When "football widow" Emily daydreams herself an attentive Latin lover, lover boy decides it's more fun being real and no harried housewife ever found herself in a funnier fix. Audiences howl as the frantic fullback tries to fend off a figment of his wife's imagination before the figment carries her into the end zone.
