“Ei8hty-Ei8ht” takes place before baseball had instant replay. Doug Maguire suffers a hard loss in Game 2 as an Anaheim Angels fan and shares Major League Baseball Umpire Doug Edding’s first name. One bad call in a playoff game in 2005 sends Doug on a journey of uncontrollable fail. He encounters die hard Angels fans, an unhelpful motel desk clerk who does not want any trouble and a few neo-Nazi skinhead meth dealers from San Francisco. Also, the entire Glendale/Burbank Police and Fire Departments want to know what Doug is up to. Many lives have been threatened with another terrible call – this time, to a 9-1-1 Operator.
