"Bob Young had some grown running backs and the younger came to him and said, 'Give me my release now.' So Bob let loose the the younger running back.
"Soon after this the younger running back took everything Bob had given him and went away to a distant country.
"Just as he became destitute and could not even make the practice squad the young man began to starve. So he offered himself out to any other team's that would take him, and no answers for his talents were forthcoming.
"Finally he had learned his lesson and it came to him to return to Bob, 'Bob's lowliest servants have food in abundance and here I'm starving to death. I will go back to Bob and tell him, "Bob, I have sinned against the Ti-Cats and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your player. Please take me on as one of your hired servants."'
"So he returned home and while he was still far down the road Bob saw him and recognized him and was full of compassion and mercy. He excitedly ran out to meet him and hugged and kissed him. The running back said, 'Bob, I have sinned against the Ti-Cats and before you; I am no longer of fit character to be called your #1 running back.'
"But Bob told his coaching assistants, "Go and fetch the best helmet and jersey and clothe him. Go and prepare a banquet; we will have a feast and celebrate, for this my running back who was dead is alive again - he was lost but now is found.'
"The elder running backs had been working on the practice field and as they came home they heard the music and saw the dancing. They asked one of the coaching assistants what was going on and was told, 'That Lumsden guy has returned home and Bob has killed the fatted calf and is celebrating his safe return.'
"But the elder running backs became angry and would not join in the celebration, so Bob came out and begged them to come in and celebrate.
"The elder running backs said, 'Bob, we have served you faithfully for many games and have done everything you ever asked us to do, but you have never even given us a young goat so we could celebrate with the linebackers, but here this Lumsden, who has squandered your invites before, returns and you kill the fatted calf for him.'
Bob answered them, 'Yeah, pretty much, so suque it up buttercup and get ready for a trade.'"
