frick You, Pelicans are Awesome

Deadspin tells it like it is.

quote:

What's more—unlike an eagle or a falcon—the pelican almost never scavenges someone else's kill. It craves warm flesh, so it gets the job done itself.

The article is from December 6. Did you really think it wasn't posted?

I'm not criticizing you, I love the article. More people need to see it.

Check the date on the article, it's over a month and a half old. The TD site search has never gone back very far.

Well, at least we found a name for the mascot - Hidalgo Pete

quote:

Here's a New York Times story from 1910, about a "marauding weasel" that found its way into the pigeon coop at the Central Park Zoo. Did the zoo's pelicans, Hidalgo Pete, Signor Gomez, and Sanchez Hoolihoo, run away? Did they stare helplessly as the weasel trespassed on their property and helped itself to a meal? They did not. They chased the weasel away from the pigeons, and cornering it against a mesh fence, beat it to death. "Even after the animal was dead the two pelicans…kept jabbing their bills at it."

Hidalgo Pete suffered a broken wing in the melee, but that's just what pelicans do. They give up their own bodies to protect their court. There's no way New Orleans will lose a home game.
