14 Springfields competing to host the premiere of The Simpsons Movie.

I so hope it's this one! That would be one awesome premiere!

Why?

This part....

Just a hunch.


If you want to get technical, I always had the feeling that Springfield was close to the center of the nation, but had proximity to the East Coast. That's as close to a reason as I can give.

Didn't mean to be pushy. Just curious.

I think we could stand a chance. We are centrally located. We've hosted a premiere before (although it was only Meet Joe Black). We have a ton of college students (big Simpsons fans). Oh, and we're close to Branson (not that it helps, but everyone's heard of Branson, right?). :)

Pushy? Pffft. Didn't mean to come across sounding all hung over. ;)

I hope you guys get it over Illinois. Where are the other Springfields located?

Springfield, IL sucks more than MO.

Springfield, Mo. has too many strip clubs and chinese places to eat... Plus; on Sundays it seems that everybody and their neighbor gets t-boned at an intersection down there... I've never seen so many wrecks for a Sunday before in any town I've visited...

Your town is cursed just like the Chiefs come playoff time...

Starting Monday, VOTE MISSOURI!!!

Looking for a list of all the Springfields. So far, I know of Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and Missouri.

EDIT: Also Oregon, Massachusetts, and Vermont. Minnesota wanted nothing to do with it saying their Springfield was nothing like that of the tv show.

There's a Springfield in Nebraska, but it has a population of maybe a few hundred people. I suppose they don't have much of a chance.

Any Simpsons fans on here? If Missouri wins, maybe some of you could come down here for it. Then, maybe, we could have a CP get-together.

Oh, who am I kidding?

Oops, after further review, it looks like I've shortchanged the city of Springfield, NE. In 2000 the population was 1450, The good news for any single guys is that there are only 706 males as opposed to 744 females there.

It's Illinois because it's close to Capitol City, which seems more Chicago - esque than Kansas City-esque or St Louis-esque

Luv, the Simpsons are awesome, but unless you can offer a lake house with a jet ski and boat...and maybe some really hot women (and men) to look at; I'm not in.

Did I mention it was close to Branson? Tablerock? Not sure how much cabins and jet skis would be though. :)

Speaking of Springfield, anyone else had rain everyday for over a week? Not continual here, but it's rained a few hours each evening.

After coming within an inch or two of setting a record for rainfall in the month of May, we've had maybe an inch of rain here this month. Send some of that shit up this way.

With pleasure. The days are still hot, so the moisture makes it really sticky. The AC is out in my car, too.

I literally had a new pond across the street from me yesterday after that rainstorm that came in around 4 p.m.

It is normally a drainage ditch that runs through an open field. I couldn't see the ditch or the field.

Yeah, it rained pretty hard for awhile. Part of our parking lot at work looked that way.

It's raining again. I'd complain, but I love the sound of thunder.

Shelbyville is also in Illinois...not sure if there as many Shelbyvilles as Springfields...

That vote thing is an exercise in futility.

They already know which city it is going to be in.

I was at work for 15 hours after closing the night before. I had probably 5 energy drinks, so I'm trying to come down from them.
