Football widows of America: This Is Your Life! Pam, Cheryl, Linda and Mary are best friends. They do everything together-- because their husbands spend most of their time watching football on TV. Says Pam: "Compulsive football watching is a male reaction formation to the stress of being civilized. It's more bonding than Crazy Glue." Mary, the new comer to the group, has recently married Joey, and his obsession is really getting to her. While the women cook New Year's Day dinner in Cheryl's kitchen they coach Mary on technique-- on how to get Joey's attention away from the game. We finally meet Joey when he comes into the kitchen for something to eat; and Mary tries what she has learned on him, to no avail-- so she tackles him!
