Watch An Eagle Soar Above A Club America Game Wearing a GoPro

You know what's cool? A drone getting footage from high above and changing the vantage point. You know what's badass? An eagle soaring over a soccer game with a GoPro attached to it.

MLS Insider :: New York Red Bulls’ Bradley Wright-Phillips

~~  Some incredible stuff from the perspective of the son of a legend.... And from a player who currently lines up alongside a legend....
