I had a friend in college who would park his BMW in the most remote part of a parking lot, no matter what. The thinking went that the chances of it getting dinged were lessened by doing so. Rockies OF Ryan Spilborghs might want to start doing the same thing, after his truck got more than a ding.
As organizers prepared for the National Western Stock Show parade through downtown Denver, the Coors Field parking lot served as a staging area for livestock. A few steers didn't, um, steer sharply enough and one broke the taillight on Spilborghs' vehicle.Talk about adding insult to injury! The cow broke his light, and then dropped a deuce as well. The Rockies may still be the kings of Denver after their amazing run to the World Series last year, but apparently nobody passed along the memo to the bovine community. Perhaps the cow was delivering a message. If Spilborghs becomes a vegetarian sometime soon, we'll know why.
"My spot was taken, so I parked in space 19, for my number. When I came out, the light was broken," Spilborghs said. "I checked for a note, but those longhorns left something else behind." [Emphasis added]
So I guess the college friend was right. If you really care about your car, you'll park it far away. Then it's safe from dings, scratches, and cows.
