About the robbers
Archie, who anticipated big business at Archie's Place on the day of Super Bowl XII, was correct in his assumption. The day of celebrating touchdowns and camaraderie with friends was cut dangerously short to the wishes of two customers, Sam and Jack, who, after leaving another bar in an unsuccesful attempt to rob that place, looked like everday Joes to Archie and the regulars at Archie's Place.
Little did they know that they were armed and dangerous crooks who would hold up everyone, stealing everyone's belongings and empty the cash register after having a couple of beers! The robbers even make the patrons count "One Mississippi, Two Mississippi" and all of the guys drop their trousers (with the exception of Mike, who had on no underwear!) until they left the bar, and were out of sight!
