Canadian Goose and Health Issue.

I am posting this situation from a FB group. The situation was on the Chicago area.

"You arrive at a high school field which is filled with Canadian geese (sic) droppings as its located near a pond. Due to the health risk of e-coli, Listeria, and salmonella that are carried in the geese (sic) feces do you consider the conditions unplayable or not even think twice?"

My personal opinion is not to play. What say you?

MTD, Sr.

Part of it depends on the definition of "Filled" but I have never cancelled a game for this.

Up to the school, not you.

They are Canada geese. (Common misunderstanding.) They're a major pain a lot of places. We have a local billionaire nut job in NY that wants the assessment on his lakefront home lowered because of them (it's the town's fault for not chasing them away ).

This is academically true, but the second those lineup cards are exchanged...

I feel like I should take all my clothes in and get dry cleaned, especially the shoes after a game at the one field that we call goose **** hell.

Was this field in northwest Indiana? If so, they were talking about this very field.

And it's always 10+ degrees cooler, wind blowing so hard you can't hear, and my first game there, completed the trifecta with steady rain (40 degrees).
