Storyline

Chicago sports-sage chick P.J. Franklin regularly hosts several same-sports-supporting friends from different walks of life and backgrounds for poker games and hangs out with them, mainly in their regular bar, but also personal events. Her brother Andy joined being bored by married life and legal profession. Their conversations combine the open candor and macho humor of male locker-rooms with the petty details of female tearoom chatter. Written by KGF Vissers

Great concept for a show
7 December 2006 | by fishwormflatsSee all my reviews

I saw this show and fell in love with it. If you love sports and our not married and dating this is the show for you. The main character is easy great and so is the supporting cast. If you are a guy you can identify with at least one of the guys on the show. If you are a "one of the Guys" girl then you can identify with PJ ( the main character).

I love sports and I have always wanted to go to Chicago ( making me want to go all the more.

This show has a future and a good following it also has a my space page with all the characters. I hope TBS keeps this show for more then 1 season.
