As you may have heard, The Simpsons Movie opens today. Woohoo! The FHF are huge fans of The Simpsons, and thought we should spend a moment giving tribute to The Simpsons' love of hockey.
Hockey appears quite often in the Simpsons. Of course, the classic is the Lisa vs. Bart hockey episode which the above video highlights. So many moments in that episode, I could barely list them all, so I'll just quote my favourite line from the ep - "I want to see you both fighting for your parents' love. Fight! Fight! Fight!" I love Homer.
But hockey has appeared in other eps too. How about this appearance by a Kozlov, maybe Slava, maybe Viktor, maybe an un-named Kozlov:
Or this classic, Bart and Milhouse playing the "Hockey Dad" video game:
I would make jokes, but we can't compete with the masters of ironic, sardonic, juvenile, mature, witty, brilliant humour like Matt Groening et al. Enjoy the movie kids.
