Decker Sports Agency.


Good job in New York.

Sign 'em and dine 'em, baby!

Stevie, give me a sec.

Heading to my office now.

Hey, Rob.

Not now, mike.

How's the Boston deal?

Closed it.

Yes, love it!

Money in the bank!

Good morning, Rob.

Good morning, Mr. Decker.

Peter, hook it up in a few?

You got it, buddy.



No, no, no, no, no.

I did not say that.

No, I would never say that.

Of course, I'll run it by him.

I'm his agent.

That's my job.

Well, if we don't talk tonight,

I'm sure you'll wake me up

tomorrow with a real offer.

Yeah, that's funny.

- What?

- Schedule.

You have a 9:
00 a.m.

Conference call,

lunch downstairs,

and your mother called.

You do remember

your mother, don't you?

Hold on.

Do you want to call her back?

Not now.

How old is your mother, Rob?

75-76, I think.

Well, then, by all means,

take your time getting back to her!

Claire, time is money.

Mom ain't makin' us money today.

Next and talk faster.

You have a haircut.

Eighth of an inch. When?

45 minutes ago, but your

midnight text told me that

you wanted to see Peter

first thing this morning.

I do.

I actually just saw

Peter in the hallway.

He should be walking in

right about now.



How are the kids?

Well, they're great, thanks.

Ask me how my kids are.

My clients are my kids.

Only better.

They make me money.

This is the next

Decker Sports superstar.

Shawn Hart?

I don't...

I don't think he's going pro.

Why not?

Why not, Peter?

Well, he just signed

with Stetson University.

That's a darned good program.

No, he did not!

He did not sign!

He committed.

He verbally committed to Stetson.

He's not going pro yet, because

no one has convinced him to.

- I know, but what I think...

- Peter, there'd better be a way.

You've always been my go to guy.

You can get it done.

Now, I've cleared your schedule.

Leave today.

It's a three hour drive.

Do not come home until you sign him.

I'm sorry. I can't.

There's confidence!

You're saying you can't sign him?

No, I'm saying

I can't go out of town!

My kid's got his first

baseball game.

You're kidding, right?

No, I'm not kidding.

Look, Rob, I work really hard,

and there's more to life than work.



Look, Rob, I've seen a lot of young guns

burn out real fast in this business.

They backstab each other

right out of a job,

and that's because the only

thing they have is their career.

Now, I've stayed at the top

of my game in this business,

because my clients know

that I value God, my family,

and I value them.

Rob, there's some things

you just don't get back in life,

and I'm not missing

my kid's ball game.

There are definitely things in life

you don't get back, like your job.

Are you firing me?

- You're firing me?

- He's not firing anybody.

Get on out of here.

Rob Decker, you and I

need to have a talk.

About what?

About Shawn Hart.

You go sign the kid.

Yeah, you.

It's been a while since

you've been out in the real world.

Let's see if you've still got it.

And you might think about

your priorities along the way.

My priorities?

Yes, your priorities.

If you'd just stop long

enough to notice,

you'd realize that Peter is right.

Oh, Peter has gotten old and soft.

You are 35 years old, Rob.

Take a look around, honey.

There's a lot more

to life than this.

You know what, Claire, darling?

I think I will go sign

this kid myself,

because this is my life,

and I don't need more than this.

In your light is where

I'll find who I am

No more sadness

No more running from your plan
