Bald eagle forgets handler and lands on Mariners pitcher James Paxton instead


America’s national bird had only one job during the pre-game ceremony, but decided to go completely rogue. 

The bald eagle, named Challenger (of course), was suppose to fly through the sky during the national anthem and land on the pitcher’s mound on Thursday. However, it had a completely different idea. 

Instead, it landed directly onto Seattle Mariners pitcher James Paxton. Maybe it heard “pitcher” instead of “pitcher’s mound.” It would’ve freaked out anyone, but surprisingly Paxton played it cool like it wasn’t even a big freaking deal to have this huge bird basically attack you.
