Bought new, listened to once. Box has light edge wear. 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 minutes to go, Rick provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he became a national laughingstock 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 team that 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 quarterbackâ€“for 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 playerâ€“any former NFL playerâ€“at their helm. So Rick reluctantly agrees to play for the Panthersâ€“at least until a better offer comes alongâ€“and heads off to Italy. He knows nothing about Parma, has never been to Europe, and doesnâ€™t speak or understand a word of Italian. To say that Italy holds a few surprises for Rick Dockery would be something of an understatement.
