Where Do You Think You'Re Goin', Lady?

New or Used: $4.94
If you accept my claim - implausible as it might seem to some - that I wasn't attracted to sport by the hope of seeing naked men, what was it that got me in? Well, originally it was Jaffas and soft drink. Debbie grew up in a family where sport was king: from babyhood Debbie accompanied her father to their weekly religious attendance of the rugby league match of the day at the Sydney Cricket Ground; by primary school she was gleefully sharing her grandfather's obsession with horseracing; and in high school she became a qualified cricket umpire and acquired a rugby league coaching certificate. Did someone mention sports mad? The 2GB Sports Talent Search kick-started her career as a sports journalist and just four months after this, she was on her way to the Los Angeles Olympics as a commentator for ABC radio. With funny and fascinating tales of sports media, athletes and officials, Debbie takes us behind the scenes at Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, and into individual sports - athletics, basketball, cricket and rugby league. Best known both as sideline reporter on ABC-TV's rugby league and for her role as Sportsbitch in the iconic 'Live and Sweaty' where sports met comedy, here is a woman who knows her sport. In this entertaining slice of life, irresistible to all sports-mad readers, Debbie shares an extraordinary range of incredible sporting moments. Where Do You Think You're Goin', Lady? is a book for anyone who's ever dreamed of picking up a microphone.
