SPORTS ANNOUNCER
Welcome sports-fans, we’ve got ourselves a classic match-up tonight!
The players line up at center ice for the drop of the puck, and the game is underway.
The Wingman takes control and sets up the play. 
He sizes up the opponents, moves in, and whips a pass to the corner.
The Rookie pushes in, leaving the wingman behind. The defense steps up, and WHAM!
What a hit!  He’s gonna feel that one in the morning.
The wingman picks up the loose puck and signals to his forwards.
The forwards draw the attention of the defense by charging into the opponent’s zone.
The wingman makes a pass behind the back!
The Rookie’s alone in front of the net...he winds up for the shot...he shoots...he scooooores!

NATE
I’m Nate.

JANE
Jane.  Nice to meet you.

NATE
Papaya King is just around the corner -- they’ve got a great recession special...

JANE
Are we still in a recession?

NATE
I am.

JANE
Why not? I’ll get my coat.

CHRIS
YOU NEEDED A WINGMAN

NINA/SOPHIA
HE’S OUR WINGMAN!

CHRIS
BUDDY, I’M STILL IN MY PRIME
YOU CALLED FOR A WINGMAN
