Dude, he’s the mascot of a HOCKEY TEAM – what did you expect to happen?!
Friday night at the United Center the Chicago Blackhawks suffered a tough loss in overtime to the Winnipeg Jets, but for one fan he suffered embarassment during another type of loss. In the concourse of the UC a post-game scuffle occured with a fan and a Blackhawks employee.
This was not a concession stand dispute, or an argument with seat ushers. One attendee apparently had a problem with Tommy Hawk, the avian mascot of the team and it was captured on video. And it did not go well for the fan. Tommy managed a body slam, some punches, and a headlock before disentangling with his attacker.

Police on the scene confirmed the mascot had been initially assaulted, by a male estimated to be 18-20 years old. No one was brought into custody, and that seems understandable. After that kind of blackbird beatdown in front of a crowd it would have been best to disappear as quickly as you can.
I’m impressed the head stayed on

Some may expect he gets 5-for-fighting, but really he needs a 5 game suspension for sheer humiliation.
If this guy ever does resurface and he has thoughts of suing the teaam there is someone he should call immediately.
I'm just going to throw this out there in case there is a lawsuit…. pic.twitter.com/5zBA9yyPwe
