Out of all the behavioral addictions known to man, we may have found the strangest of them all, and it only seems appropriate that it belongs to one of the strangest men in football — QPR manager Harry Redknapp.
Redknapp, you see, is addicted to bird-feeding.
According to The Daily Mail, Redknapp spends around £2,000 (north of $3,300) a year on feeding the birds that frequent his home’s garden. Aside from the financial commitment he makes to his winged friends, Redknapp also sacrifices quite a bit of sleep.
The QPR boss says he is often up at 5 a.m. to feed the birds before embarking on his 2-hour commute from his home in Dorset to QPR’s training complex outside of London:
"I’m a compulsive bird feeder. You’ll see me out in the dead of winter at 5am, filling up our feeders and tables."
"We have about 30 and I can easily spend 80 quid on bird food a fortnight in the pet shop. I won’t leave for work until I’ve fed them - I hate to think of them going hungry. Bit mad, innit?"
He’s a weird bird, that ‘Arry. Perhaps he was one in a former life?
