TALK FOOTBALL is the perfect primer for the football impaired. Alice Nicholas, who married a football player and has three football-playing sons, packed crucial information in ten brief chapters and used watercolor illustrations to simplify the official's signals and play rulings. The purse-sized paper back begins with the history of the game, breaks down the gridiron (the football field), explains player positions, the scoreboard, basic X's and O's, and ends with 221 terms in the gridiron glossary for quick reference. TALK FOOTBALL has received positive endorsements from women whose sons and husbands are admired in the national football profession: Bonita Favre, mother to Brett Favre of the Green Bay Packers, Alyne Payton, mother to Walter Payton of the Chicago Bears, Carnelia McAllister, mother to Deuce McAllister of the New Orleans Saints, Doris Robinson, Widow of Coach Eddie Robinson, former head coach of Grambling University, and Perian Conerly, author of Backseat Quarterback, and widow of New York Giants, Charlie Conerly.
