Von Miller gets existential about chickens

AP

I get plenty of quote sheets.  I try to skim at least most of them, even though in most cases it’s the same old blah-blah say noting bullcrap.

Then there’s Broncos linebacker Von Miller, and his side business of raising chickens.

At the very bottom of a stack of quotes from six different Broncos coaches and players came Miller’s most recent poultry-related remarks.  Specifically, someone asked him which came first, the chicken or the egg?  (Seriously.)

Said Miller:  “For me, I think it’d have to be the chicken.  You need something to protect the eggs.  You just can’t have eggs there.  I’m sure there are a lot of theories out there of where stuff comes from.  For me, I think it was some form of a chicken or something that had to lay the egg first.  It just depends upon how you look at it.  Is the glass half full or half empty?  For me, it just makes sense for a chicken to come first.”

Hopefully, another member of the media eventually will ask Miller why the chicken crossed the road.  Or whether the chickens have large talons.  Or, perhaps more importantly, if the rooster goes with the hen, who’s having sex with the chicken?
