Chip, the University of Colorado Buffaloes’ mascot, nearly lost his Rocky Mountain oysters on Saturday.

He and the poor person wearing his costume accidentally blasted himself in the groin with a T-shirt cannon during the Buffs’ football game against the University of New Hampshire. He went down hard.

Oh, give me a home where the Buffalo groans...

Chip got carted off Folsom Field in Boulder and Twitter buzzed about his misfortune:

The misfire didn’t keep him away from the sideline for long, however.

He eventually returned to see the Buffaloes complete their 45-14 victory over New Hampshire, The Denver Post reported.

“I’m good guys!” Chip wrote on Twitter.

The Buffs remain unbeaten. Can’t say the same for Chip.

When Colorado hosts UCLA on Friday, Sept. 28, we recommend that he stay away from the souvenir-blasting weaponry.
