that's a common argument, and it makes absolutely no sense. people don't often band together to save earth from an invading alien attack force, and people don't often narrate their own lives after they've died, and yet no one complains that the whole concept of films or novels is silly.
search, in addition to many of those already mentioned: "damn yankees." insightful, hilarious and often risque songwriting, and damn near every melody is catchy as hell. and the story is about selling one's soul for the sole purpose of beating the new york yankees, which people in the real world should be doing as often as possible.
