Welcome to the first Top 5 Clever Topics for a Guy's Girl. The photo to the left is me in my favorite shirt- oh, and the HOT dude whose hair I am touching?

The emphasis of these articles is to offer conversational points for women who will be in the company of men who enjoy sports.
I won’t exhaust any of it—as with all things So Very Clever, I will give you the broad strokes and depend on you to delve further if you are inclined. If you decide you'd like to go deeper, head to my blog for sports rules, terminology, penalties and conduct.
If you’ve been invited to watch the game or your man is hosting game day—you need to have some idea what is going on—unless you don't care, in which case you should not be reading B/R or www.soveryclever.com—or dating a sports-minded guy.
A woman who reviews these Top 5 will be ready to contribute- but remember, Clever Girls, don't assert, argue or spew stats-- it's rude, combative and you will get hamstrung eventually. Defer to men and if you get in over your head, "What do you think" works wonders.
Use Bleacher Report—sign up for your man’s alma mater, his favorite professional teams and receive emails daily. B/R might as well be holding your hand (the way I do).
