Simpsons Drop Easter Egg Into Rerun

Normally once a show has aired the first time, the producers are done with it and that's how it will air in reruns. But if you were watching a the rebroadcast of the Simpsons on Sunday night, you may have noticed a digital edit that was dropped in. The episode is called The Town and features the Springfield Atoms taking on the Boston Americans… who were basically the New England Patriots… and while the Atoms had a lead, the Americans came back to an improbable victory thanks to a questionable play. The Americans winning 23-21.

According to executive producer Matt Selman, this was just for this particular broadcast, and when the episode goes out on Blu-ray, the original score will be there. You have to feel bad for any Atlanta fans who are still hurting from the loss and looked to find solace in an episode of the Simpsons.
