Top 16 Hilarious Sports Moments from The Simpsons

Sitcoms and sports don't always cross paths, but when they do it often makes for some quality television. This is especially true for The Simpsons, who have had well over two and a half decades worth of episodes to explore seemingly every topic known to man. Sports isn't one that they've typically needed to rely on, but the moments featured on this list have been forever ingrained in all of our brains due to the amount of times they have been shown on television through syndication. Does anyone else remember watching at least three episodes a day, five days a week?

We tried to pick out the best overall moments plural over any singular moment of the episode because whenever you get a discussion about your favorite moments in The Simpsons, their sheer volume of work sends everyone down the same rabbit hole. Everyone seems to have a similar reaction trying to keep the ball rolling with their own memories about what they remember the fondest, so the choices here certainly aren't limited. We suppose that is inevitable when you've been on television consistently for 27 seasons.

Unfortunately, many of the clips are inaccessible online, so screenshots will have to suffice. And trust me, if they were available on YouTube, you'd have a really hard time suppressing the urge of constantly wanting to click to see the next video; it really is a trap. But, in any event, we hope that you enjoy our comprehensive list of 16 hilarious moments from The Simpsons about sports. Please don't get too sidetracked!

All time classic episode about Homer's company softball team and his special "wonder bat." After Homer hits a grand slam and becomes a hero, Mr. Burns chooses to take the company softball league a little more seriously, so he enlists new ringers, er, plant workers... Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, Darryl Strawberry, Mike Scioscia, Don Mattingly, Jose Canseco, Steve Sax, Ozzie Smith, and Ken Griffey, Jr. Hilarious moments: "SHAVE THOSE SIDEBURNS, MATTINGLY!" "Are you Darryl Strawberry?" - Yes. "Do you play right field?" - Yes. "I play right field, too. Are you better than me?" - Well, I've never met you before, but, yes..."

1 The Homer They Fall 

via simpsonsworld.com

"Homer's no boxer, Tatum will fustigate him." "Well, fustigation aside, Moe." Tatum claiming that he'll make orphans of his children, only to find out that they have a mother, to which is response is "Yes, but I believe that she would die of grief." There are too many to list them all, but this episode is nearly perfect from start to finish. The fact that Moe turned the ladies bathroom into his personal office because they haven't had a woman in his tavern since 1979 is enough reason to consider this episode a classic. Homer ends up being saved by Moe during the match versus Tatum via the fan machine, which is an obvious reference to the famous incident that happened during the fight between Riddick Bowe and Evander Holyfield when a "fan man" interrupted the fight for a full 20 minutes after he landed in the ring ropes and was physically assaulted by fight-goers prior to his arrest.
