1. Name of many cities. The largest and most well-known Springfield is in Massachusetts. It's home to the Basketball Hall of Fame. Springfield, IL is also well-known by elementary school students as a state capital, but otherwise, it's a backwater. Springfield, MO is even more of a backwater but it's home to SW Missouri State Univ (SMS). There are also smaller Springfields in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Oregon and Ohio. None of these are worth discussing.
2. The fictional town where TV's The Simpsons live. It's not supposed to be in any state; rather, it's Springfield, USA. Identifying it with any real city would be a real embarassment because this Springfield is home to a fake barf factory.
