The media says the meteorite shower is going to be spectacular tonight.  He's home alone so Brady heads out onto the roof to watch the show.  And it is a darn good thing he did.  If he had just gone to bed, he'd be dead now.  You see, a meteorite crashed through his roof and smashed right into his bed.  Right where he would have been lying!!!  Brady is thrilled with his little space rock and actually sleeps with it.  The next day, he starts to feel a little charge going through his body.  As if he was getting an electrical shock.  And he is able to beat his cousin in basketball and not even have his asthma act up.  Could this have anything to do with Fred, the space rock?
