The “Homer Simpson backing into bushes” meme is one of the all-time classics, and it’s particularly popular among sports fans. Now an Argentine goalie has gotten all meta on us by putting the meme on his jersey.
The goalie’s name is Nicolás Caprio. He plays for Ferro de General Pico of Argentina’s third division.
Here is his new jersey:

That’s pretty brilliant. Nicolás Caprio definitely wins the internet today. That being said, the Homer backing into bushes jersey could have been better.

I don’t know who Ferro de General Pico’s biggest rival is, but how freaking awesome would it have been if Nicolás Caprio had Homer wearing their jersey on his jersey?
Maybe next year.
