A Spirited Riddle

Question

Shakeepuddn    4

He's a small town dude in a big time world,

Freaking out friends as the end unfurls.

Tet for tat is where it's at,

But slow on the go for this sad cat.

Spirited kin, or so it seems . . .

Was it real? Dirty deal? All but a dream?

Don't cry to momma, she don't wannna hear,

Just cheer for the hits, Ooops! :o

It's the end she fears.

The Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland...?

No to all so far. Way in left. The word "tet" is supposed to have an "i" instead of the "e" but the system alters that particular mamarian tidbit to "molehill."

Sounds like "Casey at the bat" by Edward Thayer.

No Alethea. Not C.

I may be going in the wrong direction but next guess is "Field of Dreams"

Could it be that old fable The Sky Is Falling, about the little chicken and his worries about getting the heavens in his head?

:P

Final Edit:

Just a small town dude in a royal world,

Freaking out friends as the end unfurled.

Gettin' back with attack is where it was at,

But slow on the go for this sad cat.

Spirited kin? So it would seem . . .

Was it real? A dirty deal, or all in a dream?

Cries to his momma, but she don't want to hear,

Just cheers to the hits, Ooops!

Tis the end she fears.

I'm with Alethia's point of view.

Since I dont know much about actual sports, I'll also go with the movie theme. Like Jerry MacGuyer, Rudy, or Waterboy.

Getting back

strange behavior

Spirit kin

For some reason, this makes me think of

Shakespeare. More specifically, Hamlet.

That honor goes to d3k3 for his "O, that this too too solid flesh would melt" adaptation.
