Elephant to predict Super Bowl winner by kicking field goals

Sometimes you get the strangest press releases when you work at a newspaper.

“ …SIX FLAGS DISCOVERY KINGDOM WILL ASK AN AFRICAN ELEPHANT TO PREDICT THE WINNERS OF THE SUPER BOWL BY KICKING FOOTBALLS OVER A SET OF GOAL POSTS. … “

After all the grief Six Flags in Vallejo has taken over the years for its mishandling of elephants and other wild marine and land mammals, it’s hard to believe they would set up a stupid, degrading publicity stunt like this. Completely insensitive.

Hey, maybe if the elephant is any good, the New England Patriots will draft it to be their field goal kicker for the 2008 season. /Gary
