Whether it's joking or predicting the future, there's really nobody better than The Simpsons.
Heck, they even got a Trump presidency called, like, over a decade ago.
Lucky for us, the internet's sleuths have figured out another way in which Homer called something well in advance. Let's direct you to Homer and Ned Flanders' 1999 Las Vegas bender. Notice anything in the background?
In 1999, before “The Hangover” and the Golden Knights, Homer Simpson and Ned Flanders had the Stanley Cup in Vegas. pic.twitter.com/dnm1ucNtCt— Nick Cotsonika (@cotsonika) May 26, 2018
Yup, that's Lord Stanley's Cup.
Back in '99, Homer would've had to have taken some sort of extended Canadian road trip to bring the Cup back, even in a fantasy universe.
But this year, this might just be a genuine tableau in a couple weeks. Real life.
We can't believe we're here either.
Hey @OverDrive1050 did I just stumble onto the Biggest Conspiracy of 2018? In this episode of The Simpson's, The Stanley Cup is in the background of Homer & Ned's Las Vegas hotel room! I better put $100 on them eh? pic.twitter.com/JwH1yknAYt— Adam Wooldridge (@WoolyGoalie) May 26, 2018
The Simpsons was way ahead of the curve, but they were right about one massive thing. Perhaps they shouldn't have stopped their Vegas pro sports advocacy there. Get the Lombardi Trophy in the shot, too!
