On Superbowl Sunday, Archie's Place is robbed.


Archie prepares to have a booming business at Archie's Place on Super Bowl Sunday. He has packed sandwiches, bought a projection television and plans to keep shoveling beer down the customer's throats all night long - even if he has to cheat them to do it. he's even hired Mildred "Boom Boom" Turner, who worked with him at Pendergast Tool & Die, as a waitress and also organizes a $500 betting pool for the game. During the festivities, however, a couple of guys drop in that nobody in the bar seems to know. They plan to rob the place, "casing the joint" just as the tabs are being collected. Their plan goes off without a hitch and even the added humiliation of having everyone in the bar drop their pants so they can make a clean getaway with everyone's wallets.
