Doug is hosting a reunion for his old high school football buddies - one of whom is now in a wheelchair due to an automobile accident. At the party, the guys are reminiscing about their glory days, and Doug is shocked to hear that the team is giving credit for his winning championship block to Tom Busterman - the teammate who is now in a wheelchair. Tom can't remember the big block because his memory is fuzzy due to his accident. Doug is furious and finds a video of the game in question. He plays it for the guys to show them that it was him, not Tom who made the winning block. On the tape, it clearly shows that it was jersey number 57 - Tom's number - who in fact made the block. Doug is confused and speechelss until Spence reminds him that before that game, he, being the tortured towel-boy, accidentally gave Doug the wrong jersey, so it was in fact Doug who made the big play - he was just wearing the wrong jersey. Doug urges Spence to tell the guys the real story, but Spence is so angry about all the mean practical jokes the teammates played on him, all he can do is rant and rage about how horrible they were to him in high school.
