      Funny you should ask if he was named for Boomer Esiason. On a lark, I asked Esiason on twitter if he thought Phelps named his baby after him. To my surprise, he tweeted back; “Nah”. I’m always surprised when well known people I don’t know answer my tweets. There’s a Boomer White who plays baseball for Texas A&M, also. Then there’s the dog (“Here’s Boomer”). I think Phelps just liked the name.
