How Disgusting Is This Story About The Denver Broncos & Pigeon Poop?
Ewwwwwww! That was the first—and only!—word that came to mind yesterday when we heard about something that’s been happening a lot at the Denver Broncos home stadium. For years now, Broncos fans have reportedly been complaining about it. But, the news about it is just coming out now. Are you ready for this? Are you sure? No, but are you REALLY sure?
Well, apparently, Broncos fans who have attended games have had one major complaint about their game experience. No, they haven’t complained about the lack of Tim Tebow (well, actually, they have but that’s not what we’re talking about here). They haven’t complained about the high food prices or the lack of parking, either. And, they haven’t even complained about the snow that often begins falling at the stadium in early October. Instead, they’ve complained about—get this—pigeon poop that routinely drops all over the crowd during the course of a game. See? EWWWWWWW!
“I found out a pigeon had pooped on the back of my shirt,” one fan said after last Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. “These are $250 seats. [We're] sitting there trapped in this kind of a situation. Any moment, a pigeon [will] poop on you.”
Another fan wasn’t as concerned about the pigeon poop falling as he was where it could potentially land. “It’s a health issue,” he said. “There’s people with drinks. There’s open food containers.”
And, the general manager didn’t really seem to have a solid answer for either of them. “Unfortunately,” he said, “outdoor stadiums do sometimes have issues with birds.”
Issues with birds? If the birds were coming down and stealing food or making sounds throughout games, we’d call that an issue. But, dropping bombs on the crowd? That’s just downright disgusting! We give the people of Denver a lot of credit for staying loyal to their team in a very, very $^%&*@ situation.
If you were a Broncos fan living in Denver, would you continue to go to games in spite of the “issues” with the pigeons? Chime in below and let us know. All we know is that if we were from Denver, we’d be sitting at home watching the game this weekend, next weekend, and every weekend from now until pigeons become extinct.
