When Animals Attack

benny.jpgThe Bulls don't like James Posey dating back to his days as a member of the Miami Heat.  So Bennie the Bull decided to take vigilante justice into his own hands.  Hilarity ensues. 

 Marc Spears reports on the shooting:

During the fourth quarter of the Celtics' 106-92 win over the Bulls at the United Center, the Chicago mascot shot T-shirts out of a T-shirt gun that hit them in the back. The incident happened when Garnett and Posey were walking to the bench during a timeout with 2:49 remaining. Garnett and Posey gave Bennie the Bull a glare, and, said Garnett, "We exchanged words."

Steve Bulpett sheds some light on Posey's reaction:

Posey, not a favorite in Chicago dating back to when he was a member of the Miami Heat, cringed in mock fear.

"I don’t know - I feel threatened," Posey said. "I don’t feel safe. They really have tough love here, but it was definitely an inside job. They made the mascot do it. I got hit in the back walking away. That spot on my back is sore. I might have to get treatment on it."

I wonder if it is the same Bulls mascot that got arrested a couple years ago.  

Yup, it must be tough to be a Bulls fan this year.
