Such a great spoof on all sports films!
9 September 2008 | by johnmichael-2See all my reviews

Sports films are probably my least favorite films of all (only "Bend It Like Beckham" got a 10 from me), so I was delighted to see this episode spoof all those lame sports films, as well as satirizing the crazy parents that get into fights during little league games.

The basic plot is that the South Park boys are sick of baseball, so they try to lose their playoffs so they can spend their summer doing other things. But, much to their chagrin, all the other teams are thinking the same thing! Meanwhile, Randy Marsh fights a dad from the opposing team every single game.

This episode is very funny. It's nice to finally see a sports piece that doesn't take itself seriously, even if it's merely a 20-minute TV episode. Parker and Stone hit out of the ballpark with this one!
