Pigs On The Pitch In Longview, TX Damage Soccer Fields
Here's an interesting story out of Longview that caught our attention.
This story has all the makings of a Disney movie, Pigs that love to play soccer...or just mess up soccer fields anyway.
According to A Facebook Post From Longview Parks And Recreation, the upcoming soccer season will have to wait.
While we don't have all of the details, according to the Longview Parks and Recreation Department, some hogs got out of their location and raided the soccer fields at Lear Park and managed to trash the place. They went on to add that they are having to shut down Fields 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and 9 for a few weeks until the start of Greater Longview Soccer Association games in order to get them ready for play.
Despite the bad news, Folks are having fun with this one in the comments.
While it maybe frustrating for the work crews and the players looking for a place to practice and play, folks are having fun with this one in the comments. There were a few folks offering up their "hunting" services to take down the turf monsters but it appears the city hasn't taken anyone up on the offer yet.
The Fields Should Be Back To Normal By The Time The Season Starts
The Fall season for the GLSA begins the first Saturday after Labor Day in September so the fields should be ready in time for action unless the hogs decide to revisit the area for another game then we're just gonna have to consider having pigs play the "beautiful game" for our enjoyment. Who knows, it might be fun!
