Beaned Bird Didn't Even Get A Base

Yesterday during a Triple A baseball game between the Buffalo Bisons and the Durham Bulls, a seagull was struck by a pitch in the bottom of the 11th inning. Not being a baseball fan, I found this story to be the most exciting happening in the sport since the October 17, 1989 world series earthquake. Obviously I'm not alone, the next time you come across a baseball game while channel surfing take a look at the stands ... even the seats right behind home plate are empty. I can only imagine the cheap seats in the nosebleed section are solely occupied by cameramen, security personnel looking for an uneventful night, and seagulls. What's worse, is I'm sure some wacko animal cruelty group will be all over this isolated incident claiming that sporting events involving anything high speed is a threat to natural wildlife and should be shut down in the name of environmental preservation.
