This is another instance where celebrities playing it perfectly straight with silly dialogue works perfectly. In an episode with tons going on, an ESPN-style recap of the proceeding just fits.

Memorable Quote:
Summerall: “Well John, what did you think of tonight’s episode?”
Madden: “I loved it! The last-minute addition of Wally Kogen to the line-up was a bit of a gamble, but it really paid off.”
Summerall: “Marge and Lisa painting eggs? Did that work for you?”
Madden: “Ho, ho, big time! They came off the bench with a huge effort that allowed Homer and Bart to make some significant gains.”
