Athletes and birds have long been mortal enemies, but look for hostilities to escalate now that PGA golfer Tripp Isenhour has upped the stakes by killing a noisy hawk during a filming of How to Shoot Like a Pro.
Besides being great advertising for the show -- after all, hitting a hawk with even one in ten golf shots from sixty yards away is indeed very, very accurate -- the incident will ensure both that you will know the name of a golfer not named Tiger Woods now, and that birds will continue their war against athletes by squawking during golf games, defecating on athlete's heads pre-game, and interrupting the flight path of otherwise perfectly thrown fastballs.
The battle never ends, people. Never.â†µ
