The San Diego Chicken

As a kid, I never was able to fully comprehend the San Diego Chicken.

I mean, why a chicken?

During the game last night the announcers kept saying things like:  "The fryers take the lead", "The fryers score", etc.

A quick look at the dictionary reveled:

fryer (also frier) noun

2. a small young chicken suitable for frying.

That's when it hit me:  a chicken makes perfect sense.
