Trivia

The Polk High Dots are playing their rivals, another football team named The Aryans. "Aryan" is a common word in white power terminology. Throughout the game, the last names of some of the Aryan players are visible; you also hear the Polk High game announcer referring to several of the Aryan players by their last names. All of the names visible or announced are the names of senior officials or high-ranking military officers in the Nazi regime of Adolf Hitler during World War II. See more »

Kelly becomes a cheerleader if only for one game!
28 May 2009 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

There are lot of offensiveness in this episode particularly when James Polk High football team competes against the other team with unusual German names. I didn't pay much attention to that. Kelly wants the Polk high player to pay attention to her instead of the game so she and Bud come up with a plan to become a cheerleader. The guy is a goal away and a championship away from breaking Al's beloved record. It's interesting to see the Bundys and Rhoades at the game. Al is mistaken for the Grange who played there. Kelly first gets the job by auditioning for Ms. Mount who has sleepovers with the cheerleaders at her house. Bud gets in on the game as a water boy.
