Biography

Being born a bald eagle in the United States makes certain assumptions about your patriotism. It's only buoyed more when you're raised with ideals that were popular in the 1950's. Bradley Jonathan Pullman is the son of a butcher and his wife in the perpetually 50's-retro tiny town of Tiffin, Ohio. It was like the city was stuck in time, with jukeboxes still in diners and a town where everybody knew everyone else and their dirty little secrets. Growing up, Brad was exposed to more McCarthy-era propaganda than anyone should have been, claiming that communists were still out there and willing to take our God-given freedoms away. Everyone had a gun, the wives were still somewhat submissive to their pipe-smoking husbands, and America was the best damn country in the world.

Brad's father wanted him to join the family business - a 'Proud American Tradition' inducted into all the 'Red meat' propaganda, and how America needed meat and to save it from liberal tofu-eating hippies. Of course, wanting to fit in, Brad internalized all of this, and though he had no interest in being a butcher, decided he would be a symbol his father would be proud of. Brad worked out hard and strong, became the 'jock' of high school, and started trying out for sports. Being a sports hero was a dream of his since childhood; much better than the military and being shot at. Being a bald eagle was a help for anything Americana - He was tall, broad shouldered, athletic, handsome - he could have BEEN the bald eagle photographed for any U.S.A. marketing material. His charisma was evident when he was elected three times as high school class president, despite his documented harassment of immigrants and 'third-generations'. He found his own lineage traced back to the Revolutionary War, which only fueled his uber-patriotism even more. Now, if he'd only realize that the only 'True Americans' were the ones who were on the land before the Revolutionary War...

Though he could have excelled at any of the offerings, he chose basketball as his focus, because he found too many players in the pro leauges there were 'not REALLY American' or 'not as American as they should be', and he wanted to re-establish the foothold of the 'Greatest Country in History' in the FBA. And, also, because he was good at everything. Except baseball, which was the obvious choice about being 'America's pasttime'. (Brad doesn't like to talk about his inability to play that sport). While he didn't really stand out as 'The Best (x) type player' in the world on the court, his abilities covered just about every offensive and defensive topic in an above-average manner. Nobody on his team could so easily transfer from a blocking and stealing master to a fast, offensive gunner and back like Brad Pullman. And he was the best performer on his college team, undoubtedly - but the way you'd hear him talk about it, it sounded like he was proudly carrying the team under his own wings. His above average performances around the board, nor his only above average academics, didn't get him into Kent State, but the University of Toledo offered a sports scholarship. Brad initially accepted the offer, but later refused when he discovered the name of the city was brought over by the Spanish. In a truly pigheaded manner, he announced he would only attend an 'American' university, with a name sounded more appropriate for someone who was considered a 'symbol of America'. The least expensive compromise was a partial scholarship from Western Michigan. He accepted, and continued his above-average across the board performance. When the draft came up, Brad's baby blue eyes lit up, as he found a way to infuse more loyalty from his country into the sport. So he put his name into the draft, hoping to once more bring the USA to the forefront of the national sports stage.

And make some serious cash, so he wouldn't have to hear his dad talk about him being a butcher.

Personality: Brad's mentality is very closed minded, aggressively patriotic, and thus somewhat bigoted. He is so right wing you'd think he'd flop over on one side. Beer, Barbecue and Ballersports are his mantra for relaxation. Being a bald eagle, he considers himself a symbol for his country, and has an antipathetic view of people who don't support his 'America First!' viewpoints. However, lately he's calmed down due largely in part to his reindeer agent, Blake Toivonen, and proven that there is ability and a cool head under crisis. His large wingspan reach, height, presence and keen court senses with good offense and defense over-average balance made him a contender for the 2014 draft. If only he'd shut his beak from time to time.
