In New York City at 8:00 pm on a hot July evening these 5 men get together at Central Park for their annual basketball game. They are very miserable and upset because the rain ruins their game every year. The rain is very warm and is making them feel hotter. The sound of people running in the park is making it hard to concentrate. The young man named Joe keeps hiding under a park bench when he hears the thunder making it very difficult to play. The smell of the sewer water is making them sick to their stomachs and giving them headaches. Suddenly Frank dribbles the ball on a nail and it deflates. The young men have had enough and decide to head to Henry's house where they will have some pizza at their pajama party.
