Jones Is The Champ; Are Men Cooler With Each Other Than Women?

At 43 years of age Jones wins his first State Championship in ice hockey and as the tournament plays out Jones observes how well his teammates, ranging in age from 24 to 50, get along and he wonders, “could a team of women, with varying ages, get along as well as his beer league team?” Mike questions the notion that men of varying ages are more harmonious than women of varying ages, Jones does not budge. Switching gears, Jones tells Mike about a near encounter with a beautiful Indian girl at a Wrigleyville party, and Mike challenges Jones for not approaching her based on a stupid ethnic assumption.
