When it comes to dating, everyone makes mistakes. Rosa Blasi made hers with professional athletes . . . over and over again.
There was the hockey player (whose body part she mistook for a rolling pin), the basketball center (her karmic "grim reaper”), the baseball outfielder (a catch "on paper”...until she read too much about him in the papers), and finally the NFL running back who led her to athlete sobriety. Over the course of ten years, actress Rosa Blasi had serious relationships with stars from several professional sports. And now she shares the intimate details of her wild journey with self-deprecating candor—offering juicy behind-the-scenes details of her romantic misadventures with jocks.
From sneaking into the Playboy Mansion to her debut spread in Maxim magazine, Rosa details with acerbic wit and raw honesty the surprising ups and sometimes frightening downs of dating sports "heroes." Jock Itch is an eye-opening and often hilarious cautionary tale guaranteed to make anyone contemplating a relationship with a pro athlete turn and run as fast as possible to the opposite end zone.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
Rosa Blasi is a native of Chicago and has appeared on many TV shows, including General Hospital, Frasier, Drew Carey, and more recently CSI: Miami, 90210, Melrose Place, and Mr. Sunshine.

Extremely funny, readable, and entertaining. Rosa knows how to tell a story, make it humorous, and leave it imprinted in your mind. It would make a great movie, albeit R-rated. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Rocco Blasi

I couldn't put this book down. She's so funny, yet the stoies had depth to them and you could laugh with her and cry with her pain. Good readPublished on April 30, 2012 by Blondyandy
