LPF Book Club: She's Got Game

While I have no trouble picking out a game day outfit or organizing the perfect tailgate, when it comes down to actually knowing what's going on in the game I'm at a loss.

That's why I jumped at the chance to read Melissa Malamut's: She's Got Game: The Woman's Guide to Loving Sports (or Just How to Fake It!). It's sort of embarassing how little I know about sports, even though I've attended more boyfriend's baseball games then I can count, 3 seasons of football games, and danced at every home basketball game in high school.

The book outlines the must-knows of MLB, NFL, NHL, College football & basketball,  tennis, Major League Soccer, and even Nascar. The author has worked in sports PR & resarerches for ESPN, so she really knows her stuff. There's tons of fun facts thrown in about rivalries, sports movies & even what to wear. Maybe I'll even impress the boys with my newfound sports knowledge ;)

Will you be watching/attending any sporting events this summer?

I hate sports... but if I went to a sporting event that would be the PERFECT outfit!

Sounds like such a fantastic book!!! I'm a football (soccer) and cricket ffan, but apart from that I do just stare at the TV wondering whats going on. This book would be so useful!

Haha this is such a perfect guide! I only know football, swimming, baseball, and kind of soccer. When it comes to every thing else I know a little, but not even know to fake knowing everything! I'll have to check this out!
And I love the outfit selection to accompany it, though I'd have to switch that Dodgers for Phillies!

That guide sounds phenomenal! I know 0 about sports; therefore I will definitely not be attending any sporting events. Though I may need to check out that guide!! :)

I'm totally the same way.
I might go to a baseball game or two, but other than that I don't go to many sporting events. kinda sad, I should go to a football game or something
