It‘s probably not an awesome idea to use a T-shirt gun if you‘re not absolutely sure which end the tees are meant to come out. Alas, this was the grievous mistake that led to a mascot injury last week.

Chip — well, technically the person behind the Chip costume — was then carted off the field to seek medical attention.

After the incident, Chip shared a photo on Twitter to let everyone know that he‘s doing okay and appreciates the support.
