Brian McKelvey To Star On A&E's "Intervention"
This weeks episode of A & E's hit show "Intervention", will feature a familiar face, 2nd string Face Punchers quarterback Brian McKelvey. McKelvey was recruited by the Face Punchers organization in late May as a backup quarterback to Carlos Morin, the obvious star of the team and local celebrity. As the season went on, Brian, a little white boy from Jersey, relished in his position.
McKelvey, who eventually began to get increased playing time, completed few passes, but none comparable to the consistency and accuracy of Morin's. His little talent and average skills eventually weighed in on his head, thus causing him to gloat and brag about his meager abilities.
Unfortunately his condition, friends say, was unsurmountable, leaving loved ones to worry about his well-being.
Why? "Because he's not that good", friends say. Brian's friends, seen in the photo, have done everything to convince him he actually sucks, and are down to their last straw. In a last effort, they have agreed to allow A & E's "Intervention" to take over.
The hit documentary show profiles people who are losing the battle with their addictions, and whose friends and families feel the only remaining option is to hold an intervention. Brians addiction is himself.
Each documentary follows the lives of these addicts, taking an unflinching look at the impact of their addictions on their everyday lives, all while the addicts are unaware that an intervention is being planned.
Each airing ends with friends, family and a professional interventionist urging the addict to undergo treatment. If the individual should choose treatment, the addict immediately enters a widely respected treatment facility.
"We never thought it would get this bad", fellow teammates say, "all he does is talk about how good he is and how great of a quarterback he is...it's ridiculous 'cause he's really not that great". "Sure he's made a pass or two but come on, any one can do what he does".
"We just want him to get help and talk to someone, he doesn't listen to us anymore."
Unfortunately for Mckelvey, under the contract he signed, it states that any "2nd string player recruited to allow the starting player a break, requires life assistance through any type of therapy, he will be responsible for payment to the institution".
Morin, Brian's mentor, will be working very, very closely with Brian's girlfriend to see that he receives all the assistance he needs.
"If I have to stay up all hours of the night with his ladyfriend to get him the help he needs, I will, and trust me, I look forward to spending time with her", stated Morin.
The show will air this coming Monday at 9:00 p.t. on A & E.
