(The epsiode begins with Lloyd playing at the Arcade with his friends)
Lloyd: Woo! 5,000-zilch!
Frined (name is Carl): Alright, alright, you got me, but watch let's play a different game!
Lloyd: What do you mean?
Carl: Let's play Football XD.
Friend 2 (called Mike): I have that game at home! It's my favorite!
Lloyd: Okay, let's play it. But, because it's new, I'll go easy on you guys.
(The first game they played: Lloyd was cremaed: 100 - 0)
Lloyd: Okay. It's time to crank it up a notch.
(Second game they played 150 - 0)
Lloyd: Okay, time to kick in Green NInja skills.
(Third game: 200 - 0)
Lloyd: Not fair!
Carl : Yeah it is! Haha!
(Lloyd walks up to the counter, where the manger is seated)
Manager: So, hows it going, "Green Ninja?"
Lloyd: Quiet. I'm trying to meditate myself. How come I stink at that game? I NEED to know how to play it.
Mangager (whispering): Well...
Manager: Look, there was this guy, he came rushing in. He told me he wanted to return it, I can keep the change. It was in a gold case. Guess what was in it?
(The manger ducks under the desk, and grabs the golden case. He opens the case, revealing a standered Football 101)
Manager: I wanna see you kick their butts agian. No charge.
(Lloyd grabs the disk and runs out the arcade)
5 hours later...
(At the dinner table at the Bounty)
Cole: Where is Lloyd?
Zane: He is still in his room, playing that dumb video game.
Kai: For 5 hours? Thats gotta be a new record.
Jay: No, remeber that game he was hooked on, I think it was Ninjaman? He played that nonstop for at least seven.
Cole (looks at watch): We had better start watching the football game. It starts at 6:00 P.M.
(In Lloyd's room)
Lloyd: Must... beat... game.
Jay (throught the door): Lloyd, you wanna start eatching football?
Lloyd: Don't worry, I'll see the scores at half time.
1 hour later...
Lloyd: Haha! I destroyed the Thunders! Well, it's halftime, let me see the plays.
(He turns to halftime)
Announcer: Welcome to halftime! The Ninjago Ninjas completely destroyed the Thunders! 50 - nothing!
Lloyd: What a conicidense! Those are MY halftime scores!
Announcer: Let's take a look at the amazing plays! Wact as he double dips the ball!
Lloyd: Hey! I did that EXACT same play!
(Lloyd then begins to watch his same plays that he did. At first, he thinks it's all just a funny coincidense, but then... maybe there is something, umm... unateral. Maybe he's actually playing the games)
Lloyd: Haha! Well, I might as well see what see if I can control the players! Ha!
(Lloyd resumes the game, but then, instead of playing the video game, he looks at the real thing from channel 4)
Lloyd: Its like I'm controling the players!
(Lloyd rolls to the right, then the left)
Lloyd: Tuck Packer, the quarterback, is actually doing what I'm controlling!
(Lloyd hail maries to a touchdown)
Announcer: ANOTHER touchdown!
(Lloyd hears the ninja's cheers from the other room)
Lloyd: This is the best day of my life!
Announcer: Thats the end of the game, folks.
(Cole jumps throught the door)
Cole: You should have seen it! You should have seen it! It was amazing!
Jay: Can't wait till next game! This is the best game ever!
The next day...
Lloyd: I'm really nervous, I mean, I'm in conrtoll of this. I can do it. Now I know how players feel.
(Lloyd begins playing, as usaul, he picks the team the Ninjago Ninjas and their oopents for the day: The Snakes)
Lloyd: Let's do this.
(First quarter: Lloyd let the other team score)
Lloyd: It's okay, I still have another 3 quraters.
( 2nd and 3rd quarter: He let the oppenents score 2 times.)
Lloyd: How can I let this happen! 21 - 0!
( 4th quarter: Lloyd gets a feild goal)
Announcer: Aw man, looks like the ninjas didn't do so well this time. Oh well. Maybe tommoroww!
(Jay barges into the room): I don't understand! We did so well yesterday!
Zane: Are odds were in our favor...
Lloyd (to himself): Aw man, I not only let my friends down, but also Ninjago. A sickning feeling.
Lloyd (out loud): I'm going to bed.
(Lloyd is in bed)
Lloyd: I don't know whats wrong! Its a video game, I'm the best! How could I lose. Wait a moment...
(Lloyd lays in silence)
Lloyd: This video game isn't a blessing, its a curse! A jinx! When I lose, I let down Ninjago and my friends.
The next day...
(Back at the arcade)
Lloyd: I'd like to return this game.
Lloyd: I just wanna be a plain, old fan. Who has nothing to do with the outcome of the game.
