It Just Doesn't Matter

Even if we play so far above our heads that our noses bleed for a week to ten days; even if God in Heaven above comes down and points his hand at our side of the field; even if every man woman and child held hands together and prayed for us to win, it just wouldn't matter because all the really good looking girls would still go out with the guys from Mohawk because they've got all the money!

Meatballs and My Bodyguard were movies I must have seen about a thousand times each when my family got HBO back in 1981. Chris Makepeace freaking owned that channel back in the day.
