The nephew of the guy in the pic.
This is amazing, but FYI it wasn’t a random wild eagle; it was a trained bird being flown in the stadium. It was used to people.
Because a wild eagle would have absolutely shredded his arm.
But not used to people enough to go where it was trained to.
"It was used to people." I wish folks would actually people more!
Get the fuck outta here with your facts and logic!
That’s what’s communist would say. Nice try.
You say amazing, I say “auspicious.”
That’s my uncle!
What are his thoughts about being eagle perch?
Are you giving your uncle a titty twister in this photo?
How’s his arm?
Tell your uncle the internet thinks he's very cool :)
Your uncle is now President.
Is your uncle's name Sam?
What was he thinking at the moment of the photograph?
Please inform your uncle that he is a right bad-ass!
You’re uncle is a true American. Blessed be upon him thy eagle layeth on his arm.
Any advice to those of us training for a similar fate? I’ve brought a pocketful of field mice to games for years but no luck yet
Which one is you?
Why does this guy look like he knew exactly what to do with a bald eagle on him? I'm impressed
Because he's the chosen one
Because he's Navajo and he's in tune with nature. His name? Bird's Landing-Perch.
Because it’s a stunt.
Isn't he just trying to keep it away from his face?
I like to think he was like "Ok this isn't even a once in a life time chance. This is like, once in a generation. Play it cool. You MEANT for this to happen."
Because he knew exactly what to do!
He must be a falconer. His hand is closed with a little hole in it which is to hold a peace of meat in it and let the bird peck it out which is important to the training of the bird.
yeah when you are holding a raptor like that you have to raise your arm so it want to climb up your arm and not down your arm towards your neck and shoulder. Also that must fucking hurt like hell without a glove
Never look it in the eye?
The kid to the right is clapping out of fear of what would happen if he did not.
That's a healthy distrust of birds and I one fully agree with.
Found the comment I was looking for. Bloody hell, life isn't supposed to be experienced through a lens.
I can relate. I'm in a part of the Midwest that never had Bald Eagles when I was growing up. However, now they are more abound. I went outside one morning and two of them were perched in a tree not far from my house. THEY ARE F*CKING HUGE.
I hope it didn't claw his arm apart. Usually handlers have those thick arm guards, those talons are massive and wicked sharp.
Eagles are serious business. A little joke amongst falconers.
I have an african grey and he once bit my index finger after i gave him a grape. I still have the marks on my finger, it was 6 months ago. I really don’t want to know what a bald eagle would do to your fingers
Look at his eyes. I think he might be in a little bit of pain.
I'm guessing he probably has a massive thick arm guard under his sleeve.
Do you think those talons are sharper than those of chickens?
Do chickens have large Talons?
Yep and insanely strong. Way more than you think.
Designed for food on the go. Grab food and go.
He apparently did not even have a scratch.
I bet his arm hurts like hell
Small price to pay for the blessing of the freedom pigeon
So, is Biden not President anymore? It’s this guy now right? That’s how this works?
The chosen one
There are so many loopholes in our constitution.
I just can't help imagining what Trumps face would have looked like if that eagle had landed on his arm.
Do we crown him or something
I’m pretty sure now we have a King
feathers... He gets the headdress. It's not a political post, he just became the spiritual leader of all 'Merica! Pho Kyeah!
Tuyen Nguyen, who has spent most of his adult life working as a carpenter on Notre Dame's campus, starred in a pre-kickoff viral moment on Saturday, when a bald eagle circling the stadium during the national anthem decided to land with Nguyen instead of its handlers. … "Oh, by the way, I'm a big-time Philadelphia Eagles fan," Nguyen said. "And the eagle landed on me at the Cowboys' stadium. How's that?"
He is the chosen one. He will bring freedom to the Force.
AMERICA - FUCK YEAH!
That guy must be filled with crude oil.
Quick let's all go to Walmart so we can say the pledge of allegiance!
Why is the video of it landing on some other guys back?
Am I the only one seeing a Native American Danny de Vito?
Lol. Frank could never summon a bald eagle.
So… go birds?
We have a new Captain America!
That is a once in a life time thing ..... Pretty cool
JUPITER FAVORS US
Rudy, Rudy, Rudy, Rudy....
Props to the kid clapping and who didn’t reach for his phone but just took in the moment.
He looks low key terrified of the bird. Which is fair, it’s an apex predator.
The middle-aged mustache dude in the upper left is Not impressed.
That kid was silently chanting "Poop!" in his head.
Idk, that guy up a row and to the left seems to be doing both pretty well
He is chosen for it’s his spirit animal
Dude over there lookin like Danny Devito. Murica!
This is how we should pick presidents
Look at all those silly muggles
Or, that eagle was chillin with another eagle and said "yo watch this, I'll prove they fuckin love us"
HEY! That's the mascot for Boston College, not Notre Dame. It would be more amazing if a big headed drunken Irishman landed on his arm.
Look at the kid to the right.
