Branded as a Fool!

Al gets a job at Polk High as the night security guard after an accident befalls the shoe store when an aerobics studio opens up. So Al gets the job and suddenly has a uniform, he remembers an old high school rival football team where their quarterback still has a grudge against the Polk football team for losing the city championship. Al recalls the championship game. Suddenly during one of Al's bathroom visits, a robbery and burglary takes place and stealing the trophy. He is branded by the principal in a hysterical moment where she removes his security guard patches and sends him out in shame for being a failure. It's an interesting episode when he meets Bubba Smith who plays his rival. They discuss their quality of life.
