Bombay's DUI/Manslaughter trial brings together a coalition of these rag-tag individuals who get together to revive one last pond hockey game before the area is re-appropriated for townhouses and shopping centers. the tournament brings back the other local peewee players as a benefit to the child and mother that were killed by bombay's gin/adderall infused automobile double homicide. Its a tale of the realism that overtakes young heralded athletes that have nowhere to turn after their short-sighted dreams of the NHL wither away. Charlie Conway, the only successful NHL'er of the bunch, is sporadically talked about in the papers and news as being one of the 1st out and about homosexual hockey players--a role he defiantly rebukes. this subplot reaches an incredible denouement when it becomes public knowledge that he and longtime childhood friend adam banks are plastered across the ottawa sun kissing and doing cocaine in the vip section of a LA nightclub. he makes his way back home to hide from the paparazzi.
the story writes itself.
Can you just turn this into a book?
