ESPN HQ Turning Into A Scene From The Birds

Friday, April 04, 2008


So ESPN HQ apparently has a really really bad geese problem. The solution? Fake coyotes and strobe lights.....seriously. Via TBL....

In our ongoing effort to discourage geese from nesting on campus three decoy coyotes will be placed in areas near the ponds by the Ronzo Road Main Gate and at the Pavilion. For maximum effectiveness we will move the decoys to different locations from time to time. Please be aware that they will be visible from sidewalks and are quite life-like. This effort, along with the use of low fencing and strobe lights will continue as we attempt to move the geese to a safer environment.
Hahahaha. How f'ing scary would it be if you were coming into work tired as hell at 8am and you saw a coyote up on a hill just staring at you? You might want to keep a couple of paddles on hand for the impending heart attacks, ESPN.

Am I the only one having problems with the Red Lasso player? Every time I go to a page with the player on it, including here), my browser(both FF and IE) crashes.

@bruce:

I'm in the same boat. I thought it was my old-as-dirt computer and/or some sort of virus.

Thankfully, this isn't the worst impersonation going on with ESPN or any of its workers.

You might have gotten away with it if you said you were Steve Lavin.

I mentioned this to someone I know who works there. Apparently, they DO have defibrillator all over the place for safety already.

Wee have fake wolf/coyote decoys on the campus of my school to keep seagulls and geese from landing on the lawns...They work pretty well and freak people out who don't know they're fake.

It's all very funny until a someone get attacked by a real coyote because they thought it was fake.

Wait a minute, that is much funnier!
