Bald Eagle Lands on Football Fan in Texas

Ever go to a football game expecting a bald eagle to land on you? Tuyen Nguyen had this strange thing happen near the end of 2018 in Texas.

An American bald eagle flying around a Texas stadium as part of a national anthem stunt must have needed a breather because he suddenly landed on the shoulder of a stunned fan who said he was “scared crapless.”

The semifinal game in Arlington between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Clemson Tigers on Saturday was about to begin when Clark the eagle flew around the stadium during the singing of the anthem. The bird was supposed to land near his handler but instead found another human perch. That football fan cowered as others in the audience snapped photos

Notre Dame fan Tuyen Nguyen, who lives in South Bend, Indiana, then extended his arm for a second perch option and Clark tried it out.

“I thought the bird had to be very tired. So I put my hand out to see what happens. And it landed on me. It was very interesting. I was very excited. It was amazing, I couldn’t even believe it,” he told Sports Illustrated.

Perhaps the point to remember: Great things can happen from small gestures.
