    Saw the video clip and to be honest, he was in a tough situation because they were stacked together coming in and there was nowhere for him to go because he had another guy right on top of him. No place for him to maneuver without taking out the guy on top. That's what it looked like to me.

    It is not very obvious, but you can see the video at the link in the opening post. Agree that his options were limited. He had someone directly below him.

    I'm sure he'll get his fair share of teasing on this even given the fact that he was stacked. I'm guessing he owes at least a round of drinks or something similar for "payment"

    Saw this in my local paper because the Twins were playing in Texas. That's unforunate for him although I thought it was funny how they ended the article in our paper, basically saying "after all that, he unstrapped his parachute and then climbed the ladder down." It was a pretty bad ending to an article like this.

    Don't know why the article says Army Ranger. That individual is a member of the Golden Knights, not the Ranger Regiment.
