About this deal

Greg states a flashback that he's only been to one professional sports game in his lifetime, when Frank took him to the city to watch a football game. Eventually, the other teams' coaches felt sorry for them so they tried a lot of things to help them win but that still didn't change the results so the rec league dropped down Greg's team level, but they still couldn't win. Whenever Kevin got the ball, he had to take out his retainer so people would understand him and eventually Franklin caught on so they kept stealing the ball while Greg's team was trying to follow Patel's new plays. At that point the Men's League figured out that Preet was the only good player on Greg's team so whenever he would get the ball the Men's League would be all over him. They initially decide to forfeit, but Susan wants the game to be fair for everyone, and she trades Greg to the other team.

After the game ended Susan said that Patel should've run different plays and that Greg should've gotten more playing time. The game starts off with Slacksville hitting a three-pointer, they then stole the ball and made another one and now they were twenty points ahead. There are practice 3 times a week plus one on Sunday and on top of that he has to keep up with his schoolwork. He says that the reason why Plainview hates the surrounding towns is because they always destroy them in sport and the town that they hate the most is Slacksville.

Greg eventually got escorted to the Child Finder Station and had been shown on the Jumbotron, which made Greg use his chance to get fan of the game, in front of the entire audience. Due to the custodial staff having to take care of lunch, the principal is forced to give everyone the day off. After that they started running a full-court press and they were blocking Greg's team from passing the ball and everytime there was a rebound, the Slacksville center would steal the ball. Greg stated there was a " Fan of the Game" which he was interested in, so he started doing stunts which could get you on there. They scored almost all of their points from the free throw line, and the final scored was 33-17 for the Stage Whisperers.After a disastrous competition at school, Greg decides that he's officially retired from ANY kind of sport! Preet was frustrated so when he got the ball, he ran to the other side of the court, and he decided to dunk it. Upon learning about a Field Day at school, where the winning homeroom gets a day off, he begins to train for the day.

During halftime Patel gave another speech how they were representing their town and that they needed to fight hard. Preet would hit some crazy shot and someone on the Funky Dunkers would score at the other end and that went on for a while.

In the top drawing of page 40, it is shown that Greg's mom bought Chickpea Clusters even though in Wrecking Ball it is revealed that Greg is allergic to chickpeas. Greg stated that he finally knew how it felt like to be the hero and why people were always making a big deal about sports. Slacksville kept running up the score and soon they hit 101 points and since the board could only display 2 digits, it looked like Greg's team was ahead.
