After clinching the NL East this weekend, Phillies fans had a lot to cheer about but why, why in the name of Mr. Met, would the Phillie Phanatic get up on the dugout and do the monkey with half-a-dozen people in chimpanzee costumes?
The bizarre scene took place last night during a game at Citizens Bank Park against the St. Louis Cardinals when the furry green mascot was joined over the Philles' dugout by the phoney primates.
Not being a big fan of mascots-- I did find this kind of funny. You really can't go wrong with monkeys on TV anytime.
The big-headed apes didn't push any environmental issues like the Stanford Tree, a monkey movie and they aren't as scary--or peculiar-- as the 2012 London Olympic mascots, Wenlock and Mandeville. Are those things remote controls or what?
Last night's dance line didn't do anything to help the Phillies though. They were blanked by the Cards, 5-0.
The New York Mets mascot can only pine for the day when he is joined in a conga line within his lonely stadium.
Maybe Mr. Met can do the Dougie with the packs of wild dogs which reportedly roam outside CitiField.
