Colorado’s costumed mascot accidentally shot self in the groin with a T-shirt gun

Colorado’s costumed mascot, Chip the Buffalo, was carted off during the Buffaloes’ win over New Hampshire on Saturday with an undisclosed injury.

At the time, the incident was being described as a “T-shirt gun malfunction,” which left a lot of room for interpretation.

On Wednesday, video circulated of what exactly happened to Chip, and oh man, it really was the most unfortunate T-shirt gun malfunction we’ve seen. Chip accidentally shot himself in the groin with a T-shirt gun from point-blank range.

That understandably resulted in the cart off the field. It all makes sense now.

Chip — or someone in the Chip costume — would return to the game, so Colorado still celebrated its win with the costumed mascot.

He’ll be back for Colorado’s game against UCLA after the bye week.
