He'll love her as long as he lives. And longer . . .
Like so many men in Alabama, Wade Strickland’s father thinks God created football on the 8th day. He makes Wade start using steroids when he’s 14 years old and justifies it by telling Wade he’s too dumb to do anything else but play football. After years of abuse from his father and a broken heart from losing the only girl he’ll ever love, Wade wraps his Corvette around a tree when he’s eighteen and takes his own life.
When he wakes up in the Afterlife Admissions office, his advisor named Flo tells him that there’s an administrative hold on his Afterlife Account and he has to serve time as a Transdead Trustee and prevent other young athletes from using steroids in order to clear it. If that’s not bad enough, the first guy he has to help is a baseball player like the blue-eyed Boy Scout who stole the girl he loves.
Wade toughs it out and actually becomes friends with the guy he has to help, but he runs into trouble when he meets a girl who looks just like the one he can’t forget, and she needs his help too. What’s a lovesick dead guy to do? It’s enough to drive Wade to drinking, but wouldn’t you know it? Dead guys can’t get drunk.
