Did You Know?


Leela takes advice on Blurnsball from a descendant of Hank Aaron. He wears an Atlanta uniform, but instead of there being a tomahawk on it (like there would for an Braves jersey), it has a trident. This is a reference to the episode "The Deep South", where it is revealed that the city of Atlanta was moved to the middle of the ocean, where it sank to the bottom of the sea. See more »


Towards the end, when Leela is talking to Jackie while exiting the ball park, Leela's face paint disappears and reappears several times. See more »


[Bender negotiates Leela's blernsball contract]
Bender: Hey. You put a one and two zeros in front of that or we pass. Deal.
Leela: Bender. That's great. How much did you get me?
Bender: One hundred dollars.

Leela plays Blernsball... but not very well!
7 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a Cygnoids family move into the neighbourhood and open a pizzeria the professor isn't impressed to say the least but the others Leela, Fry and Bender decide to give it a try; given that the pizzas contain ingredients like asbestos and live bees! Fry offers to help them improve their pizzas and suggests a friendly game of Blernsball between their pizzeria and Planet Express. Leela pitches for Planet Express and consistently hits the poor Cygnoids in the head! While this makes her a very poor player it quickly draws a crowd who love her 'bean-balls', including the owner of the New New York Mets who signs her on the spot because she is the kind of novelty act that will draw a crowd. She becomes the first ever professional woman to play the game but as expected she continues to hit every batter in the head and she finds fame as the worst player ever! At an autograph signing she is confronted by another woman who hoped to play professionally but feels Leela's failures have made things harder for women; this upsets Leela so she becomes determined to improve... to do this she gets some tips... from the current worst player ever!

Leela has always been one of my favourite characters so it isn't surprising that I rather enjoyed this episode despite not getting all the baseball jokes... you don't need to understand the game to find Leela repeatedly hitting people in the head hilarious! There were plenty of other fun elements to the episode too; I liked the Cygnoids and their terrible pizzas and the black box censorship machine was a good surprise gag. Overall this is a decent episode with some fun gags; it isn't really a classic though.
