Superhuman ladies, men, and kids are watching football. This isn’t a fad. It isn’t a trend. It’s a revolution. The National Football League set an attendance record last season with 66,453 fans per game. We can’t forget about kids and their parents, with more than 12 million children participating in the sport nationwide. The 10 most-watched programs in television history are all Super Bowls.

“These football fans are smart. While most will understand what they see and hear, something during the game will come up that’s unfamiliar,” predicts Suzy Beamer Bohnert, author of the new book Game-Day Goddess: Learning Football’s Lingo. “Everyone needs to know what’s going on to enjoy the game, so my book deals with football on a humorous level.”

Injecting wit and brevity, the pocket-sized Game-Day Goddess: Learning Football’s Lingo is a politically incorrect look inside the game of football. There’s plenty of empathy for the fan who finds offenses and defenses, players and officials as tricky parts of the game.

A quick thumb through of the book leaves everyone less bewildered by the game and more familiar with football’s language. Readers can relate to and understand the text.

“Men, women, and children love this book because it’s entertaining, funny, and informative,” says Beamer Bohnert. “It’s loaded with humor, easy to understand, and let’s you learn about football painlessly.”

The book starts with a brief overview of the basic rules of football. The bulk of the book features alphabetical listings of commonly used words fans will hear during the broadcast of a football game or while they watch in the stands. For those readers who want a simple understanding of the game or a quick meaning for something said, this book lists hundreds of definitions.
