TJ Barnes is back, playing with his crazy cats, T-Rex and Alaska, helping out in his parents' hardware store and goofing around with his best friend, Seymour. When Seymour announces that he has signed them both up for a football team, TJ fears the worst. Neither of them is huge or mean or able to tackle, catch, throw, run or kick a ball down a field, but Seymour is determined to be a star. With the help of a stack of library books, TJ starts to understand the game but it takes more than a few books to figure out what’s wrong with his best friend.
   TJ and the Sports Fanatic is the fourth of five books in a series.
Book one is TJ and the Cats.
Book two is TJ and the Haunted House.
Book three is TJ and the Rockets.
Book five is TJ and the Quiz Kids.
"Appealing to the sensibilities of boys...interesting facts about football and physics...fun and enlightening...Highly Recommended."
