Men Will Be Boys: The Modern Woman Explains Football and Other Amusing Male Ritualsby Sally Jenkins
Acclaimed writer Sally Jenkins travels from locker rooms to team laundry rooms and kicks open the door to reveal what men may have feared for some timewomen are pigs, too. Women love the mess, the game plan, and the pileup in the end zone as much as the next guy; they just wonder if a winning season means that the head coach isn't able to spend enough time with his kids.
Every Sunday and Monday from September to January, 40 million women tune in to watch NFL football. Sally Jenkins knows that the average woman knows as much about football as the men in her life. With such helpful devices as "A Babe's Glossary of Football terms" and "Stupid Female Questions that Make Perfect Sense," Men Will Be Boys reveals that for every fumble that has the modern woman screaming at the television set, she's also pondering...
How come the big guy in the front line makes so much less than the smaller guy behind him who is always so clean?
Why do coaches wear those beltless pants?
In Men Will Be Boys Jenkins punctures the macho crap that surrounds the game and makes it more fun for the woman fan. And men, too, if they'd only admit they don't know everything.
