Popeye is getting out all his track and field equipment. He is planning to head out to the stadium to practice for an upcoming decathlon. Pappy wants to go along also, but Popeye tells him to stay home because he is too old and might get hurt.

However, Pappy goes out to the stadium anyway. Eugene the Jeep helps Pappy teach his son a lesson. Just because he is old, it does not mean that he cannot compete. It turns out that Pappy saves Popeye from breaking his neck. After that, Popeye allows him to stay around for a while.
