Blackburn-Burnley soccer match opens with rooster on pitch (Video)

In UK soccer action Saturday, the East Lancashire Derby match got off to a slow, but funny, start when fans of the visiting Burnley Clarets released a rooster onto the pitch in the opening minute against the Blackburn Rovers.

The rooster was designed to mock the owners of Blackburn, Venky's, an Indian company that specializes in processed chicken.

It only took about a minute for security to chase the rooster off the field. This rooster wasn't nearly as skilled at evading security as that rooster in Israel.

In the end, Burnley won the match 2-1.

H/T 101gg.
