Marks the return of Kyle's Cousin
1 February 2009 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

The Losing Edge is a great South Park episode.It spoofs many different sports films such as "Rocky".The episode has the boys playing baseball.They do not want to play baseball and are mad when they get accepted to compete in the finals.They decide to lose on purpose so they will not have to play baseball anymore.HOwever all the other teams are trying to lose as well(and are much better at it than they are).Eventually, they get Kyle's cousin to be on their team in hopes they will lose.Meanwhile Randy starts getting drunk and fighting with other dad's at little league games, however he meets his match when another dad who gets extremely drunk at games decides to fight him.The Losing Edge is a great and funny South Park episode with many sports movie references.
