"The Episode Where Flyers
Shock Saints" - April 14
Take one part "The Newlywed
Game" and another part ESPN, and add Stuart Scott and
what do you get? Hockey-season filler!
This is "Teammates", the
show where famous teammates come together to play a good
old-fashioned game show. Teamwork to be put to the
ultimate test today, folks.
Today's set of
Jeremy Roenick & Sean Burke; the Philadelphia
Swin Cash & Cheryl Ford; the Detroit Shock
Deuce McAllister and Donte' Stallworth; the New
Round 1: One on One
First up, Jeremy, Swin,
and Deuce are sent to isolation at the most feared place
in Bristol, the ESPN locker room. Then Sean, Cheryl, and
Donte' have to predict how their teammates will answer
questions posed by Stuart. The teammates reunite, and
matching answers win 15 points. Team with the most
points at the end wins $30,000.
Sound familiar? Yeah, I
thought so, too.
Question 1: Your
teammate hates it when someone borrows his/her....
Question 2: What is the
one arena or stadium where your teammates dread going
Cheryl: "In Phoenix. She tore her ACL there."
Donte': "Staying in the NFC South, Tampa Bay. Raymond
Sean: Dallas. "I think he's got some bad blood there."
Question 3: More
affected by booing, you or your teammate?
The teammates are back.
Let's see how stuff goes down.
Jeremy: hockey stick. NO MATCH.
Swin: brush. NO MATCH.
Deuce: "My gloves." NO MATCH.
Swin: "That got to be LA". NO MATCH
Deuce: New England. NO MATCH
Jeremy: Pittsburgh. NO MATCH
Deuce: Donte'. MATCH
Jeremy: Me. NO MATCH
Swin: Me. NO MATCH
After round 1, the
Saints are the only ones on the board with 15. Next
round, please and thank you.
Question 1: Your
teammate wastes too much money on...
Jeremy: "His music, his guitars."
Question 2: Who would
your teammate say is the one player he/she really owns?
Swin: Lisa Leslie
Deuce: Marcus Trufant
Jeremy: Peter Forsberg
Question 3: When it
comes to game day, what will your teammate say you need
more, meditation, dedication, or medication?
Deuce: "Probably medication."
Commercial break, then
it's back to round 2... and back to Sean, Cheryl, and
Sean: "This is a family show, right? I waste too much
money on my music." MATCH
Cheryl: purses. MATCH
Donte': cars. NO MATCH. "Oh man, that was my second
Cheryl: Lisa Leslie. MATCH
Donte': Terence Newman. NO MATCH
Sean: Markus Naslund. NO MATCH
Donte': Dedication. NO MATCH. (Deuce: I need a new
Sean: Meditation. MATCH.
Cheryl: Dedication. NO MATCH.
The Flyers and the Shock
are ahead with 30 each to the Saints' 15. And if Team
Flyers do any better, Jeremy'll dance some more. That's
worth sticking around if you've ever seen hockey players
Now it's time for the
final round, Two on Who? The teammates must work
together to predict a third teammate's answer. Correct
answers are worth 5 points. It's a timed round of one
minute, and there are 40 points to be earned, so a lot
of ground can be gained in a little time.
First up: Donte' &
Deuce. They need three to tie and four to take the lead.
Their teammate... Jim Hasley, head coach of the Saints.
They match up on who's more likely to forget their hotel
room number (Donte'), get more laughs at a comedy club (Donte'),
be a good luck charm in Vegas (Deuce), miss a practice (Donte'),
& is more superstitious (Donte'), and whether their team
is more like reality TV, comedy, or drama (reality TV).
Six right, 30 points, total of 45.
Next: Sean & Jeremy.
They need three to tie and four to lead. Their
teammate... Keith Primeau, center for the Flyers. They
match up on who's more likely to get more laughs at a
comedy club (JR), be a good luck charm at Vegas (Sean),
be the subject of good gossip (JR), miss a practice
(JR), and is more superstitious (Sean). Five right, 25
points for a total of 55.
Finally: Swin & Cheryl.
They need six to win. Their teammate: assistant coach
Laurie Byrd. They match up on who's more likely to
forget their hotel room number (Swin), be a good luck
charm at Vegas (Cheryl), and deliver a bad pregame pep
talk (Cheryl). Three right, 15 points. Ties with the
Saints, but not enough to catch the Flyers. They take
the $30,000 wad (and might I say with the lockout,
sorely needed?). And Jeremy goes a-dancing.
