"Lesley Visser is living proof that, no matter where you start, if you are motivated and passionate, your dreams can come true. When Lesley was 11, she told her mother that she wanted to be a sportswriter. The job didn't exist for women in 1964, but her mother replied, "Great! Sometimes you have to cross when it says, 'Don't walk.'" That answer changed Lesley's life. Lesley went on to cover sports for more than 40 years, pioneering women's presence in men's professional sports. She's the first and only woman to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and to present the Vince Lombardi Trophy at the Super Bowl. And she's the only sportscaster in history to have worked on the network broadcasts of the Final Four, Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Finals, Triple Crown, Olympics, US Open, and the World Figure Skating Championship. In Sometimes You Have to Cross When It Says 'Don't Walk,' Lesley shares her historic journey. For sports fans who grew up with Lesley, her memoir reads like a walk down memory lane, full of stories involving familiar faces like John Madden, Jerry Jones, Bill Belichick, and Joe Torre, to name a few. No matter your background, Lesley's words will inspire you to fulfill your dreams. "
