Does Stephen A. have a new First Take partner?
Most sports fans would love to get face to face with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith for a spirited discussion about all things sports. So too, apparently, would large birds of prey.
Smith’s colleague Trey Wingo broke the news Tuesday morning that Smith had an unwelcome visitor in his office: a turkey vulture that had crashed through the window.
The scene was just as incredible as it sounded. The bird blasted a hole in Smith’s window at least two feet tall and a foot wide.
Smith, luckily, was not in his office when the intruder arrived.
Bristol animal control was eventually dispatched to the scene, along with someone to clean up the glass.
The bird was eventually extricated by removing the rest of the glass from the window and wrapping the interloper in a tarp.
I look forward to hearing Stephen A.’s take on the animal control officers tomorrow on First Take.
