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".
I'm glad somebody started this. I have never read the story. I'm a big fan of this show. I just don't find any of the characters very likable and the more they focus on them the more I don't like them.
