Hey, hey.

Let go of him.

my transcript, for college.

Okay.

Let's see, Toby White...

Oh, Whitewood, I know you're here.

Matthew Hooper?

Matthew Hooper?

Okay, no Hooper.

Same shit. They both built pyramids.

All right.

Yo, bro, what up?

No, it's Mark McGwire.

Mark McGwire? But he's a white.

Yes, he's from Claremont.

He's my favorite player.

Okay.

Agilar. Miguel and Jose.

You guys twins?

You can save it, son.

I don't understand a damn thing

you're saying, okay?

All right.

Got the damn

League of Nations here.

Their dad's our gardener. Mom said

we need them to fill out the team.

Okay, let's hit the field. Come on.

- Jeez. Could this team be any lamer?

- So there's no Hooper?

You don't know

a Matthew Hooper?

- You know where he is?

- Right here.

You gotta be shitting me.

That's right, I'm in a wheelchair.

Okay.

Charge it.

Oh, yeah, that's charging it, all right.

Good hustle.

There you go, bro.

Another good one.

What's the...?

What's the cripple kid's name?

- Hooper.

- Hooper. Hooper!

Roll your machine up.

Don't necessarily

have to catch it, I guess.

Can't hope for miracles, can you?
