Bat flies around XL Center at U.S. gymnastics championships (video)

Gymnastics bat

The nation’s best gymnasts had some company at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn., on Friday night.

A bat somehow got into the arena and flew around the rafters (where Hartford Whalers banners still hang). The bat never flew low enough for an extended period of time to interrupt competition.

We’ll have to see if it can be corralled before the National Championships resume again Saturday with the second day of women’s competition.
