San Antonio Spurs Guard Manu Ginobli’s Contract Lost Due to Bird Attack

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY

Well, my aunt Rhonda got her head pooped on by a bird in Disneyworld, which was one of the highlights of my youth, but this is the first I’ve heard of a bird taking a whole backpack. It seems the San Antonio Spurs like to deliver their contracts in person as opposed to over e-mail, which is quite wise and also says a lot about the class of their organization. Not wise is laying the back pack down and then allowing it to be taken by a bird, but that ship has sailed. Saw the story initially here, so feel free to check it out.

Fortunately for Ginobli the Spurs did not take the bird taking the contract from literally out of the sky for what it was.

An omen!

If this does not tell you that the Spurs never should have re-signed Ginobli, then nothing ever will. Truly believe they ignored the fates here.

Here are the facts.

1. Ginobli played only one all around solid game in the Finals last June. (Out of seven games.)

2. Ginobli completely mentally fell apart after game 6, and even admitted so to the press. There was no hope of game 7 going the Spurs way, especially if Ginobli was needed for production on the floor. (e.g. panicked turnover).

3. A bird in Argentina took his contract!

Enough, sometimes omens are just clear as day and must be followed.
