Brad is back! Sue's former suitor has exciting news about the biggest sporting event of the year: Square Dancing with the Stars! He's partnering with Sue hoping to win top honors at this prestigious competition. Unfortunately, the event coincides with some archaic championship football game that still uses Roman numerals to indentify itself.
Actually, Mike Heck likes to watch the big game. He's jazzed when Brick asks to check out an article on it. He's not interested in the star running back they're writing about though. No, Brick is more impressed with the Copperplate Gothic font used in the headline. Mike convinces Brick that the article itself is cool, too. There's lots of soothing three-syllable words like quarterback and flea-flicker.
Brick reads up on the history of football. Soon, he's a walking, talking encyclopedia of gridiron knowledge. Axl is confused when his dad doesn't seem to care that he's watching the game over a pal's house. No biggie. Mike still has his youngest son to help dole out color commentary from the couch.
Rehearsals for the big Square Dancing with the Stars competition get off to a rough start. Brad's a natural on the grease-stained garage floor. As far as Sue's square dancing skills are concerned, well, do-si don't even go there. Time to take the training up a notch! But for Mike's sake, they should probably do it with the garage door closed so the neighbors can't see.
Mr. Ehlert is taking Frankie to a managerial seminar in Indianapolis. It's quite an honor, though her coworkers believe the boss man may have more than business on his mind when he pulls up in a motor home. Fear not, Frankie. Mr. Ehlert says, "If I wanted to cheat on my wife, I'd go to the big city and do it with an ethnic gal." Still, there is no seminar. Ehlert just needs Frankie to drive him home after a colonoscopy in Indianapolis.
