I have extremely little interest in baseball. I don't like playing it. I don't like watching it. I don't like other people watching it (cuz I'm controlling like that). The whole sport is really just a hyped-up snooze fest...BUT!!! There is one exciting gem to the sport that sparkles a furry green: The Philly Phanatic! He's 85% anteater, 15% exotic bird, and 100% fun!
My father took me to a Phillies game when I was a kid. After all these years, the only memory I've retained from the event is of the Philly Phanatic. Who was pitching that game? I don't know...but I can tell you that the Phanatic is horrible at driving golf carts. Who won the game? I have no clue...but I know that the Phanatic likes to sneak up behind people and lick them with his long, roll-out tongue.
Why don't we just we just eliminate all of the baseball players and allow the mascots to compete? I'd watch that...and the memories would probably last longer.
