  • Well Mr Burns had done it The power plant had won it with roger-clemmings clucking all the while mike-sciosa's tragic illness made us smile while wade-boggs lay unconscious on the barroom tile we're talkin'softball

    this episode is one of my favourites where mr burns hires 9 famous baseballers so he can win a million dollar bet. the fact that all players but strawberry had some misfortune happen to them and the mystery of what mr burns thought sideburns were were both great gags aswell as the final song and homer's magic bat and everyone's imagination of what homer's secret weapon was (especially lenny's). this episode had me laughing non-stop the first time I saw it and a few times after that. burns' baseball advice made no sense at all which also added to the comedic value of the episode and homer passing out when the ball hits him in the head was one of the unexpected things you find when you watch the simpsons. this episode is definitely in my top ten favourites.
