Synopsis
Jughead doesn't care about Riverdale High winning the basketball game until he hears about the victory dinner. He's too excited to sleep, so he decides to call Moose and wish him luck. On the party line, he overhears a conversation about stealing Riverdale's mascot, so he sets out to alarm everyone. The only transportation available is a horse, so Jughead rides through town shouting to foil the planned mascot robbery. His bottom is so sore afterward that he has to stand up during the victory dinner.
