Prior to the College Football Playoff semifinal Cotton Bowl game between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Clemson Tigers on Saturday night, a bald eagle flew through AT&T Stadium during the national anthem. Everything did not go as planned, however, as the majestic bird landed on a couple of fans before ultimately finding the designated landing spot.

Crazy enough, one of the two fans the actual eagle landed on is a Philadelphia Eagles fan! I mean, what are the chances?

An eagle landing on an Eagles fan at the Dallas Cowboys’ home stadium ... what does it all mean?!
Well, I think it’s obvious. The Eagles are repeating as Super Bowl champions. Really, the signs have been there all along.
Just crossed paths with an eagle. 100% chance the Birds are repeating as Super Bowl winners. pic.twitter.com/UN6p85M0Q7— Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) February 27, 2018
(Alternatively, maybe the Eagles are doomed because the eagle landed on two Notre Dame fans and then the Irish lost to Clemson by a final score of 30 to 3. But shut up!)
