Ban Sideline Ballistics!

How ’bout them Hawgs? They all seem to be OK, thankfully. Not only did the Razorbacks take down their opening week patsy opponent 34-14 yesterday, but Big Red and Sue E. apparently escaped serious injury despite a gun-related incident. According to espn.com, “An Arkansas athletic department employee injured a leg Saturday when a T-shirt gun apparently malfunctioned during the first half of the Razorbacks’ victory over Louisiana-Lafayette.” Ah, a “malfunction.” Was it a rule four violation? A de-gassing goof-up? The world may never know. “A police officer was seen afterward holding the T-shirt gun, which is used to fire shirts into the crowd.” Whatever happened, it seems unlikely that the university will lose their t-shirt gun privileges, even in the wake of a possible ND. Go figure.
