To give you an idea of what the book is all about, here are some of Chris’s Boston sports ideas for this upcoming winter:

“There are more than enough sporting events to choose from for your family’s die-hard,” Klein says. For affordable family-friendly options, he lists several local teams, from the Boston Blazers to the Providence Bruins to local college men and women’s games.

“But why just buy tickets for one game when you could attend a whole season’s worth?” Klein notes that the Boston Blazers indoor lacrosse team offers season tickets for $80—an incredible steal. “The Blazers are one of Boston’s newest and hottest teams and season tickets are sure to be a huge hit with lax fans in the family.” The Boston Breakers also have season tickets available for as little as $165—or just $15 a game. “This local Women’s Soccer team has made a fantastic comeback at the historic Harvard Stadium. They will be sure to inspire your family’s soccer star next spring.”

Or if the goal of the gift is to go big, “Splurge for a once in a lifetime experience,” Klein says about getting tickets to see the NHL Winter Classic at Fenway Park. “On New Year’s Day, watch the beloved ballpark be transformed into an ice rink as the Bruins take on the Philadelphia Flyers.”

“Have a friend who can’t stop singing about the Celtics?” If so, submit a recording to the C’s and he might be selected to perform the National Anthem at TD Garden before a home game this season. “Or, for fans over fifteen, book a ride on the Zamboni at a B’s game.” The cost: donate over $150 to the Bruins Foundation.

For those required romantic dates during the holiday season—with a necessary sports twist—Klein suggests making a date for a Saturday morning. “Nothing says romance like a cappuccino in Boston’s North End. Of course, cheering on the European soccer teams with lively locals makes the experience all the more unique.”

And then, there’s always The Die-Hard Sports Fan’s Guide to Boston. “Ok, I’m biased,” Klein says, “But, under twenty bucks, jam-packed with Boston sports history and the practical information that die-hard fans want, this book makes an ideal and affordable holiday gift for sports fans, history buffs, and Boston enthusiasts.”
