Tammy: What are you doing this year to give your team an advantage?
Phillip: I have a few tricks up my sleeve. We’re going to have a winning season.
Tammy: Are you going to start Wang?
Phillip: No, I’m redshirting Wang. I want him to sit out his first year so he can sharpen his skills.
Tammy: I’m really surprised. Wang is already a great player and too good to sit on the bench.
Phillip: Trust me, I know what I’m doing. He’ll get an extra year of eligibility and be even better next year.
Tammy: If you say so. What about Schwartz?
Phillip: He’s out for the season. He’s hurt and won’t be able to play.
Tammy: That’s a major blow! He’s your star player, right?
Phillip: He’s a loss, but I have a secret weapon.
Tammy: Oh, yeah?
Phillip: This new player, Pierre, is going to give the other teams a run for their money.
Tammy: Who is he?
Phillip: Just somebody I recruited. Let’s just say he’s talented beyond his years.
Tammy: Huh? You mean he’s a ringer? You’re bringing in a ringer?
Phillip: Of course not. He’s just a little more experienced than my other players and he’ll be a force to be reckoned with.
Tammy: Only if nobody catches on.
Phillip: Catches on to what?
