What's up with Minnesota mascots causing trouble? The latest oopsie happened Thursday night when Timberwolves mascot "Crunch" injured Karl-Anthony Towns' dad.

According to Jon Krawczynski, Crunch was sledding down the Target Center stairs – a normal routine – when he "blasted" Karl-Anthony Towns Sr., resulting in a knee injury that will require an MRI.

Video of the hit is below, although it's really hard to see Towns' dad in a green shirt near the bottom right of the stairs. It looks like Crunch hits a chair that ends up hitting Towns Sr.
