Cleveland Zoo owl says LeBron is staying in Miami

Thursday July 10th, 2014

I have a source saying LeBron is going to stay with the Heat. That source is an owl. 

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo asked a barn owl to predict LeBron's destination, and it didn't give the answer Ohioans were looking for. Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC was there to capture it on video

Also on Extra Mustard: If LeBron James signs with the Cavaliers, he will get a roller coaster named after him

The good news for Tawny is that if anyone tries to give her trouble for betraying Cleveland, she can just tear them to pieces with her razor-sharp talons. 

The truth is, as of right now, no one knows where LeBron is going to go, so a bird is about as reliable a source as any. Plus, owls are super smart. Why do you think they're always wearing tiny graduation caps?
