  • the second flashback episode (the first was the telltale head)

    this episode was not the greatest simpson episode but it did have a good plot. homer becomes a mascot for the local baseball team and gets more and more popular until the springfield isotopes lose and he gets moved to capitol city, an even greater honour, alongside the capitol city gooofball. unfortunately, things don't go well from there and the simpsons move back to springfield where homer is telling the barflys at moes just how messed up his life is. this is only the second job homer has been introduced as having in the series, not including the nuclear power plant or the jobs he had before the series began shown in later flashbacks in the series. the other job was in the first episode where homer worked as a department store santa
