In the chapter "Enter...Wallace Wallace," Wallace goes to the football game on Saturday with the hood from his coat covering his hair and a scarf covering his mouth and nose, so no one can notice him. Unfortunately, it's very hot, and as he sweats underneath all his layers, an old man, thinking he's being kind, pulls down his hood, revealing Wallace to an acquaintance only a few yards away. The acquaintance starts to call people's attention to Wallace's presence, and before long, news of his appearance is being passed around the stadium.

The news gets to the football pitch, where the team is on the verge of a rare win in Wallace's absence. Unfortunately, it distracts a player who is about to receive the ball. The other team turns it over and runs over for the winning touchdown.
