SCENE 1 Bob, Gordon and Luis sit in the arbor, bored. David comes by and shows them something he found in the trash: a ticket to Saturday night's football game. David can't go, so they each draw straws for it, but they argue over whether the long straw wins or the short one. They try deciding with cards and guessing numbers, but Luis wins each time, and the others are disappointed because Luis doesn't even like football. Luis looks closer at the ticket and realizes it's for last Saturday's game.
