Photo Gallery: The Phillie Phanatic looking sad and alone
What's the opposite of Christmas in July?
The Phanatic was a bright spot in a tough opening weekend at Citizens Bank Park. But his return to our lives was too short lived. We won't see him until Friday at the earliest. So here are some photos of him looking sad and alone at the ball park over this past weekend. (Getty)
Phanatic above the dugout
Is he sad because the Phillies played very bad this past weekend or because he's all alone in the stands with nobody to dump popcorn on? (USA Today Sports)
Those seats are hot in the sun
Plenty of good seats available. And at least you don't have to listen to any annoying fans spout off all game. (USA Today Sports)
Plenty of room for social distancing
Again, the dude just looks lonely. (USA Today Sports)
Happy feet? or sad feet?
Bryce Harper tried to get things festive on his feet over the weekend but even the furry cleats look sad. (USA Today Sports)
It's hard to argue with a 4-wheeler though
He may be alone inside the ball park but at least he still has a 4-wheeler. Those things can cheer anyone up. (USA Today Sports)
Some Opening Day
Opening Day photos are typically a joyous affair. This just kinda looks like a sad wreath you'd leave at a graveyard. Anyway, let's hope we get the Phanatic back in our lives soon. We need something. (USA Today Sports)
