The Mudville Nine

Since Baseball is the Great American Pastime, it seems fitting to salute it on July 4. In keeping with this theme, Rhinos draw your attention to Mr. Ernest Thayer’s momentous and definitive 1888 poem, Casey at the Bat. What a wonderful tribute to American character, in its combination of Optimism and Arrogance.

The rules of baseball are too complex for Rhinos to follow consistently, but that does not mean We lose interest from the stands. Enthusiasm is always contagious.

One thing though: baseballs are inedible. We know.

One thought on “The Mudville Nine

  1. Not only are baseballs inedible, it surely R does not need a win to ensure joy. Mighty Casey, I think, would only amuse the Rhino heart. Oh. That’s what you said, right? Doh! (Slaps head.)
