Midfielder Joe Allen of Liverpool has become the face of the cover of Chicken and Egg magazine thanks to his hobby… raising chickens.
Allen did have a strange hobby in the context of sports stars often raising dogs, cats or horses. But talking about the superhuman pets of sports people,the Allen’s chicken flock is still easy to imagine.
The story of players on magazine covers is not strange. But on the cover of “Chicken and Eggs” magazine like Joe Allen, there’sno precedent. No sports star has a hobby of raising chickens like Allen. No one was given a birthday present by his wife like Allen. The Liverpool star and wife are currently together caring for chickens up to 16 children.
The stars in the Liverpool payroll know how to avoid collisions in choosing pets. The striker is currently on loan to Liverpool for Milan, Mario Balotelli is “precious as a pig”. The shot of Milan’s quarter finals in the pig quarter is so long that he competes away from home for a long time and misses his four-legged friend. He transferred the competition environment to find ways to let love stick.
Raising chickens like Allen or pigs like Balotelli is a bit unsanitary, but still “healed” bored. Pigs and chickens don’t threaten anyone. Two former famous boxers Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather have a much more dangerous and dangerous hobby: raising… tigers. Last Christmas,Mayweather showed off the best gift he had received as a “Three Man”. Tyson once owned three Bengal white tigers.
American football star, Louis Delmas used to raise a crocodile nearly 2m long. But in the end, Delmas could not pursue this creepy hobby to the end. Partly because his crocodile grew bigger and bigger, beyond his grasp. On the other hand, the Delmas teammates do not dare to make roommates as long as he plays with crocodiles. Even if Delmas promises to lead”you are almost 2m up to the play room”, the thought of “this friend “‘s deadly teeth is enough to shudder.
American basketball handler Gilbert Arenas doesn’t like crocodiles like Delmas, but he loves to feed… sharks. Stephen Ireland midfielder also tried to follow Arenas when he built a shark tank in his kitchen. Only that Ireland’s fiancée Jesscia has yet to give him the chance to buy sharks for release.
The list of super cool pets of sports people can include NBA star camel, Carmelo Anthony, American football player, Colin Kaepernick or former MLB baseball goat, Jose Canseco… In November 2013, Cansco and Leila Knight were questioned by the police for carrying 2 goats close to their vehicles.
