VIDEO: Seattle Mariners’ James Paxton Attacked by Bald Eagle
Look, if there’s one thing that will always make me laugh, it’s when animals in patriotic situations go haywire, and no one actually gets hurt! Like, we all had ourselves a good little laugh when president Donald Trump almost got bitten by that eagle during that Time Magazine shoot, and cowered in fear, but we got a much better display of how to deal with a wild eagle when Seattle Mariners player James Paxton was pounced on by a bald eagle who was there to be ceremonial but ended up being cere-mean-ial! Get it? Because he’s mean.
It was a huge eagle-like misunderstanding, as the bird was supposed to land on the mound, and instead landed on baseball player James Paxton’s shoulder. Paxton was absolutely calm during the whole affair, which I can promise is not how I would react if an Eagle landed on my shoulder — which is why I would be eagle food, and why Paxton is a world-class Major League Baseball player. You clearly have to be prepared for anything.
