The Denver Broncos are an American Football team.
Homer watched Smooth Jimmy Apollo while he talked about the day's game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots. He told the viewers that was too close to call, but if you are one of those compulsive types that just has to bet, he said you should bet on Denver. Homer then phoned Moe and asked him to bet $20 for him on Denver. During the game, when there were 13 seconds left, New England seven points and Denver nothing. Homer became mad at the announcer, when Lisa came in the room. Homer told her at he can't hear the announcer. Lisa answered that Denver fumbled.
Homer was given the Denver Broncos after working for Globex Corp. in Cypress Creek. Hank Scorpio gave the team to him as a gift for helping with his evil plans, though Homer was somewhat annoyed that he didn't get the Dallas Cowboys like he wanted. They are first seen assembled in the Simpsons' front yard, practicing. The team is seen as being quite uncoordinated, however, dropping passes among others.
Homer watched the Pigskin Preview for a game between Green Bay and Denver, where Al said he was going to bet on the Broncos in this game because the Packers would be blinded by Jerry's tie and the commentary team started to laugh.
Homer watched a game between the Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks when there were 30 seconds left and the Broncos were one point behind. When he told them that they could make it, the game ended with the Broncos winning and Homer was then mad, as he didn't bet on them like Professor Pigskin told him to.
Behind the Laughter
- The Denver Broncos are a real American football team. Only one year after "You Only Move Twice" aired, the team won two consecutive Super Bowl championships.
- They played in the Super Bowl that aired right before "Sunday, Cruddy Sunday".
