Soccer: Now With More Bird Killing


As hard as it is for me to believe, there are people out in the world who DON’T religiously and obsessively follow Argentine soccer. I feel sorry for those people, they missed this piece of awesome. You see Gaston Aguirre plays for San Lorenzo, and while in the middle of what was eventually a 2-1 game against Tigre he went to take a shot on goal. The only problem was that at the exact moment he struck the ball, a group of pigeons were on the field and in a freak accident, he hit a pigeon, exploding feathers everywhere. The rest of the birds flew away, but the hit bird remained. Several players tried to scoop it up as it tried valiantly to fly away, it soon collapsed to the ground, dead. The referee picked it up and took it off the field so that play could continue. “I kicked the ball and, poor pigeon,” the Gaston Aguirre said. “Now I will be remembered as the pigeon killer.”

You bet he will! Because it is totally and completely awesome. I think we all remember Randy Johnson completely destroying a pigeon with a pitch and how cool that was. I think Aguirre is looking at this the wrong way, he’s a hero! Well, to those who hate pigeons. I know someone who is TERRIFIED of pigeons, and she’d probably celebrate Aguirre, so at least you’ll have ONE fan.

And after the jump for memory sake  is that awesome Randy Johnson pitch.
