My hero is the kind of guy
who hang glides upside down,
who skis on one ski, backwards,
and yells “Score!” when he falls down.

He’s happy to be tackled by
a fullback twice his size;
and getting clipped is nothing short
of heaven, in his eyes.

He parachutes from supersonic
jets, that’s really true;
and always wants to walk the coals
when people barbeque.

My hero likes the kind of pitch
that whistles by your face;
sometimes he even leans in just
so he can take his base.

My hero is a stand-up guy,
but I do have one fear:
Who’ll be my hero if my hero
bites the dust this year?
