Long ago...

...the Medicine Game was given to the people

of the Haudenosaunee... entertain the Creator.


Holy stick work!

Somebody better mail that guy's helmet

back from Syracuse.

Outlet pass and Coventry Academy is pulling

off another dominating coast-to-coast play.

Another goal for Coventry Academy!

All-Star middie Clay Watson

just obliterated a Sunaquot defender.

- Chewy, take him out!

- How did you miss that?

- Are you all right?

- I can't move it.

Let's bring it in.

And at halftime, the defending champs

lead the overmatched Sunaquot, eight to three.

It's game one of the season

and it's time for this team to tap out.

If anyone's still listening, please enjoy

this commercial-free intermission... we still have no sponsors, here on

the Bryan Sports Broadcasting Network...

...the number one and only radio show

covering upstate prep school lacrosse...

...and streaming live on

All right, guys, bunch up.

Listen, they are a very good team.

But we can be too.

We have got to bring our minds

together as one.

- Chewy, you gotta move your feet.

- I do move my feet. They move theirs faster.

Reed, you can stop some shots

if you take a step toward the shooter.

- Cut down the angle.

- I was protecting my backside.

This ain't dodgeball, moron.

Your job is to try and get hit.

And your job is to pass the ball, Jimmy.

Owen was wide open

when you got your ass handed to you.

Oh, whipped.

Owen. Sammy. Enough.

Starters, get ready for the second half.

We'd be better off scrimmaging

our middle-school team.

But I'm not gonna let today go to waste.

In the second half,

I want you all using your weak hands.

But don't you let up. Not for one second.

Remember who we are.

Scared to go back?

- I'm hurt.

- Your feelings or your shoulder?

- A kiss would fix both.

- Ha.


- Toby, you're in.

- Me?

At attack.

- Against Coventry?


Number 17 is a real firecracker.

Keep it up! Give him that shaft! Get him, Nadie!

This guy is frustrating the Coventry

offense with relentless position defense.


Number 17 is blindsided by an illegal hit.

You gotta be kidding me, man!

Here we go! It's a fight, folks!

A rumble on the rez.

Watson, Dawes, enough!

Come on, boy. Want a taste, Wonder Bread?

- Back! Get back.

- Jimmy!

Jimmy, sideline!

Keep your helmet on!


Get off of him! Chewy, on the bench!

- Get off of him!

- Enough!

Keep your helmets on.

Sam my, stop it.


- Come on.

- No! Ow!

Stay there!

They're not worth it anyways!

Hey, seems as though you got me shaking

Hey, you make me cry

You start me up

And then you leave

You're changing right in front of me

- Whoo!

- Whoo-hoo! Yeah!

Winning some wampum, ladies?

Oh, my God! Ah!

Three Tom Hot Toddies.

I want to get that jackpot back.

Don't shoot, Chief.

Oh! Five dollar free play!

Ah. Impressive stacks, ladies.

Hey. Got a fortune for me, Chiefy?

Of course. Chiefy always has fortunes

for beautiful Indian maidens.

- There you go.

- I hope he has one for me too.

Mr. Geyer.

Ladies, if you don't mind,

I'd like to borrow Chiefy for a minute.

That's impressive design work, Joe.

But how far have you gotten

with the casino expansion rights?

Almost there. I'm meeting

with my primary opposition this evening.


Joe, I came to you with this deal because you

were a closer when you worked for me.

And I can guarantee a full partnership

if you pull this off.

But there are a lot of other poor Indian tribes

out there with wasted land.

Yes, but we Sunaquot are poorer

and more wasted than most.
