    Default Pitcher becomes first to throw no-hitter after being landed-on by Eagle

    'Murica


    First, he was 'blessed' by this Crowned Eagle




    Then, in his native Canada, he throws a no-no.



    Paxton is the first AL pitcher to have a 16-strikeout game and a no-hitter in the same season since Nolan Ryan with the Rangers in 1991. Ryan did that in the same game against Toronto, while Paxton pulled it off in back-to-back outings.
    “… the greatest detractor from high performance is fear: fear that you are not prepared, fear that you are in over your head, fear that you are not worthy, and ultimately, fear of failure. If you can eliminate that fear—not through arrogance or just wishing difficulties away, but through hard work and preparation—you will put yourself in an incredibly powerful position to take on the challenges you face" - Pete Carroll.

    I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you f*ck with me, I’ll kill you all. ---- Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    I put the original "Way back When", but it is still good:

    I have lost my mind. If found, please give it a snack and return it?