Trying not to get pooped on, wish had longer arms now, that bird must be fricking heavy
I spoke with an eagle handler. They are huge, but not as heavy as they look, between 6 and 14 pounds, with females being larger/heavier. This one looks to be on the smaller side.
Wow the level of chill you would need to have not to freak out and startle the eagle. Nice one.
If thats not American, I don’t know what is.
Hope his arm is okay
If that ain’t Native American, I don’t know what is....
That eagle looks like he took a wrong turn at Albuquerque and is like "Alright NOW where the hell am I?"
Legally that man is now president.
That's one pretty Freedom Chicken.
Looks like the kid's the only one sensing danger.
It’s a trained eagle so eh nothing to worry about beyond like the guy holding it having claw marks or something.
Then you find out that his name is, "Runs with Eagle"
Fuck notre dame
If only the Egales has that kind of support this past weekend
I think it's a trained bird that was there as a side show, and I think this has happened before at other games...or my matrix is glitching again
Coincidence the eagle finds the Indian..??
America is back baby
True American desu ne.
So that gives him instant American citizenship right?
He could have bleed to death if it sunk its claws into his delicious arm.
So, isn't this person now the President?
I think they have a different way to do it there. Political parades are a thing and a lot of money needs be wasted on it first. Then people think they have something to say about it by voting but nah...not really.
The next president has been chosen

That's Big Chief Fisting-Bird. He's well known for this.
Is he Native? Cause the Mighty Eagle just landed on him no sweat! Get his in-laws to see!
That there eagle is an ancestor and knows that man
the bald man is so proud
Moments after this picture was taken, the man was cloaked in red, white, and blue light and emerged with a massive star-spangled top hat and suit, with an apple pie in one hand, a copy of the Constitution in the other, and an AR-15 slung over his shoulder. He then flew off to fight the Commies on eagle's wings.
Well, he's native American so.
Man seeing all those people trying to take pictures hurts my brain. Used to do that all the time until unrealized how many great life moments I was ruining by taking pictures of them instead of actually experiencing them.
that's literally proof this wasn't faked.
Not that you’re a boomer, boomer, but it’s possible to do both
That poor man the bald eagles talons are digging into his arm now that must hurt
That’s a tall order
Don't try this. I spoke with an eagle handler a while ago. Eagles are no joke, even the ones kept in captivity and used to people.
You have been chosen as the new President of the United States. (RE: Trump had a bald eagle on his desk that almost took off his hand.)
He is the chosen one.
"Well, I've caught lunch. Now how do you expect me to get airborne hauling this much?!"
Why do all four cell phones have different pics on the screens?
European mythology of how America works says that man now has citizenship.
The guy in the grey coat to the left, he must’ve called in to work sick… because he’s the only person hiding from all the cameras!!😂🤫😬
Bloodhound is that u?
Receiving your dose of freedom.
I wonder how fucked up his arm is from those talons.
tf! great pic!
That sting on your arm, is the feeling of freedom ! HELL YEAH BROTHER !
Ouch. He’s gonna need a couple bandaids on that.
Anybody else see
He is the chosen American. He will lead us to the future.
I saw two the live around my area eating road kill the other day. Nature is beautiful ❤️
Deluxe version of a carrier pigeon. They are capable of carrying much larger messages.
One guy is getting the hell outta there.
The pain from those claws digging in is very apparent.
Put your fucking phone down and enjoy the moment through your own eyes.
This was awesome. Until the eagle told the guy, "Sir, I am here to talk to you about the extended warranty on your Jeep Grand Cherokee......"
He should become president and his offsprings should be branded as true americans.
Dude on the right with his phone looks like josh duhamel
The bald eagle looks just as surprised as that guy lol
Merica! Fuck ya.. coming again to save motherfuckin day YA! 😃
That is so fucking freedom
I never trust anything that happens in the crowd at a pro sports game.
That means he's the President now, right?
I was at that game - Clemson/ND in Jerry World. The bird made a couple passes and was obviously lost and picked that lucky guy. Crazy - the bird's talons are huuuge.
I went to a baseball and just got this lame championship winning baseball...
Lol, the varying degrees of awe and disbelief on people’s faces in this pic is priceless.
Kool a therapy eagle.
Coming soon to
That's how we should elect new presidents.
So if my understanding of American politics is correct this man should be the next president.
This is from 2018...
He’s the protagonist we’ve all been waiting for.
And so the next Captain America was chosen.
Alternate caption: Dani devito summons the power of america to bless surrounding crowd.
Americans, this is your new president.
I wonder how it tastes
Murrrica fuck yea
He’s legally the U.S. President now
And now he's president.
I went to Georgia Southern. This is something I'm used to seeing. But not landing on a fan.
AMERICA FUCK YEA!
This is how I feel like people think American presidents are elected
What a majestic Disney princess
This is how the president should be chosen
This is probably the most American photo I've seen in a long time.
Obviously he's there to deliver Freedom™
"Look at me, I am Captain America now"
I'm getting new meme format vibes here
This is how the U.S. should decide the Presidency.
at least there's some people without their phones out!
