Jack Driftwood, an 18-year, veteran linebacker for the Buffalo Blizzard of the North American Football League fights for love and possibly a Mega Bowl Championship. More
Jack Driftwood is back for his 18th and most likely final season as a linebacker for the Buffalo Blizzard of the North American Football Association (NAFA). Perhaps the only reason Jack is back is to groom the Blizzard’s top draft pick, a highly-prized, rookie linebacker, Steven Stark: Stark is Driftwood’s rookie. The Blizzard’s owner, Gerald Wainscott III, at the ripe old age of 92, gets his ducks in a row to take one more shot at winning the Mega Bowl Title and keeping the franchise in Buffalo after his demise. Mr. Wainscott convinces his sharp and beautiful, 38-year old daughter, Gerry Wainscott, to join him and grooms her to take over the franchise once he is gone. He also brings back his former coach, Howard Ivy, who led the Blizzard to four straight Mega Bowl losses back in the late ‘90’s. Coach Ivy, at the age of 83, had thought the game had passed him by and is eternally grateful for a final shot at redemption. The Blizzard’s General Manager, Donald Allen Fegel, Jr., has clawed his way up from his humble beginnings as a lowly, locker room attendant to the dizzying heights of becoming Mr. Wainscott’s right hand man but has cut some corners along the way. Will this catch up to the energetic, hard-charging, aggressive Buffalo GM as he battles to take over control of the franchise?
Buffalo hosts the Mega Bowl, the NAFA Championship game, in the “Wigwam,” their newly constructed, downtown Stadium built on the shores of Lake Erie. The team battles for the title on the field as a battle for the affections of Gerry Wainscott between Driftwood and Fegel brews off the field. Fegel will use any means necessary to get rid of Driftwood and “steal” the team from the Wainscott’s. But Jack and his eclectic collection of friends will not go easily into the night. The action culminates in an exciting race to the finish of not only the season, but the intrigue surrounding the future of the franchise.
