Pigeons Pooping on Bengals Fans
 
I'm laughing so hard at the perfect poetic justice of it all, I barely know what to say...(definitely dead set against shooting them, however....hope they try other methods first)

Cincy officials concerned about birds pooping on fans

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Paul Brown Stadium officials want permission to shoot down pigeons that are pooping on Bengals fans' heads -- and in their food and beer -- during games.

Eric Brown, managing director of the stadium, sent a letter asking the city to allow stadium employees to kill the birds with an air-powered pellet rifle.

Brown says no shooting would take place on game days.

Bengals officials say fan noise used to drive pigeons away during games but apparently the birds have adapted. Pigeon poop is becoming a big problem throughout the NFL, but no one has come up with a foolproof solution yet.

Team officials say they're looking into other ideas to get rid of the birds, including the use of strobe lights, noise makers, fake owls and netting.

Oh, crap - no pun intended - I did it again with the duplicate threads. So sorry, moderators. You may feel free to beat me about the head with a wet noodle.

Umm...that would be her, not him.

But you're right - it's probably suitable punishment for me, since I'm now a repeat offender! :wink02:
