Immediately after posting the “learn a little bit about Ghana” post, I went back to the Wiki page I was copying and pasting from and saw something that has officially brought out my inner Uncle Sam…… Ghana stole our National Bird.
The Ghanian national symbol is the Tawney Eagle. Nothing says ‘Merica more than a GOD DAMN EAGLE. I don’t care if you pick a tiger, or an elephant or a freaking monkey as a national animal, there’s one rule. You do not mess with the bald eagle. I’m officially naming tonights game “THE BATTLE FOR THE BIRD”. You have no idea what you’ve done Ghana. You’re in for a world of pain.
