  • A Cardinal tale - I swear every word is true.

    So I get up this morning and head outside to work. As I walk to my car I see this Cardinal bird on the branch of one of my many trees. Across the street the neighbors bad ass teenagers, three boys named biggio, berkman, and burke are outside waiting for their old man to give them a ride. One of the bad asses burke pulls a firework from his pocket. It's a huge 3 feet rocket complete with a base. biggio lights it and berkman trips getting out of the way. Sure enough that sucker takes off as fast as lightning leaving a trail of sparks.

    Just as I am about to utter a few mf's the Cardinal bird flies right over my head and grabs the rocket with both claws as it is about 10 feet off the ground. I mean this bird just tears into it. It reverses the rocket's direction and it crashes right on their old man's car with the bird letting go just in time and just as their father is coming out. Now he lays into the kids for all its worth and the Cardinal bird returns to my tree but not before pooping on each of the kids heads.

    As I get in the car and pull away - I have forgotten all about last night and can't wait for Saturday.



    I promise to get some pictures next time.

                        Sorry if this has already been mentioned...

                        A Cardinal fan used to amuse himself by scaring every Astros fan he saw strutting down the street in their obnoxious Astros shirts. He would swerve his van as if to hit them, and then swerve back just missing them.

                        One day, while driving along, he saw a priest. He thought he would do a
                        good deed, so he pulled over and asked the priest "Where are you going Father?"

                        "I'm going to give mass at St. Francis Church, about 2 miles down the road," replied the priest.

                        "Climb in Father! I'll give you a lift!" said the man.

                        The priest climbed into the rear passenger seat, and they continued down he road. Suddenly, the driver saw an Astros fan walking down the road, and he instinctively swerved as if to him. But, as usual, he swerved back into the road just in time. Even though he was certain that he had missed he guy, he still heard a loud "THUD."

                        Not understanding where the noise came from, he glanced back in his mirrors but still didn't see anything. He then remembered the priest, and he turned to the priest and said "Sorry Father, I almost hit that Astros fan."

                        "That's okay," replied the priest, "I got him with the door."
