There was a special celebration at Citizen’s Bank Park yesterday, marking the 34th birthday for the best mascot in all of sports — the Phillie Phanatic. There were mascots from other teams present, a pregame show and celebration of sorts, capped by an on-field cake. Given all of his on-the-field shenanigans, I’m surprised none of other mascots slammed him with a cream pie in the face. I’ll tell ya one thing — the pregame festivities generated alot more energy than the Phillies depleted lineup.
Well worth leaving early to beat the traffic ….
