I imagine that it's never a good thing to be shot, but that if you had to choose an area of your body to take a bullet, I'm guessing your rear end would probably be the best place to do so. There are no vital organs, and there's plenty of fatty tissue to absorb the blow. So, I guess in that sense, Arizona State running back Deantre Lewis is lucky.
