Tell your man: "Take Me Out to the Ball Game"...and Mean it! Is your favorite guy spending more time talking to the 'tube' than to you? Would you like to score with that nice looking single at the sports bar? Well, ladies, it's time to step up to the plate and get into the game with this relationship hit that's just in time for the playoffs! Paula Duffy, lifelong sports enthusiast, and founder of Incidental Contact (www.incidentalcontact.com), a sports learning site for women, takes you out to the ball game and explains the basics of America's favorite pastime, step-by-step, in just under an hour. In his language, that's equal to approximately three innings, four beers and two belches. So grab a hot dog and some pretzels and find out what all that cheering is about. Besides teaching you the basics of the sport, Duffy entertainingly shows you the practical applications of baseball knowledge (aka "sports speak") as it pertains to success in business, personal relationships, and, of course, romance. Yes ladies, there's more to baseball than just crotch grabbing, spitting and congratulatory pats on the butt. Remember, to hit a grand slam, you've got to get off the couch, and head for the diamond!Show more
Shaq, Kobe, LeBron, their names are regularly in the headlines, now it's time to learn why they're famous. Paula Duffy, "sportstress" extraordinaire, is lending her knowledge and enthusiasm to one of the most exciting sports today with A Woman's Guide to Basketball: How to Talk His Language. In her exciting follow-up to A Woman's Guide to Football Duffy hits the court with the 24-second clock running to explain the game of basketball and invite women to join in the fun. A firm believer that a little sports knowledge can go a long way, Duffy says "sports talk is the most easily learned and best way to break the ice in any context: at home, in business or at play. I am here to debunk the myth that men don't like to talk. Men do like to talk...sports. I enjoy teaching the ladies how to connect through sports, what men like to talk about and how to understand their language." Women who don't know the rules of the game are often intimidated, but in under an hour, they can get a firm grasp of the game. In no time, they'll learn the basics, who the top players are and the crowd-thrilling moves such as the Alley Oop, the Pick and Roll, and how to shoot from way downtown. From the first jump ball to the final second on the clock, women can finally bring together nascent hoop dreams and their desire to relate to the b-ball obsessed men in their lives.Show more
