Lisa wants to spend some quality time with her father on a Sunday afternoon, but Homer is only annoyed since he is watching football (and losing money from his poorly placed bets). When a 1-900 football hotline and other resources don't work out, a desperate Homer asks Lisa for whom she thinks will win the next game. Lisa's pick turns out to be right, and Homer invites her to spend time with her on the next Sunday.
