Eddie is a New York limo driver and a fanatical follower of the New York Knicks professional basketball team. The team is struggling with a mediocre record when, in mid-season, "Wild Bill" Burgess, the new owner, as a public relations gimmick, stages an 'honorary coach' contest, which Eddie wins. The fans love it, so "Wild Bill" fires the coach and hires her. She takes the bunch of overpaid prima donnas that make up the team and turns them around. But the owner hopes to move the team, now the darling of the New York fans, to St. Louis. He may OWN the team, but it BELONGS to the city and the fans!Written by

If genocide and SIDS weren't enough to convince you that there is no altruistic higher-power, then Eddie will set you straight. Eddie did more than follow a formula. It told you the formula as it was fulfilled so that you could tell that they followed it. Have you ever seen a movie that involved sports? Eddie stole from that movie, or at least the spirit of that movie. The characters are so thin that they are considered by physicists to be vacuums, and Whoopie Goldberg phoned it in the way a tired grad-student phones in a bomb threat to get out of a mid-term. If your faith is weak as it is, don't test it via the Eddie litmus test.
