Nothing like winning.

A woman was about to take her daughter ice skating when they bumped into a dead body. A middle aged man was beaten to death in a garage, with several bruises in the rib cage and fractures in the skull. It's early Saturday morning and nobody saw anything; the garage keeper (George T Odon) wasn't there at the time of murder (he took some time off to buy a lottery ticket) and in Briscoe's eyes he's not too sharp to set up an alibi that covers himself. The victim was a coach in the local hockey youth team and, as stated by his wife, they're unable to have child on their own that lead him to spend much time with his players as if they were his kids. Some players anyway had a bad temper as well as their parents: this is the right path to follow in order to solve the case.

The question advanced at trial by the defense attorney, the "rage", is something quite hilarious to be believed by the jury: rage in roads, rage in planes, rage in sports; we are adults, not children arguing in the playground.
