Your morning adorable: Parakeet plays soccer

October 5, 2010 | 12:03 pm

Color us impressed by Phil, a bright little parakeet with a talent for soccer.

It occurs to us that Phil should really form a team with Momo the English Angora rabbit, Chief the American paint horse, Annie the Shetland lamb and Patch the miniature horse foal. Though their skill levels vary widely, these animals would be sure to delight spectators. (Phil and Momo would have to be sure to steer clear of the larger animals' hooves, though.)

Paul the soccer-prognosticating octopus could predict the outcomes of their games. And we know a bunch of animals -- from elephants to roosters and lions to lobsters -- who could join their ranks.
