  • When Arlen High's football field has some problems, the field's caretaker risks losing his job just a year before his pension. Unwilling to see that happen, Hank and the guys step in and help out.

    When the Arlen High's groundskeeper risks losing his job just short of his pension, Hank becomes his advocate. However, when the first game of the season has to be forfeited because of the man's incompetence, Hank has to go a little further in his support. Working secretly at night, Hank and his friends put the field into great shape but when they become little too successful, and that success goes to the groudskeeper's head, they are forbidden from helping out anymore. Rather than see his team forfeit the championship game, Hank has to take action.

    This is yet another episode that highlights the importance of high school football to the average Texan. Once again, King of the Hill offers up insightful, genuine comedy that would be a hit regardless of its format. This show is a slice of the very best part of American culture and shows how people will go out of their way to help one another when they can. It's a great show.
