It's Opening Day in Minnesota and the Twins are taking on the visiting Seattle Mariners.
There's a ton of pomp and a bit of circumstance as is usual for Opening Day festivities.
There's also James Paxton...a pitcher for the Mariners getting warmed up. So there he is, minding his own business during the National Anthem, when a bald eagle (see...LOTS o' pomp) mistakes him for his handler and attempts to perch on James' shoulder.
The video lays it out but let's discuss one more thing...namely, how friggin calm Paxton is as a BIRD OF MUTHA EFFIN PREY is attacking him!
You freak out of a spider in the backyard, Paxton is being STALKED BY AN EAGLE...and is just standing there all "whatevs"
