* SoapboxSadie: Lampshaded. Lisa at first tries out the squad to challenge the notion that girls can't play football, but Ned is all the more happy to let her join and points out they've already got three girls on the team. Deflated, Lisa switches tactics and accuses the team of animal cruelty for using leather footballs, until she's told the balls are synthetic and the money spent on them goes to charity. She promptly runs off in tears.
