Me Chalk Cheese you would want to know a ton about it This book has pretty much everything a kid needs to know about football unlike Sports Illustrated Football s Greatest it doesn t just talk about players it talks about stuff like which team has the most super bowl rings and also fun stuff too like What IS the best gameday snack and how to play paper football It tellsou a ton of facts too It is everything Christmas with Grandma Elsie (The Original Elsie Dinsmore Classics you need to know to become a Gridiron Know it All as the book says Copy provided by Blue Slip MediaThe tag line on this is Everythingou need to become a gridion know it all Lingo trivia stats skills The stats part of this covers a whole lot I appreciated most that there were overviews of all of the teams including the ear they were founded notable players and coaches and highlights of different seasons There are also lots of pages about different players that include their statistics as well This makes me wonder why no one talks about Morten Anderson who had most career points and seems very impressive but I ve never heard of him The other important thing I learned was that the Cleveland Browns have never been to a Super Bowl Now want this to happen I grew up euidistant between Cleveland and Pittsburgh although my was a Steelers fanIn addition to the various statistics there is a lot of information on how to perform different plays My favorite was how to dress appropriately when ou re going to a game as someone who once went to a football game in November wearing tennis shoes with no socks it would have been useful There s even a page on how to make a ueso dipThis is a great book for dipping into during study halls on car trips or even during lunch I d rather see kids reading from something like this at lunch than playing games on their phones This will be a popular book with my readers who are fond of both sports at Guinness Book of World Records type compilations of facts My only objection to the book is some of the formatting the paper over board cover didn t even hold up well to being mailed in a padded envelope so a lot of tape will be involved in processing it for library use The full color illustrations give the book the same sort of odd smell that graphic novels have Also the pages are designed so that some of them look like the corner is folded over or someone has spilled something on the page which made me a little twitchy Readers will not even notice these things except for the excessive amount of tape on my library copy Excellent uick read for anyone wanting to know about their favorite game The book is divided into different chapters with records player comparisons team histories and even game day snack ideas It s colorful inviting and excellent for even the most reluctant readers If ഹിമവാന്റെ മുകള്ത്തട്ടില് Himavante Mukalthattil you are a fan of footballou can have all of our favorite football fun facts in one handy guide Fans will find gridiron terms stats and figures obscure facts tips on NFL coaching and even a few recipes for fan day snacks Fans will find tips on how to stay positive if our favorite team is in a slump Do Myself and Other More Important Matters you know how to get an autograph fromour favorite player There are some great tips to help Downhill Slide you get the signature ofour dreams Did Capital Cities/Abc, The Early Years, 1954 1986 you know that there were only four teams who ve never played in a Super Bowl They are the Lions Browns Texans and Jaguars Tiffany and Company produce the Super Bowl trophy and it costs about 50000 Fans will learn fun facts about Don Shula Peyton Manning Deion Sanders Otto Graham and so much Ifou don t know football but have always wanted to feel like an insider Audrey Hepburn you will be amazed at the factsou will learn to impress Silent Seduction your friends I would like to start with a couple of disclaimers 1 I am not a child I haven t been one for some considerable time I am however a British adult who has only recently got into American Football having given up fighting my brother s attempts to get me interested a fewears ago and since attending 7 live games in the London International series I now have the basics off pat The reason I wanted to read this book was that even though I now get the game there is a whole lot of history I feel is missing in my overall knowledge of the sport itself I also want to be able to talk the talk and feel included when we meet up with other hard core fans of the game without resorting to stop the conversation and ask for explanations of some of the terms being used 2 I read an ARC of this book in PDF format so I have no idea what the finished product will lookfeel like I am only able to comment on what.
