HERSHEY, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association's 73rd Annual Meeting being held here in Chocolatetown, U.S.A opened with a hilarious parody of Ebert & Roeper, with one as a credit union guy, the other a banker.

The two reviewed moves such as "Lenders of the Last Resort", "A Few Good Credit Unions", "Examiners in Black", and others. Each showed clips from the real memorable films: "Raiders of the Lost Ark", "A Few Good Men", and "Men in Black", and delivered banker/CU related-voice over lines highlighting the credit union difference. Tom Cruise delivered this powerful line to Jack Nicholson, "Isn't it true you sued the regulator to get at credit unions' business plans", referring to a banker lawsuit in Pennsylvania. Nicholson told Cruise, "Consumers can't handle the truth!".

That was followed by a fired-up Ron Jaworski, former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback who has just won one of the most coveted TV sports jobs of all, joining the Monday Night Football broadcasting crew. Jaworski delivered steely tales of football success and related the field to his new business ventures and philanthropic efforts. Jaworski drew some of the biggest laughs when he recalled one tough game at home in Philadelphia (a town where fans even booed Santa Claus) the team took a moment to turn from the huddle to watch their own fans jeering and mocking them because they just blew a lead. It broke the ice, said Jaworski, and the team came out of the huddle with smiles on their faces and made a 99-yard touchdown play to win the game in overtime.
