Description
Rick Dockery was the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In the AFC Championship game against Denver, to the surprise and dismay of virtually everyone, Rick actually got into the game. With a 17-point lead and just minutesto go, Rick provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he became a national laughing-stock and, of course, was immediately cut by the Browns and shunned by all other teams. But all Rick knows is football, and he insists that his agent, Arnie, find a teamthat needs him. Against enormous odds Arnie finally locates just such a team and informs Rick that, miraculously, he can in fact now be a starting quarterbackfor the mighty Panthers of Parma, Italy. Yes, Italians do play American football, to one degree or another, and the Parma Panthers desperately want a former NFL playerany former NFL playerat their helm. So Rick reluctantly agrees to play for the Panthersat least until a better offer comes alongand heads off to Italy. He knows nothing about Parma, has never been to Europe, and doesnt speak or understand a word of Italian. To say that Italy holds a few surprises for Rick Dockery would be something of an understatement.
