Plot Summary
The Nowata, Oklahoma, high school football team has not scored a touchdown in 13 years. Despite that, Will (Mac Davis) loves announcing the games on the radio. But the rest of the town is not so upbeat, and votes to dissolve the team in order to make room for a discount store. Undaunted, Will remains on the air, broadcasting accounts of imagined games that his beloved Possums actually win. The townsfolk come together when outsiders begin to take an interest in the team's fictional victories.
