He kicked the accelerator to the floor on the ZR1 Corvette as the 638 horsepower,
6.2 liter engine pinned him back in his seat. The brute power of the beast was worth the
price of admission. He’d been handed the car only six weeks ago. It was supposed to be
an SUV, but he’d negotiated with GM to upgrade to this baby with some advertising
appearances. He’d even done a TV show when they handed over the car and gave him
some driving pointers at Sears Point with a professional driver. The car had been sitting
in a parking lot for the last month and was dirty. Tired from a day of driving, he took his
foot off the gas and dropped down from 110 to 75. He didn’t need a ticket tonight.
Driving on 280 into San Francisco, he found a local sports talk show and it didn’t take
long for the discussion to get to him.
Host: Welcome Fast Eddie to Sports Talk
Caller: Joe, rumor has it that Tony Reilly is on his way to the Bay Area to sign a
contract and Isackson is on his way to Miami.
Host: The team never comments on negotiations but I gotta believe that the decision
is imminent. This contract negotiation has been long and difficult for the team and Reilly
has said he’ll sit out the season rather than accept a one year offer as the franchise player.
Let’s face it Reilly has the juice to get what he wants here. He’ll never sit on the bench
again behind anyone.
