The Philly Fanatic is just crazy.
I'm not going to lie...I'm a big fan of mascots. I find their cheeky hijinks hilarious. My girlfriend will be the first to tell you that I have the maturity of a six year old. I like to think of it as I am easily entertained. I was watching the Mets-Phils game tonight and they showed the Philly Fanatic. He was dancing through the crowd and throwing popcorn all over everybody. If I know anything about the city of Philadelphia and its fans, that can get you shot. I'm all in favor of the standard "I'm going to eat your head" shtick done by every mascot in the history of mankind. When did "I'm going to throw popcorn on you" become a mascot staple? That's just asking for an eleven year old to stick his size 8's in your groin.
