The 5th Quarter is a new mockumentary series from streaming platform go90 which takes an inside look at the greatest untold, and untrue stories in sports history. So far, the series has starred the likes of Blake Griffin, Donnell Rawlings, Jerry O’Connell, Metta World Peace, and in its latest episode Chris Parnell and Adam Pally. Here’s a little taste of what you can expect from the series with some clips from the episode “Hands of God: The Buddy Brogan Story”.
Buddy Brogan (Chris Parnell) practically invented soccer as far as America is concerned. After failing to make it as a professional soccer player (or really any kind of soccer player), Buddy Brogan came to the United States in 1960 and with his signature style he lit the country ablaze with soccer fever. The only problem is his “signature style” might not adhere entirely to regulations.
