      • Narrator: High school. It's a complicated time. Full of passion. Excitement. The crazy joy of being young. At my school one spring, all that craziness came together in one word - basketball. For us, it was more than just a game... it was ritual. For the first time in years, McKinley High had a winner. And we owed it all to one guy. Number eleven... Bobby Riddle. Forget Couzy... forget Maravich... Bobby was magic. A genuine high school hero. Well, to me, anyway. And I should know. After all... Bobby had the locker next to mine.

      • Narrator: And then that man... "Mr. Pencil stubs and Alka-Seltzer"... "Mr. Pay the bills and go to work"... said something I'll never forget. JACK: Let me tell ya something, Kev... it's not easy being a hero. And I knew he wasn't talking about Bobby Riddle. He was talking... about himself. Some heroes pass through your life and disappear in a flash. You get over it. But the good ones, the real ones, the ones who count - stay with you for the long haul. The thing is, after all these years, I couldn't tell you the score of that game. What I remember is... sitting in that diner, up late... being young... drinking coffee with the only real hero I ever knew. My Dad - Jack Arnold. Number one.
