Phillies Make Sure We Don’t Insult the Phillie Phanatic

The Phillie Phanatic has been part of the experience at Phillies home games since 1978, making him a part of the team for nearly 40 years. Fans visiting Veterans Stadium and later Citizens Bank Park are able to enjoy his many antics, from dancing on the dugout to spraying Silly String on announcers.

However, not everyone is enthralled with the Phanatic. 97.5 The Fanatic, one of the local sports radio stations, posted a poll on Twitter asking if they were tired of the mascot:

Are you sick of the Phillie Phanatic?

The responses were less than hospitable.
