The Sunsphere Arrives in My Springfield

The Sunsphere made it to TSTO! Bought it, rushed it and the boys are climbing it…

I love the dialogue too! Hope my fellow Knoxvillians share my appreciation of satire. Come on, we’re talking about a TV show that has made fun of everything from cities, states, countries to world political & religious leaders ~ just to name a few. 😉 Besides in the episode this item comes from – Nelson knocks it over with rock! 😀 I wish EA had included this as a 10s task (w/animation) for Nelson.

We’re no strangers to snarky comments here in Knoxville. The Wall Street Journal called us a ‘Scruffy Little City’ when the ‘WOD FIR’ opened back in 1982. Here’s a link to a recent story about it on a local TV station…

Anyway, here’s what I’ve done with The Sunsphere (work in progress). I love to think-up back stories to go along with the placement of certain items. The angle here is, Frink bought it off the ‘Gil’s List’ website and moved it to Springfield (i.e. London Bridge ). He’s going to retrofit it with all manner of sciencey gizmos and use it as his own private SETI ‘device’ by siphoning a few megawatts from the power plant via sponsorship from Burns and the Stonecutters‘.

Final thought: I grinned so hard, I about sprained my face when I zoomed in close and got a look at the animation of the pigeons wearing wigs!!! 🙂
