For Rodney Poole, a friendly and unassuming lover of clever wordplay and television sports, Boyle's Irish Pub is a haven of good cheer, pleasantly pointless conversation, elaborate jokes, heated trivia contests, well-poured pints, and familiar faces. The pressures and demands of the outside world hold no sway there--the crowd at Boyle's is his family. But reality cannot be kept at bay forever, and now Rodney's best friend and partner in inertia is getting married and moving to Chicago. The prospect of being single, middle-aged, unemployed, and without his pal to while away the nights with is causing Rodney to rethink--or rather, create--his priorities.
