Last year’s Super Bowl made history as the most watched television event of all time. Nearly 120 million people tuned in for the part of the event that had nothing to do with football: the halftime show.

February 6th marks what would have been the 71st birthday of the most famous reggae musician of all time, Bob Marley. Nearly 35 years after his death, he remains an inspiration to millions worldwide.

But sometimes, mother nature provides the best and simplest answer: In this case, eagles.
