Boomer is the janitor at Walter Peterman High School. A long time ago, in a year called 1996, he was an upcoming track star at Walter Peterman High School. Boomer could run, throw javelins, he could do it all. That was until the 1996 State Championship, where Frank Ditkis forever destroyed the unwritten legacy of Boomer.
The year is 2012. There is an opening for the track coach position. Boomer wants the job, overtime pay and all, but so does Frank Ditkis, who is now the aerobics teacher.
