"Today was "School Spirit Day" at Oral Roberts University. Students were encouraged to wear their ORU T-shirts and there was an actual eagle set free inside the chapel service. It evidently made a few laps around above the students' heads, but then, things went wrong. The poor bird must have thought that the glass was the clear blue sky and he went for it. Of course, he hit hard, to the dismay and amusement of the student body."See video in link below:
