Chicken Industry Fears NFL Lockout

Turns out that NFL football just might be a chicken’s greatest enemy.

Bernie Sanderson, a Missouri chicken mogul, is petrified that an NFL lockout may occur next season. If that happens, he’s expecting a steep decline in demand for chicken wings.

Goes to show you how deeply meat eating is embedded in NFL culture. All these chicken wings are primarily a hot sauce delivery vehicle, washed down with beer, by people paying more attention to the TV than to what they’re eating. As much as I enjoy seeing Jerry Jones’ playoff ambitions get stomped into the dirt every year, I’d be even happier seeing a lockout. (Thanks, Paul.) Link.
