Instead of landing with the trainer, the eagle landed on Seattle Mariners pitcher James Paxton, who barely flinched when the eagle landed.

A eagle landed on Mariners pitcher James Paxton during the national anthem at a Seattle Mariners game in Minnesota. "I don't know. But it came for me", the left-hander said on Thursday evening after the Twins rallied past the Mariners 4-2. 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.

The eagle then made a second, more successful attempt, as Paxton ducked his head but remained surprisingly calm. No confirmation, but Paxton might have stolen eggs from this eagle. "I was just standing there trying not to panic". "But then as I stood straight up, it fell back onto the ground". After all, Paxton is nicknamed the "Big Maple."

Ex-S.Korean President guilty of abusing power
A South Korean judge said Friday that ex-President Park Geun-hye is guilty of abuse of power and coercion. Choi, who rose to power as an influential confidante of Park, was convicted of corruption in February.

During the National Anthem, Paxton was standing alone in left field at Target Field between warm-up throws.

Maybe the Eagle will give him the good luck he needs to turn around his 11.00 ERA.

There was some good-natured joking after the game and Paxton had a phone full of messages to take care of as video of the event has gone viral.

"The eagle knew I was Canadian, I don't know", he said.

Paxton called the experience interesting and said tongue-in-cheek that he wasn't too surprised that the errant eagle sought out the Canadian on the the field.
