Episode Summary

EDIT
Cliff receives a visit from Bill Barry, who coached him on a youth city league team. When Cliff refuses to join Elvin, Theo, Howard and Lou in a backyard basketball game, Theo explains that his father recently had an experience that soured him on basketball. Cliff is tight-lipped about the incident, and refuses to even share the details with Coach Barry. When the coach and his wife come over for dinner, Clair produces a videotape of the game that left Cliff so upset. He and some doctors played a basketball game against a squad of much younger lab technicians--who all happen to be women. The women defeated Cliff's team soundly. Cliff had a few highlights, but struggled other times and was exhausted by the end of the game. The coach insists that he is proud of Cliff for giving such a good effort. Cliff tells Clair that he has no problem with losing to women, but is embarrassed by his poor physical condition. They reminisce about a game where he scored the winning basket as a 16-year-old, and agree that memories are the most important thing about sports.moreless
