Inside of a minute left to

play. The Knights need a big stop here.

Motion! Motion!

There's the snap and off goes Devore.

Tries to go off-tackle. Big hit by Jake Tyler.

Forty-four is killing us.

Get in there and stop him.

You want some of this, bitch?

Good one, Jake!

It's all good.

Call it out!

That is Tyler's 13th

tackle tonight. He is totally in the zone.

Coming through! Coming through! I got it!

Third down and 10.

Look for the quarterback on...

- Blue, 32.

- Hut!

There's the snap.

Pitch is wide to Moore.

And Jake Tyler makes

a big stop at the backfield.

Loss of three yards on the play.

Keep it up, baby!

It ain't gonna change the score.

Now Tyler and Moore are at

each other's faces.

They have been going at it all night long.

Lowe deep in the pocket.

Outside! Outside!

Now slings it out wide to Moore.

Ball's a little high.

Tyler hit Moore on the dead run,

and right down!

This could be it for the Hornets, folks.

You know, it's too bad about your old man.

The sauce. That shit will kill you.

What'd you say? What'd you say?

Tyler and Moore are going at it.

Hey, don't sweat it, Jake.

Good luck down there.

- Later, man.

- Dude.

Way to go out with a bang.

- Yeah.

- How's the hand?

I'll be all right.

Hey, come on, everyone's going over

to Harland's.

No, man. I can't.

I still got some packing to do.

I can't believe you're moving

to Disney World.


Yeah, well, I'd come visit you,

but I'm not eight years old.

Could have fooled me.

Maybe I'll meet you out in Daytona

for spring break.

Yeah. Sure.

- Who's gonna keep you out of trouble?

- Who's gonna get you into it?

Later, bud.

- What up?

- Evening feed.

It's a contact sport, Mom.

Your coach called.

He told me that you'd been fighting again.

You wanna know what the other guy said?

I'm not doing this when we go to Florida,

all right?

Then don't do it,

'cause I'm not gonna play, okay?

I'm late. I need you to help Charlie pack.

You guys start on the garage

first thing in the morning, all right?

Damn it, where are my keys?

Everything has to be ready for the movers

the day after...

- Mom, I can do my own packing.

- You see? He can do his own packing.

- Damn, where are my keys?

- I think I saw them over here!

Thank you. Bye. Just do it, Jake.

Seventy-two. By flying in a V-formation

a flock of geese adds 72% more

flying range than if each bird flew alone.

Something about uplift.

The number of useless facts in your head.

Miles from here to Orlando.

Do you hate me?

- Because of the move?

- No.

Famous Stampard Tennis Academy

in Orlando?

You better make it to Wimbledon.

Make it? I'll win it.

Here, let me give you a hand with that.

- No, I got it.

- No, here.

Guess Mom forgot to bring

that one to Goodwill.

I'll get rid of it.

You know, we could just close it,

get behind the wheel.

Nothing but open road

between here and Iowa.

- What about Mom?

- She wouldn't miss us.

- She'd miss me.

- Yeah, that's real funny.

- I got him!

- Here, get him!

You got him.

- Get him.

- Hey! Hey! Stop, man!

- Hey, I got this. I got this, man. I got this.

- Shit!

- Seriously, dude, I think he's got this.

- Damn right!

- Get lost, man!

- Yeah, vacate. You don't want none.

- You all right, bro? Are you ready?

- Yeah!

- Fight!

- Fight!

Get your hands up.

You still with us,

Mr. Tyler? Yeah? Good.

The argument can certainly be made

that The Iliad celebrates war, obviously,

but not all the symbols in this poem

support that interpretation.

What symbol or symbols might suggest a

less vainglorious attitude toward warfare?
