When Christopher McDonald signed on to play Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore back in 1996, he was probably unaware that he’d be leaving his former life behind. He is one of those rare castings that had the ability to play his character better than he could ever play himself. Christopher McDonald is more Shooter McGavin that Christopher McDonald is Christopher McDonald. It makes so little sense it actually makes perfect sense.
The only thing that makes more sense is McGavin pairing up with the uncivilized clan known as Bills Mafia. They go together like Happy’s grandmother and a warm glass of milk. Like Chubbs Peterson and a pair of mittens. Like Virginia Venit and my Spank Bank.
McGavin was spotted partying with Bills Mafia in the parking lot of Buffalo’s New Era Field before the Bills’ week one victory over the Jets. It’s remains unclear if Big Foot was waiting in said parking lot to kick his ass, but judging by Shooter’s shit-eating grin, Mr. Larson probably gave him a pass.
P.S. Never forget McDonald signing the greatest autograph of all-time at ComicCon a couple years ago.
P.P.S. I choose to believe this was Shooter getting a beamer in the women’s bathroom during the game Sunday.
I guess this gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘CHOKE ON IT BABAYYYY!”

Shooter joining the Bills Mafia army makes me happier than it should.
