Wild, No Buckwild, Hawks Remind Sounders Whose House They Are Playing In


"Nothing ruins an opening night like bird carcasses strewn about the stadium. According to a source close to the team, Seattle Sounders FC has abandoned plans to have doves fly around Qwest Field on Opening Night after at least three were killed by marauding hawks."

According to Hotdog & Friends, that was the scene at the Sounders closed-door match vs. Colorado last Thursday. Apparently the local Seahawks --they are NFL mascots afterall-- wanted to send a message to the soccer folks to remind them that Quest Field is in fact their house and they will protect it. One of them even "killed a dove, dropped the carcass into the stands, and then went back for seconds."

I wonder if these birds have an agent; surely their confrontational attitude is worth a 3-advert deal with Under Armor.

Props to for Joamiq the find.
