SAN DIEGO HIPPO CHARGES FROM PARK TO COACH’S POOL: Is that a hippopotamus in your pool, or are you just glad to see us?
FOX SPORTS has big news of the gargantuan guest cooling off in the backyard of Chargers special teams coach Steve Crosby. (2nd article down in the link)While the team was practicing in Arizona, Crosby got a call from his wife about the voracious visitor enjoying a dip. The Crosbys live near the San Diego Wild Animal Park, and wildfires in the region had burned some openings for the animals to escape through.
Authorities soon arrived to tranquilize and pull the potamus out of the pool, post-haste. It’s a poor pity, since Crosby could have produced some potential pocket change from admission payments if the potamus stayed put.
But it wasn’t very polite for the hippo to hold a pool party at the Crosbys’ without permission. Why couldn’t he have rumbled over to his beach house, like Phil Mickelson?
