and Holly Robinson Peete, star of 21 Jump Street, For Your Love, and Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, and wife of NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, has written this hip, smart, cheerful guide to help them do so.

In Get Your Own Damn Beer, I'm Watching the Game!, Peete shares her infectious enthusiasm for pro football and takes the complexity out of the game by breaking it down to its component parts. She explains the role of each position player, provides a rundown of all on-field penalties and referees' hand signals, and offers an illustrated guide to some of the most common plays in the NFL. She gives her take on the most memorable plays in NFL history and dishes some inside dirt-in a breezy, girl-talkin' narrative that promises to turn the novice spectator into a well-informed football fanatic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Finally, a chick's guide to the game that is smart, knowledgeable, and thoroughly female. If I wasn't already a football fan, this book would turn me into one.” —Star Jones Reynolds, co-host of ABC's The View
Women comprise 40 percent of the National Football League's fan base, but don't tell that to the guys they're dating. Best Damn Sports Show Ever regular Holly Robinson Peete has been a football fanatic ever since her childhood in Eagles-rabid Philadelphia. Now, as the wife of NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, she has even more incentive to be game-savvy. Get Your Own Damn Beer provides essential information for the 50 million women who will watch the next Super Bowl.
