The Flyers’ new mascot Gritty has garnered 99% of the NHL mascot headlines this season and become an internet darling, but the Blackhawks’ mascot ‘Tommy Hawk’ is the last one you should mess with.
During a recent game at the United Center, Tommy was patrolling the concourse looking to spread some team spirit, when he was reportedly sneak attacked by a jerk fan and put in a headlock. Instead of taking the beating, Tommy opted to body slam the d-bag before showing him the exits.
Gritty may be the most popular mascot, but Tommy is easily the grittiest. At 10-19-6 and in last place in the Western Conference, maybe they should put Tommy out for a shift and let him rough somebody up.
Watch him punk this unruly fan.
