mickey gordon together at a dinner party.

The sports world is still stunned

by this controversial call.

Gordon remains in seclusion

under police guard.

Bravo, mickey gordon. It's this kind of

leadership and decision-Making we need...

In the white house.

No news, no weather,

no theater reviews.

Just that. Over and over again.

And you know what?

Mickey got it right.

Right there, live. On the spot.

He got it right.

The shot was late.

By a hundredth of a second.Oh, god!

Honey, that's

an amazing story.

If only i liked basketball,

i reallywould have liked it.

I'm kidding.

I'm kidding.

Welcome to helen's.

Can i get you something to drink?

We're waiting for other people.

Then we'll order some champagne.We're getting married.

- Fine with me.

- How's the house wine?

It's like me.

Fruity, yet oddly appealing.

Oh, we'll wait.You know, he'll wait.

I'll have a glass of red.

You got it.

I'm a little nervous,

all right?About what?

About meeting

all of your friends.Oh.

About the fact that they're flying to new york

from all over the country to... look at me.

I'm gonna feel

like a show horse.

Hey, they'll love you. You already met

craig and lucy. They were wild for you.


Mickey's the greatest. I can't

wait for you to meet him.

I tell you,

it's unbelievable.

Three months ago,

i am this confirmed single dope.

I'm living in new york, i'm writing for the

paper i used to deliver when i was a kid.

And i get your fax.

One little number off.

And ya-Bing!

We both hit our hearts.I know.

Then i started faxing you

and you started faxing me.

And pretty soon we're just...

faxing each other's brains out.


House red.


I think it's got to be the strangest way...

For two people to get

together i ever heard of.
