When the Mighty Fall, Give Us a Call (Hometown Heroes theme)

Post by gunsofchekhovia » Sat Nov 02, 2013 9:18 pm

He'd had enough of baseball, and the game enough of him.
As a plumber or a carpenter his prospects were quite grim.
The townsfolk never quite forgave what happened on that day,
and he couldn't flip a burger without being chased away.

They ridiculed and shamed him. They never would let up.
He tried his hand at dog grooming but saw nary a pup.
A fisherman, mechanic, electrician, fireman, cop...
Each attempted enterprise was nothing but a flop.

But there's one thing that man can do that meets with their approval.
It's Casey's Pest Control. They specialize in bat removal.

What is truly genius is the implicit pun of Casey at the Bat.
