The Phanatic Is America’s Favorite Mascot

Plus: Video of his mad pitching skills

The Phillie Phanatic has been named America’s Favorite Sports Mascot. Yay! [Forbes] This news comes after yesterday’s celebration for the Phanatic’s birthday. He rounded up other notable mascots for a quick baseball game before the Phils took on the Marlins.  Showcasing his (award-winning) enthusiasm for the sport, the Phanatic pitched—and wound up clocking his mother, Phoebe, right in the face. [7oo Level] It’s that kind of commitment that brings home the titles.
