I found this article last night, then I found this video on YouTube today. It’s not that great of quality, but it’s still pretty funny! I’m reminded of several years ago when Randy Johnson hit a bird while pitching. Some freak accident!
Aguirre hit the bird in the 2-1 victory against Tigre in a three-team round-robin for the Argentine league title. Surrounded by opponents, he kicked the ball toward the goal and in the direction of a group of pigeons on the grass near the corner. A burst of feathers followed and the pigeons flew away — except one. (To read the entire Associated Press article on Boston.com, click here.)
If I find a better video, I’ll update this post. Also, if you find a better one, feel free to comment and let me know where to find it.
