The Game is Murder, Inc.

Murder at the Super Bowl

The scene: It's halftime at the Super Bowl. The California Sting Rays are leading the Washington Warriors 14 to 7. The halftime extravaganza stage is being set up at mid-field. Up in the broadcast booth, color commentator Cory Conroy bites into his third peanut butter and banana sandwich, clutches his throat, and slumps over his microphone. Booth partner, veteran broadcaster, Vic Broderick, tries the Heimlich maneuver, but Cory is gone without so much as a two-minute warning. Did Cory get a bad banana? Did somebody spike his peanut butter? Who could have done it? Was it a rival broadcaster or maybe the network president? How about one of his ex-wives? Why would anybody want to sack Cory for good?

Murder at the Final Four

The scene: It's the second half of the second semi-final game of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. The Center City University Demons are up by five points over their intrastate rivals, the Portland Panthers. Demons head coach Billy Cromwell is throwing a fit about one of the referee's calls. In mid-tirade, Billy falls down dead. Was that a flagrant foul? Everyone associated with college basketball either loves Billy or hates him. But did someone send him to the final game in the sky? Was it the rival coach, the referee, the tournament chairman, the sponsor, or maybe one of his own players?
