Storyline

Despite not usually into such things, Sam has agreed to play in a charity baseball game. The gang at the bar soon find out why: the opposing team is comprised of Playboy Playmates. Sam is relishing the fact of having his cake and eating it too. But beyond the Playmates, he is taking this game seriously, practicing his pitching with Carla. On game day, he blows the Playmates away with eighteen strike-outs and a 7-0 final score. He's thrilled that his baseball arm is back. But the Playmates are now mad at him and did not come back to the bar after the game as they said they would. Although Sam stands up for what he did, Diane puts it into perspective for him: he would rather beat the Playmates than to sleep with them. With that, he realizes that he is a sick man with his competitiveness. However, upon further discussion, Sam exposes the fact that Diane is just as competitive.

King of the Hill (#3.15)
11 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam agrees to play in a charity baseball game. Everyone is surprised but it turns out that the opposing team are the Playboy Playmates and he is having a great time with it! Only during the game he beats them without caring that he makes them mad and won't be able to sleep with them. Diane confronts him about his over competitiveness. But Sam brings it up that she is very competitive as well and they end up playing ping pong the whole day.

Not a bad episode. Only it seems to me that Diane would be competitive in different areas than Sam. Coach with his table that he bought was very fun as well
