â€śI thought it would be a good night just to work on things just to see what's our best zone offense, what's our best press â€” we changed our presses up a little bit,â€ť he said. â€śJust a lot of fun. It was a good game with everyone getting to play a lot.â€ť

Lying on its side, the brownish gray bird struggled to pull itself toward the grassy median.Â Turbulence created by passing motorists sprayed fine bits of gravel and dust over its feathers and into its eyes. After reaching the edge of the asphalt, it could go no further.Â
Resting after such an effort, it did not hear the vehicle stop some distance behind it.
Surprised by the hands that suddenly pressed against its wings and heavy body, the bird used its large webbed feet to push against the manâ€™s waist. With its long, sharp bill it nipped at his arms.
