Rob Oliver (I)

Trivia:

Rob is a Detroit Tigers fan. When he directed his first Simpsons episode, 'The Boys of Bummer', he modeled the Bill Buckner-esque character -- Joe LaBoot -- loosely on Sparky Anderson, the Tigers manager during their championship 1984 season and during Rob's childhood. See more trivia »
