Did You Know?


When Homer reaches out into the playing field to rob Bart of a pop-up catch, it refers to the infamous Steve Bartman incident at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois, that occurred on October 14, 2003. In the eighth inning of Game 6 of the National League Championship Series, with the Chicago Cubs ahead 3-0 and holding a three-games-to-two lead in the best-of-seven series, Moisés Alou attempted to catch a foul ball off the bat of Florida Marlins 2B Luis Castillo. Cubs fan Steve Bartman reached for the ball, deflected it, and disrupted a potential catch by the Cubs outfielder. If Alou had caught the ball, it would have been the second out in the inning and the Cubs would have been just four outs away from winning their first NL pennant since 1945. Instead, the Cubs ended up surrendering eight runs in the inning and lost the game, 8-3. The next day, the Cubs were eliminated from the MLB playoffs, and Chicago's playoff futility would continue for another 13 years until their World Series title in 2016, marking a total of 108 years since their previous championship win in 1908. In this scene in "The Boys of Bummer" episode, Homer is dressed in the same clothes as Bartman on for what many Cubs fans was a fateful night. See more »

Complete and Utter Purely Beautiful HORRENDOUS CRAP!!!
8 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is great, but this episode is the worst thing on television. Bart may be a hellish douchebag, but even THIS is a new low. For god's sake, the process of hatred for Bart is composed of cruelty, hypocrisy, and a cringe-worthy climax of Bart's mental anguish being summarized as an attempted suicide jump from atop a water tower. Even then, they STILL hate him. In the end, this is an episode that if you ever see, I pity you. It is a terrible waste of 22 minutes in which every second is regrettable, so don't watch it. If you plan on doing so, you must apparently like sadistic torture.

Well, there's also a subplot, and it is terribly tedious and awful bullsh*t. Basically, Homer becomes a matteress salesman. Whoop-de-fricking do! Who gives a crap? Oh yeah: NOBODY!!!
