That pretty much sums upWashington's running game all daylong. They've had a miserable 42yards on the ground...
5 INT. NEXTEL STADIUM - O'NEIL'S LUXURY BOX - SAME TIME 5
Where we find EDWARD O'NEIL, the red-faced, 75-year-oldowner of the Washington Sentinels.
Sitting obliviously at his side is his wife; a once-upona-
time blonde bombshell now held together by collagen andsilicone. She's busy at work on a Post crossword puzzle.
What's a six letter word for
Tildon, you moron!
'Divorced' is eight letters...
6 EXT. NEXTEL STADIUM - FIELD - DAY 6
We see quarterback EDDIE MARTEL running for the end zonewhen he is confronted by a safety smaller than he is.
Martel goes down in one of those wimpy quarterback slidesbefore the safety can even hit him.
7 INT. NEXTEL STADIUM - O'NEIL'S LUXURY BOX - DAY 7
O'Neil throws down his binoculars.
Martel, you wimp!
He begins to cough hoarsely before taking deep breaths,
dramatically, as if Martel's play was the one that wasactually going to send him to his grave.
THE REPLACEMENTS - Rev. 9/18/99 4.
I got one foot in the grave and Icould have scored!
An assistant steps over with two blue pills and a glassof water. O'Neil grabs the pills but pushes the wateraway, chasing them with his martini instead.
Get me Jimmy McGinty.
8 INT. CONTROL BOOTH - DAY 8
JOHN MADDEN and PAT SUMMERALL wrapping up the game.
And that play may very well be thelast play of the season...
If you haven't heard, the players'strike became official at nine
p.m. eastern time. We go livenow to Dwight Edwards in theWashington locker room for areaction from the players. Dwight?
9 INT. LOCKER ROOM - DAY 9
A handsome former wide receiver and now TBS Sportsreporter, DWIGHT EDWARDS, stands before quarterback EddieMartel.
Eddie, there's a lot of angry fansout there tonight who feel thatthe players are being too greedyin their demands. Anything you'dlike to say to that?
Look, I know that five million a
year sounds like a lot of money.
But I gotta pay ten percent to myagent, five percent to my lawyer,
plus alimony, child support -(
