It has been a bad time to be a bird.

5,000 redwinged blackbirds (is that four and twenty?) were not baked in a pie, but fell from the sky.

1,000 starlings joined them in their fall.

Also falling this weekend were Ravens, Falcons and Seahawks.

Of course those last three belonged to the National Football League and were in their respective playoff games.

In my earlier post, I suggested that the cause of the death of 5,000 redwinged blackbirds was suicide.

I still hold to that theory.

As for the Ravens, Falcons and Seahawks...

I cannot say.

But I did notice bullet holes in their shoes.

Is a JET considered a bird?

the malcontent: It would be to a time traveler from prehistoric days.

Glad I am a Cowboys, Steelers and Redskins, fan. Which to most people, makes absolutely no sense, since those teams are known rivals, lol!

Leeticia: I, too, am a Cowboys fan, having been the Youth Director of one of their former right guards, Burton Lawless.

I WAS a Cowboys fan til they dumped the best coach of all time, Tom Landry. I really don't care for any of the teams left, but I have a coworker that has a high school friend who plays for the bears, & I also hear that their coach is a believer, so I'll be pullin' fer the Bears.
