Despite being grounded on opening day, Lewis the bald eagle is safe and sound

If you're worried about the fate of Lewis the bald eagle, who was scheduled to do a fly over at Busch Stadium on opening day but then mysteriously didn't, don't be. Walter Crawford, executive director of the World Bird Sanctuary where Lewis lives, said it was decided at the last minute to call off the pre-game fly over because there were too many people on the field including a group of airmen from Scott Air Force Base who were holding a giant American flag during the national anthem.
