Will the Simpsons have a chance to put Springfield (Colorado, that is!) on the map?!?!

So...have you heard the news?
According to FOX, the opening of the new Simpsons' movie will be held on July 27th at a Springfield...somewhere!
They are asking for all the Springfields to send in videos giving reasons why their particular Springfield should be chosen!!
Now...color me "partial", but...I do believe that my hometown should be chosen!! And I am not the only one....if you go to;jsessionid=C30A8FF0F8518EE5A7F788BC99271FA3?contentId=2746790&version=3&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=VSTY&pageId=1.1.1
you can see the video clip that Denver Fox did.....and, if you click on the link at the bottom of the page ("Friday H.S. Pride: Fun in Springfield") you can see even more fun stuff.
Well....I (and most of Springfield!) think it is pretty funny.
It's amazing how many of the kids at the school I know...or, shall we say, how many of their PARENTS I know!!
On the second video you can link to, my cousin's son is actually on camera doing a pretty good "Napoleon Dynamite".....go Blake!! What a funny guy!!
AAAANNNNnnnndd...on the third one, when the band is playing the "fight song", the saxophone player in green is my nephew, Bo!!! (Will someone tell me where Todd is?? I keep looking for him, but can't seem to locate him!!! Toooooooooooood.....come back!!!!)
So....will keep you posted...not sure when the results will be announced, but will post here!!
I can tell you this....IF Springfield, Colorado is chosen....I can almost guarantee that my youngest brother, Guy and his sons Matt and Jason will make a trip from South Carolina. From the very beginning, Guy has been a fan and his sons just fell right in there with him!!!
So....for all of MY fingers are crossed!!
(I wonder if I could say a special prayer at a temple for this?!?!)
