The Man For The Job

Baltimore native Mike Rowe tackles unpleasant chores, leaving him with a hit on his soiled hands for Discovery

September 26, 2006|By Joe Burris | Joe Burris,SUN REPORTER

Mike Rowe was almost knee-deep in hardening bat excrement when he got stuck in the dark, muggy cave. Suddenly, he no longer paid attention to the thousands of screeching winged creatures overhead raining urine on him.

DIRTY JOBS airs at 9 p.m. Tuesday on the Discovery Channel
