    Coach Bobby Ross had put together the perfect Lions team. The only thing he
    was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges, and
    even the high schools, but he couldn't find a ringer quarterback who could
    ensure a Super Bowl win.

    Then one night, while watching CNN, he saw a war-zone scene in Bosnia. In
    one corner of the background, he spotted a young Bosnian soldier with a
    truly incredible arm. He threw a hand grenade straight into a 15th-story
    window 200 yards away -- ka-boom! He threw another hand grenade into a group
    of 10 soldiers 100 yards away -- ka-blooey! Then a car passed, going 90
    mph -- bulls-eye!

    "I've got to get this guy!" Ross said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"

    So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football,
    and the Lions go on to win the Super Bowl for the first time in history.

    The young Bosnian is lionized as the Great Hero of football, and when Ross
    asks him what he wants, all the young man wants to do is to call his mother.
    "Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl."

    "I don't want to talk to you," the old woman says. "You deserted us. You are
    not my son."

    "I don't think you understand, Mother!" the young man pleads. "I just won
    the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my
    adoring fans."

    "No, let me tell you," the mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are
    gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two
    brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and this week
    your sister was raped in broad daylight."

    The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says

    "...I'll never forgive you for making us move to Detroit."
