On The Simpsons, Homer tried to get some work done around the house with the help of an app called Chore Monkey. He even used the app to get someone to play catch with his son. That someone turned out to be 2004 Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart.
Leinart and Bart tossed the pigskin around, and Homer became jealous when he heard Bart express his love for the former USC quarterback. Leinart was drafted in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft, but his six-year career was a disappointment. He threw more interceptions than touchdowns.
Another football star, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts, was supposed to appear in the episode, according to a preview clip posted on the show’s official Fox web page. But when the show aired on Sunday night, the Dan Fouts character had become Blake, a retired FBI hostage negotiator.
Whether or not Blake was Dan Fouts or Dan Fouts was Blake, The Simpsons ended the episode on a less confusing note, with a shout-out to baseball broadcasting legend Vin Scully.
The Simpsons airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on Fox. Watch clips and full episodes of The Simpsons for free on Yahoo View.
