Two For The Money
That's my dad.
I remember that day.
And believe it or not, I remember that hit.
I remember it because of the smile
that spread over my dad's face.
Yeah, I'd have stood there all day
just to sink one.
Just to see that smile.
You see, to Pop, sports were a religion.
To me, it was about purity.
Sports was a place
where all wrongs could be made right.
I thought if I filled the whole house
with trophies for him, he'd stick around.
Well, I did.
He left before my tenth birthday.
has come down to this final play.
The ball on the Aztec 15.
Seven seconds left on the clock.
Settle it down.
Pro-right tiger. This is your game.
Now let's go. Let's go get 'em.
Now let's go! Let's go!
Sun Devils' ball.
First down and ten yards to go.
Here we go men last play.
It's fun time!
Pro-right tiger. Wide check. 532 double fly
on two Scottie. Guaranteed TD.
We gotta worry about one thing men.
After we win this game
they'll be putting cameras in your faces.
Don't give them "Hi Mom"s and sh*t.
You gotta thank somebody thank me.
- I'll see you in the end zone men. Ready?
I was a quarterback
set high-school records, won
state championships. This was pertect.
Coming at you 57.
Bowl game, national TV,
there were pro scouts in the stands,
and I knew exactly
Lang has led the Sun
Devils to four comebacks this season.
Can he do it?
Win their first bowl game in 12 years?
Lang barks the signals. The Aztecs have
eight in the box. They're showing blitz.
Lang takes the snap,
fades back into the pocket.
He looks for Ravis on the right.
Sherman breaks through.
Lang's in trouble. He shakes Sherman off,
nearly goes down.
He's looking to throw. Two seconds to go.
There he goes. He's going to run it.
He's got to get in the end zone.
And that safety is stepping up.
Can he make it?
My first thought was I could tape it
and play next week. Then I puked.
When do I play again Doc?
What's the rehab time?
I'm not sure son.
Football wasn't a sport.
It was my life.
And I wasn't gonna give up now.
I would play again.
to hold me over between tryouts.
Then one day, and it didn't take long,
six years had passed
and I woke up at the bottom.
"You have reached
"Jessica will tell you
about Nick's birthday party
"and a whole lot more about
her rocking new panty line at Wal-Mart.
"But first here's a little fan trivia
to win a VIP gold-package backstage pass
"to Jessica's Omnicon Hotel summer tour. "
- "The question... " I'm taping boss.
Look. I got a job for you. Bauer's sick.
I can't update his betting line.
- You know anything about sports?
- Yeah a little.
The racket had a lot of names.
This guy's gig was sports handicapping -
predicting winners for people who bet.
I was supposed tojust record his picks.
Thing was, I didn't agree with them.
No they're not.
Living in Las Vegas, it was easy to gauge
the temperature of the betting public.
The problem is they're usually wrong.
What's up Stu?
Where's all the action this weekend?
Everyone's jumping on Oakland.
- That's crazy.
- You think?
That game's gonna be won by coaching.
Gruden put that Oakland team together
before he came to Tampa.
He knows every strength and weakness.
Brown catches to his left so he'll have
him double-teamed to the defender's right.
Gannon throws on a three-step drop.Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
