Death and Texas

Barefoot Bobby Briggs, the legendary running back for the Austin Steers was today sentenced to die for his role in the armed robbery/murder at a downtown Stop ‘n Go convenience store… It’s five years later, and Bobby’s appeals have all but run out, and the Austin Steers are – once again – on the march to the Superbowl, with a lock on the playoffs, when their wide receiver has a season ending injury. With their playoff hopes in shambles, the Governor of Texas controversially offers Bobby a furlough — from death row — to help rescue the Steers’ post-season hopes, and even play in the Superbowl.
