(It is late
night. Two guys are outside playing basketball in a driveway. They have
high-powered lights, and a boom box playing an old 'Jock Jams' CD. They
are really into it, with their pro gear, mouth guards and goggles/eye
("Let's Get Ready to
Rumble" starts playing at an extremely loud volume.)
Male #1: (lots of spit in
mouth) "C'mon, homie, I will back you in every time, you want some
Male #2: (stuffs ball) (laughs
and dribbles away)
Male #1: "You can't
take me son, you're done, son, you done."
Male #2: "You might
as well go home...'cos you gonna get humiliated."
Male #1: "Save yourself

(A person comes out of the
home they are playing at, dressed in pajamas and appearing as though he
just woke up from hearing someone play basketball at his house.)
Homeowner: "What the
heck are you guys doing out here? It's 2:30 A.M.! Get out of my driveway
or I am calling the police!"
Male #2: "You want
to challenge me to a game, bro? I'll back you into the hole every time,
man. I'll take you to school." (dribbles)
Homeowner: "Me and
my wife and my baby are trying to sleep!"
("Whoomp! There It

(Male #2 boxes the homeowner
out, thus pushing him into the middle of the driveway. The homeowner is
forced into the middle of the game. The two players bump into him often,
throw the ball at him as if he is going to catch it, and push him around.)
Male #1: "12-4, you're
getting schooled, bitch. You might as well just go back home to your mommy,
to spare any further humiliation."
Male #2: (to Homeowner)
"Goddammit, will you at least put some effort forth. We're dying,
and it's all 'cos of you."
Male #1: (to Homeowner)
"I don't even know why you came out here tonight...you couldn't even
beat a four-year-old."
