Manu Ginobili’s Contract Was Stolen By A Bird

manu_ginobili_spurs_2013SAN ANTONIO — When the San Antonio Spurs sent an intern to Argentina in July to ferry a new contract to guard Manu Ginobili, it seemed a routine trip.

Hours before the Spurs’ intern was to fly home from Buenos Aires, team officials said that he was strafed by a bird in a park. As he tidied up at a fountain, his backpack disappeared. Inside were Ginobili’s signed contract, along with the intern’s passport, cellphone and laptop.

Luckily, an assistant traveling to Buenos Aires soon after brought a fresh contract and returned it to Texas without incident.
