Squirrel: 1, Arsenal and Villarreal: 0
One particularly sporty London squirrel made his way all the way to the Champions League soccer semi-finals first leg game between Arsenal and Villarreal. According to The Courier-Mail News, a grey-squirrel jumped out of the stands and hopped about the field for 15 minutes (avoiding players’ attempts to tackle him). The critter then leaped, unfettered, into his crowd of cheering fans.
This cool squirrel’s drunken frat-boy antics won him a spot on today’s BBC News photo slideshow (see number 3). If you look closely, you’ll notice that the grey squirrel is holding a banner that reads: “Eff you, Lord Inglewood!”.
