Springfields and the Simpson Movie

I went out to dinner with my older brother and my niece tonight in Springfield, Massachusetts, which came in fourth in the Simpsons Movie Springfield Challenge. Fourteen Springfields across the U.S. participated and Springfield, Vermont won. (On a side note, I drove by on my way to Canada...I passed 3 Sprinfields on my trip)

What did they win?? The honors to host the Simpsons' Movie Premier on July 21st.

That's FOURTEEN Springfields!! That's a lot and not even all the Springfields. Springfield, Virginia which is located on I-95, about 15 minutes from where I live did not participate. Each town had to submit a video, to prove why they believed they are the Springfield from the Simpsons. Check out
the videos...too bad it's too late to cast our votes.

Springfield, Massachusetts
does have some interesting history. The city is one of the largest (and also historically the first) city called Springfield in the United States. It has a notable history as the home to Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, and as the birthplace of basketball and home of the Basketball Hall of Fame, invented by James Naismith at Springfield College. It is also home to the western world's largest collection of Chinese cloisonné at the G.W. Vincent Smith Art Museum.

It's also where I enlisted back in 1994 and from where I left in August of 1995 to start my ten years in the Marine Corps...
