Eagle lands on Mariners pitcher during anthem

Eagle lands on Mariners pitcher during anthem”

During the National Anthem of Thursday's Mariners, Twins game, a bald eagle landed on the shoulder of Mariners pitcher James Paxton.

The Canadian lefty was standing with his hat off and hand over his heart in the outfield at Target Field prior to the Mariners' game against the Minnesota Twins, when the eagle looped toward him and tried to land on his shoulder, missing and dropping to the grass. But the eagle's talons appeared to tear a chunk out of Paxton's jersey. "It was coming right for me and I was like, 'All right, the guy is over there". The Vikings lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC championship game this winter, of course, before the Eagles came to Minneapolis two weeks later to win their first Super Bowl.

Paxton seemed to stay calm, and the eagle eventually landed on the ground and was picked up by its handler. No confirmation, but Paxton might have stolen eggs from this eagle.

It's a shame about the late notice and the weight difference, but this is still one hell of a fight. "I can't wait. Penn, Conor McGregor and Georges St-Pierre as the only fighters to hold world title in multiple weight classes.

"As I stood up he kind of fell off my back a bit and was kind of clawing to get back on my shoulder", he said.

"I was just standing there, trying not to panic", he said.

The entire experience was witnessed by Paxton's teammates, who were lined up on the third base line for opening day introductions watching everything unfold.

In the end, the eagle landing did not give Paxton any luck. This eagle saw the 6-foot-4 "Big Maple" and thought good enough.

"I guess the eagle knew I was Canadian". "It came for me".
