It may not have been caught on film, but Calgary Hitmen mascot Farley the Fox is licking his wounds after his own scuffle with an opposing coach.
Farley was celebrating after the Hitmen eliminated the Rebels in Game 5 at the Saddledome Thursday night when he fell off a ledge above the Rebels’ tunnel and onto head coach Brent Sutter.
“He fell right in front of me and then went into my feet and my legs and pushed me back,” said the former Flames bench boss. “My first reaction was he was trying to jump on me.
“It happened so quickly. Your first reaction is to defend. I didn’t know if he was going to jump on me or what he was going to do. So I took a step in and booted him.
“Then, I realized what I was booting. I said ‘Geez, it’s Farley.’ So I ripped his head off to make sure he was OK and so he could hear me to tell him, ‘You gotta get out of here.’ ”
