Who said Monday’s Premier League relegation matchup between Blackburn and Wigan would be bad television?
The early moments of the game were highlighted by what we’ll call, “The Ewood Park Chicken,” which made a cameo on the field, pecking around Wigan’s penalty box.
Wigan goalie Ali Al-Habsi and Blackburn striker Yakubu could teach “Survivor” contestants a thing or two about how to catch a chicken. They cornered the chicken into the net and used teamwork to trap the fowl.
Blackburn’s owners, Indian chicken kings, Venky’s, undoubtedly were the inspiration for the chicken.
