    When Debra tries to change Ray's pessimistic attitude about winning the "Sports Writer of the Year Award," he agrees to change his ways and become more upbeat - - and suffers the downside of being the only optimist in his family. Debra later proves her point by finding out that ray thinks of every little negative thing instead of the positive thoughts. When Ray finally starts feeling good about himself and his recent accomplishments, his family is surprised by the change in his personality and accuses him of being a "bragger with a swelled head." He eventually has to go to Alaska and cover some more news.moreless
