Steven mentions that his sister Hayley was giving the coach a Rod Carew in the parking lot. Rod Carew was a Major League Baseball player for the Minnesota Twins and California Angels in the 1970s and 1980s. In addition to being the only major leaguer to ever be born in a train, he was one of the most prolific hitters of his generation. It should be noted that Steve is using R"od Carew" as rhyming slang for "screw".
He wanted Jason Lee as Fletch, which the studio nixed due to Lee being too old to play the younger version of the character. So he bailed-although his track record with non View Askew projects would suggest that was gonna happen anyway.
