Weird Dream Channel

Close-up of a tennis court. A short, chubby middle-aged black woman wearing a navy blue dress walks onto the court carrying a cheap wooden racket. Her hair is black and curly - a lot of time was spent in curlers - and her dress is the sort which has a button-down top with a calf-length pleated skirt bottom (it's all one piece). The buttons are large and white, there is a faded yellow print pattern of some kind, very small and subtle against the navy background. The announcer says "World famous tennis player Mary Lou Retton is on the court." There are other people in white tennis dresses on the court, but they are only seen from the waist down, and are not recognizable. The black woman looks like she belongs there when she walks onto the court, but as the announcer babbles in that non-stop, everything ever written about Mary Lou Retton kind of way, the woman starts to look like maybe she doesn't belong there after all. The announcer wraps up his spiel with "Mary Lou Retton, ladies and gentlemen", the black woman gracefully walks off the court, the audience applauds.
