    Default Bitchy the Hawk

    Did anyone notice the Epic Fail prior to the last match.

    I guess Bitchy the Hawk was suppose to fly from the tunnel to the perch that was setup on the pitch. Instead, he decided to fly up to the second deck and chill out on the stairs. The trainer had to run up and recover him.

    Funny stuff.

    was laughing to myself / telling people this story yesterday. So funny.

    Always kind of wondered about Bitchy being tied down up on her perch/house atop BMO and never until this match actually watched the whole intro 'show' with her flying out of the player tunnel. Hilarious that she made a run for it. Probably just wanted some popcorn or something from the ppl up there. Any pics surfaced from the second deck people near the landing spot?

    Wonder if that's the end of the intro show for now haha

    That thing is sooooooooooo lame. Like, I like the bird and all but have him fly around at half time or something.

    Don't make him out to be a mascot and a tough bird that represents the team.

    The game before when he fell off the perch during the opening, I thought he'd hung himself for a minute ...

    They might be better off to simply keep him on the roof, before this turns into some kind of epic fail.

    Benfica have a hawk. Coincidentally, he is raised and trained in Ontario.
    Before a match, they have him do a half lap of the stadium.

    I think they are trying to copy that.

    Bitchy's real job is keeping the seagulls away...

    Remember year one? You didn't dare leave your beer uncovered or not wear a hat to a night game - at dusk, you just listened to the shit hit the east stands...

    Just let the girl sit atop BMO, keep the vermin of the skies away, and enjoy the match...

    I love Bitchy - but just let her do her thing...

    Pretty sure the team picked him because we wanted them to, back in year one. I forget the bitchy lore, but it's fan based, not just the team.

    That's not what i was talking about.
    I was talking about having the hawk flying in the stadium at the start of the match.

    As for the reason why the hawk is there, wasn't that a team decision in year 1 to control the seaguls from invading the BMO airspace?
    The team then decided to name it and the supporters voted for Bitchy.

    I agree with Carts - Just let her do her job - don't try and make it more than that.

    And voted for bitchy because it's the actual name of the hawk.

    And I noticed that at the FC Dallas match (the one where Bitchy appeared to have attempted to hang herself ... during the opening ceremony) the gulls were noticeably worse than usual, before she made her late first-half return to her normal seat.

    She didn't attempt to hang herself! The camera man got too close to the chunk of meat she gets as a reward and she went after it.

    I'd rather have Bitchy than have Carlton the dancing bear or the Raptor wandering around the stadium. But that's coming from a 29-year old. The 11-year old me though BJ Birdy was the fucking man.

    Plus Bitchy has already been immortalized on the TFC Academy crest:

    Benfica have a eagle. I really don't understand why tfc are trying this, i wouldn't mind but it was so blatantly obvious that bitchy was never fully well trained to do this right now, so hoping they stop this before one day bitchy ends up flying out of the stadium next time.

    I stand corrected - but it was trained in Ontario (At least it was back in 2010) - That I know for a fact!

    I honestly thought he was going to take off that day. It was pretty fucking funny.
