A pickup game with the family-owned pizza place across the street leads to Leela being the first female Blernsball player, but she has to struggle to avoid being the worst player ever.

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
