A bit of fun...

In honor of our son Adam's soccer tournament this coming weekend, we offer the following from YouTube:

In early June, during a televised soccer match between Finland and Belgium, and after about 15 minutes of the start of the game, a huge Eagle Owl flew onto the field, up off the grass onto one of the goal posts. The game was stopped for seven minutes because the owl was sitting on the field and on the both goals. It also cruised the field gently, as you can see on the posted video-clip. Apparently, the owl has a nest somewhere in the stadium. The video is in Finnish, and the audience is heard shouting, "huuhkaja, huuhkaja", meaning "Eagle Owl, Eagle Owl," while the owl is sitting on the crossbars goal.

The video is below..
