Drama

For the first time since 1909, the football teams of both Yale and Harvard are undefeated as they meet for their final game. Yale's captain and quarterback, Brian Dowling, has not lost a game since the 7th grade. Their halfback, Calvin Hill, will be the first round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys, Rookie of the Year and eventual inductee into the NFL Hall of Fame. Yale is ranked 16th in the nation. The characters are based on individual members of the football team. The Yale fullback is dating Meryl Streep. A tackle has been George Bush's roommate for three years. Meanwhile, Harvard had been expected to have a rebuilding year. Their only returning offensive lineman is Al Gore's roommate Tommy Lee Jones. Their safety had been fighting in the siege of Khe Sanh six months earlier. Nonetheless, they surprise everyone, including themselves, by patching together an undefeated season going into the Yale game. Yale is heavily favored. The game proceeds as expected. Yale dominates. With five minutes left in the first half Yale leads 22-0. Harvard makes a desperate move. They bench their starting quarterback and insert Frank Champi, a shy, introspective and virtually unknown (even to his teammates) back-up who can throw the ball long with either hand. With 42 seconds remaining in the game the score is Yale 29, Harvard 13. What happens next is...
