    By Jeff Chew, Peninsula Daily NewsCHIMACUM - The New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears televised playoff game was a blast for a Chimacum man who accidentally shot himself while reacting to a Reggie Bush touchdown for the Saints.

    The bullet blew a hole through the meaty part of the 52-year-old man's left hand and lodged in the side of his neighbor's Nip Lee Road home, a sheriff's office spokesman said.

    The gunshot victim was hospitalized after the incident, and may face charges, Jefferson County Sheriff's Sgt. Mike Springer told our newspaper partner, the Peninsula Daily News.

    "Because of the reckless nature of the accident and the fact that it ended up in the side of a neighbor's house, it's been forwarded to the prosecutor for consideration," said Springer.

    The man was not arrested or formally charged shortly after the 1:30 p.m. incident, Springer said.

    He reported that the man had removed the .45-caliber automatic's magazine, and was cleaning it on his living-room coffee table while watching the game on television.

    "He was watching Reggie Bush score a touchdown," said Springer, reading from the investigator's report.

    The man told Deputy Brian Tracer that "he stood up with excitement."

    That's when the gun went off.

    Passing through his left hand, the bullet flew though a flower pot, a window and a wooden fence before burying itself in the wall of the house next door.

    The man drove himself to the Jefferson Healthcare hospital in Port Townsend and is believed to be recovering, said Springer.

    For a moment I thought you were referring to the rules of football, and I don't remember there being guns the last time I played.

    Darwin always seems to get a few around Superbowl time.

    What would have happened if the other team scored? Blow his TV up?
