Hi guys,
I just finished an translation of the last episode of Desperate Housewives, just for fun. Can you please help me with the phrase "Big game"?
Context: Scavo's restaurant is not doing so well. It's a night and their restaurant is empty again. So Lynnet suggested Tom to close the restaurant a little earlier. But Tom didn't give it up. He ordered his wait staff to play an satisfied customers...
He said to them: Hey, nobody wants to eat in an empty restaurant. So as soon as you see someone go by... you laugh, act like you're having a great time...This is what we do...You're gonna play a group of old high school buddies. You haven't seen each other since the big game(?????). And you two are on hot date...

I read somewhere on the internet that the phrase "big game" referers to the match of the NFL league....Is that true? Or does it mean here something else?

thanks in advance guys!
Best Regards

What he's referring to would've been a game in high school. Depending on what a school is known for it could be football or basketball. It can either be a playoff or championship game or even just a game against the top rival school. Any game that is really important.
