ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The AT&T Center in San Antonio is a good place to watch a great basketball team, as it’s the home of the San Antonio Spurs. It is also, apparently, a pretty good place to see wild animals. You may recall a few years ago, when a bat flew too close to the action and was swatted from the sky by Manu Ginobili, a maneuver that eventually resulted in Ginobili receiving a rabies shot.
Then there was the playoff game in San Antonio two years ago, when the Portland Trail Blazers entered their locker room to find a large snake in Thomas Robinson‘s locker.
So perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that last night in San Antonio, before the Spurs hosted the Timberwolves, another bat got loose in the arena. This time, however, instead of relying on their All-Star shooting guard to corral the bat, the Spurs mascot, Coyote, took to the floor dressed as Batman, of course, and caught the winged beast in under 90 seconds…
