Benny the Bull is one of the most recognizable mascots in American sports. He made his first appearance for the Chicago Bulls in 1969 and since then has been a source of entertainment not only inside Chicago Stadium and the United Center but all over the city– making roughly 250 appearances per year entertaining fans and children throughout the city.
In some cases Benny takes it a step further and chooses to mingle with rappers, opposing players, and officials. It’s in these instances where the self proclaimed lover of Simon Says and magic tricks is at his very best.
