Need I say more? Some may wonder how sports has anything to do with The Simpsons.
In numerous episodes, one of the Simpson characters is involved with sports in one way or the other. Homer becomes the dancing mascot of the Springfiels Isotopes in one classic episode. In another, Homer's bowling team brings in Mr. Burns to play.
Perhaps my favorite sports episode is when Homer leads the power plant's softball team into the league final. In a great depiction of reality, there is a beer keg at the pitcher's mound. Mr. Burns, in his Steinbrenner-ian desire to win the league, gets rid of all the employee players and brings in the likes of Darryl Strawberry, Jose Canseco, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, Ken Griffey, Jr., Don Mattingly, Ozzie Smith, Steve Sax, and Mike Scioscia.
These are just a few of the numerous guest spots by athletes through the years.
