Ted and his tennis double partner - spouse Allison seek therapy as their game is going down the drain. They are also swingers, claiming it's not a marriage challenge, yet that coincides suspiciously. Ray Jr. is not amused that his father's fiances don't allow paying for a distance college, so he desperately seeks to finance a fantasy football scheme suggested by his weed-growing knave mate Adam. TK remains in denial of tranquilizer abuse, although it compromises his performance and wrecks his sports drink commercial contract, leading to a break with his agent Rob Maroney, the only protector against exposure by Nico and Matt. However the clubs staff his bigger troubles: someone recorded all conversation in the Hawks building and offers the tapes to the press. Written by KGF Vissers
