  • Very realistic portrayal of what alcohol addiction can do, with Jackson\'s sluggishness, his denial, his stealing of the Coach\'s champagne, and his desperation when he realizes there\'s money in his teammate\'s locker.moreless

    I enjoyed this episode. It pretty much carried the viewer through the stages of alcoholism. From the opening scenes where Curtis and his \'homies\' are getting a buzz to his sluggishness in practice, to his denial to the counselor (played by the attractive Christine Belford), then to his swiping of the champagne bottle from Coach Reeves\' apartment, and then all the way to his desperate attempt to get at the money in the locker (which his teammates stashed) to buy more liquor. It was touching to see the other players comfort Jackson after he tried to steal the money.moreless
