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.
