Only In Corvallis
Where else is the big news of the day the theft of a homosexual ram?
Beavers [football] player Ben Michael Siegert was apparently caught driving the getaway vehicle that whisked a ram away from the university's Sheep Center, according to police.They have a Sheep Center at OSU? I guess you learn something new every day.
Contacted Tuesday afternoon, Siegert said he recalled being pulled over, but denied any involvement with the ram.
"I don't know anything about that," he said. "I'm from a city. I don't know anything about sheep."
The ram lives at the research facility on 35th Street near Campus Way and is part of a study on homosexuality in sheep, said Sheep Center manager Tom Nichols.
Sadly, when I think of sheep, I don't think of the ones we used to have when I was little (yes, I used to have sheep), but I think of the mind-scarring scenes in this Woody Allen classic.
