Mike Tyson LOVES The Pigeon – kid you not
Seems even totally bonkers ear munching Mike Tyson loves us pigeons.
My pal Fritz sent me this – great story! Tyson’s gone and bought himself a load of Roller Pigeons. No – these aren’t pigeons on skates – that would be cool – they’re mad as fuck suicide dudes:
“As a breeder, Tyson prizes his “deep rollers,” the kamikaze-style pigeons who tumble with slight drops, then execute breathtaking dives. Those birds fly miles overhead, then nose-dive into a death-defying deep roll, hurtling their bodies downward before safely pulling out at the last moment — or slamming to the ground.”
Wonder how they learned to do that shit. Landing’s never been my thing. If ever there was a pigeon olympics, they’d clean up in the ‘synchronised dive bombing’ coz us London pigeons suck at it.
Cheers for the story, Fritz.
