    I am very excited for that show! I'm hoping it will bring good press for pigeons, not bad.

    Mike is a long time Birmingham roller enthusiast. He is truly a man of many contradictions, but has always loved pigeons.

    That's cool! Never knew that about him. I guess lots of us love animals for therapy!

    He did an interview about his pigeons on NPR and on Larry King. The Larry King interview is on youtube, but it looks like they no longer have the NPR interview available.

    Jimmy Smitts (Movie Star) is also a pigeon fancier. Seen him at the LA National years ago, don't remember what breed or breeds he raises.
