Summary

Summary

Today, more and more women are becoming interested in spectator sports. But even though the people around you might be having fun, you feel a little left out. You just don't understand all the rules. Don't worry, you've come to the right place! Laugh and learn as you take a walk inside a man's world-seen from a woman's perspective-and see how easy it is to learn, understand, and become a full-fledged fan of the games. Book jacket.
