Pigeon Olympics Committee Investigates Indoor Venues
This weather really does suck arse, big time. Will it ever stop, that’s the question? Mart and me are now living permanently under Waterloo Bridge for the foreseeable. It’s like a refugee camp under here. Pigeons from all over squeezing onto what little ledge space there is with more arriving every day. I got stuck next to a couple from Liverpool last night. Wanged on for hours. Didn’t stop. Hardly slept a wink.
As for the Pigeon Olympics, seeing as the whole thing’s looking like a total wash out, indoor locations are being investigated as alternative venues. Indoor locations like stations, for example. The only snag with stations is the floor tends to be shiny and can get slippery when wet, which makes certain sports like Chip Toss a bit of a nightmare, even for the hardened professional.
Here’s the Brighton team giving it a go:
See what I mean? Just a simple pass can send you arse over tit.
Also, seeing as the London Pigeon Olympics need to be based in London, we’re talking stations like Waterloo and London Bridge which are going to be heaving.
Playable chips are hard to come by too, as we discovered yesterday:
Flat as you like. Couldn’t even peel it off never mind chuck it in the air.
Anyway, hopefully we won’t need stations, or anywhere under cover. The sun has to come out sometime, surely?
