OK, I was flipping through the channels last night and caught the last 30 seconds or so of South Park and there were Detroit Red Wings skating around with a trophy. I haven't followed South Park in a while and am not sure if it was a new or old episode, but did anyone catch it? What was the plotline (using the term lightly)?
OT - Red Wings on South Park
and a weaker one at that. But it is cool they had the Wings on it.
It's an old episode. I can't remember how it works, but the South Park hockey team somehow plays the Red Wings for the Cup. The game itself is great, as the Wings play it just like it was against the Avs.
Funniest show on television.
Stan has his bike towed for unpaid parking tickets and since he doesn't have the money to get it out of the yard, he agrees to coach a pee-wee hockey team in exchange for his bike. The team isn't very good and they have a kid who is dying from cancer. During the episode the cancer kid seems to stablize when the team ties, so the dr (Rosenberg?) surmises that if Stan's team wins its next game, an exhibition against Denver county in between periods of a Wings / Avs game, the cancer kid will get better. Stan recruits a ringer just like all the sports movies he's ever seen, Kyle's Canadian brother Ike. Of course Ike is way better than eveyrbody else, in that he can stand up and slide the puck to the goal.
They get ready to play at the Pepsi Center but befre they hea out on the ice, the arena mgr tells them they won't play b/c the other team couldn't make it last minute. So all the kids think the cancer kid is going to die since they're not going to be able to win. The Avs then come out and volunteer not to play so the kids can go out and try to win. Stan thinks this is nuts, and from the opening face-off on, the Wings score 30 goals in the 3rd period and bash the heads in of 7 yr olds (including one funny scene where a kid is lying on the ice after being checked and then gets hit in the head with a puck spitting out three teeth and lots of blood). Wings win 32-2 and "We are the champions" starts playing and they start skating around with the Cup while Stan just stares in disbelief at all the carnage.
Not a great episode, but unique in that the Wings are featured and there's no Cartman or Kenny (in fact the only South Park kid regulars are Stan, Kyle and Ike)
Three seasons ago, Stan gets punished into coaching a peewee hockey team that is horrible and is beat to a pulp every week. So while he faces his demons about failing his own peewee hockey season, he eventually has a kid on a death bed say win the state championship for me. The opposing team doesn't show up, so instead they play the redwings. They lose, the kid dies, the kid blames Stan.
I have no clue... So I wrote the long ep recap, you cut and paste from an established source. WHo's the idiot now? Point restored sir.
I think the creators are both Av's fans and it's pretty funny how they have the wings destroy a bunch of 7 year olds.
"Hey coach? Can you make my cancer go away?"
Yeah, Matt and Tre have to be Avs fans since they're from Colorado. I know a lot of folks think this is a weaker episode, but I really like it. I lost it when I saw the Wings just beating the living hell out of 7 year-olds during a hockey game. Fantastic.
Osgood gave up 2 goals to 7 year olds?
