Excitement is abound for Max Penn as he recounts the news of making the baseball team to his friend's boyfriend, Dante Martin. Dante is thrilled for Max, but Max seems a bit preoccupied. Dante senses this and asks him what's up, and Max reveals that he's carrying quite a bit of tightness and tension in his shoulder and it has him worried for his start in the big game. Worried that he may not be able to pitch in his debut, concern has turned to stress, which is sitting right in the back of Max's neck, so Dante offers to massage the tightness away, since he's licensed to do so. Max agrees and the next thing he knows, he's lying face first in the living room wearing nothing but his jock. Dante rubs Max down, gaze fixed to Max's bubble butt sticking up in the air.
