Billy decides he's gotta give his football away, but not to just anyone.
Billy finds a kid who reminds him of himself: disadvantaged and miserable. The kid is somehow sure that this is just a prelude to some kind of nasty prank, but Billy feels a little bit better.
Mango decides he wants to do the same thing.
Norm invites the Bravos to watch the kick-off from his suite, and the dudes all basically see it as an invitation to get blind drunk.
While there, Billy is approached by March Hawey and his trophy wife. They applaud him for his heroism and then ask him, "[W]asn't he scared?" Uhhh…yeah, duh, of course he was.
Billy tunes out the empty accolades and watches Dime as he skillfully plays the role the room expects of him.
This reminds Billy of the time Dime made Bravo walk patrol, and they ended up teaching a group of boys the correct way of begging for money. "Correct" meaning using proper English, with some profanity for good measure.
Some of the views being aired in the suite are—shall we say—problematic. No, ignorant. No, misogynist. No, privileged. No, all of the above.
Norm brags to his buddies that Billy had been recommended for the Medal of Honor but had been rejected. That's Billy's cue to go get a drink.
But Billy just orders a Coke. Not a drop of Jack Daniels. He's a changed man—hallelujah.
Dime tells Billy to watch himself in this crowd—they're "the deciders," which sounds pretty dang ominous to us.
Billy is subjected to more patriotic blather by the extraordinarily privileged guests in the owner's suite.
Then it's time for the "Star-Spangled Banner." Billy starts out thinking about Shroom, and the battle…but then he gets Faison in his sights, and he's the kid from Inside Out.
Meanwhile, Billy's being held by a maternal woman who is misinterpreting his sounds of lust for Faison as pained expressions of his patriotism. Like, who else doesn't make that mistake all the time?
After Billy gets mauled by some more patriotic women at the end of the song, Billy seeks refuge in the lower levels of the suite, where a few of his Bravo buddies are also hiding and watching the game.
Mango announces that football is boring.
The Bravos enthusiastically order a round of drinks while Dime's not watching.
Dime pops up unexpectedly, but the Bravos distract him with Mango's opinions on football—to which Dime gives Mango a full, expletive and racial-slur-filled reaming-out. Good, clean entertainment, y'all.
Dime uses his binoculars to spot Faison with Billy's guidance, and he gives his solemn approval.
Dime bequeaths the binoculars to Billy, who continues to spy on his love and get some people-watching in.
Then Billy's reveries about Faison are interrupted by March Hawey—the rich guy with the trophy wife. He wants to borrow Billy's binoculars and talk about dove hunting. A real man of the people, this guy.
Hawey gives Billy advice about business, philosophy, inner peace—you know, the usual football conversation stuff.
