There are millions of people across the country who have demonstrated against Chick-fil-A for its widely-publicized stance on gay marriage. Of course, there are millions more on the other side of the argument who have lined up around the block to support the fast-food chicken chain’s political and religious beliefs.
Then, of course, there’s Les Miles, the coach of the LSU Tigers, otherwise known as the Mad Hatter.
Mr. Miles’ Tigers are preparing to face Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, and thus all pre-game functions and festivities are catered by the bowl’s main endorser.
Miles, however, has refused Chick-fil-A in all of its sandwich, biscuit, nugget and even salad forms.
But don’t call the man right-wing, left-wing, conservative, liberal or anything else.
Just call him loyal.
Miles signed an endorsement deal with Raising Cane’s, a chicken shop that opened its first store in Baton Rouge in 1996 and has since expanded to 17 states across the country.
As a result, Miles has not touched any Chick-fil-A despite its near-ubiquitous presence at the bowl.
As the Mad Hatter himself put it: “I have a chicken issue.”
You just can’t make this stuff up.
