Top 100 Sports Moments on Some fun memories from hilarious episodes, here, although I'm not exactly sure how Miss Vicki's tap dancing class (#85) is considered a sport. Tappa-tappa-tappa.
  • Whee! Thanks opie! I'm glad to see you took my advice to keep it coming.
  • Great list.. For some odd reason I'd completely forgot about the 'Homer at the Bat' episode, that used to be one of my favorites as a kid. Especially with all the great baseball stars in it. I haven't seen it in ages, I guess I'll be downloading it now.
  • I made sure through hours of research that this article has only appeared once in the history of everything as not to anger the masses again.
  • seen it. ;) bah - yeah that's up on my top 10 too - right under "deep space homer" "No hustle either, Skip." -"That's right Darryl."
  • Marge: I think owning the Denver Broncos is pretty good. Homer: Yeah, yeah. Marge: Well, explain to me why it isn't. Homer: (sighs) You just don't understand football, Marge. Great post, O&O!
  • Argh! Want more! O&O, I'm guessing tapdancing's been on ESPN, because the writer says if it has, then it's a sport. So, uh, yeah.
  • On reflection, there is no doubt in my mind that tapdancing has been on ESPN at one time or another.
  • "my cat's breath smells like cat food." I'm exploring the "sport/not a sport" issue weekly over at Sportsfilter's "Locker Room", which I am far too modest to self link to. Cause you know I'm real modest that way.
  • I don't know how much ESPN can define what's a sport or not. After all, they show freakin spelling bees.
  • Their defining moment for me was the day I was channel-surfing while living in CA and ESPN was showing a NZ show called Tux Wonder Dogs, where teams of four dogs (and their owners) go around an obstacle course, fetch objects while not being distracted by sausages, etc. Imagine my utter delight. No, seriously. (Our boarder couldn't understand a word the kiwi host was saying, either. She asked why it wasn't subtitled.)
  • I love minority sports. As has been made clear before... Posts about the Simpsons are always good. I was pleased to see 'whacking day' included as a sport.
