The Phillie Phanatic is better than Mr. Met

The Phillie Phanatic is better than Mr. Met

It’s not even close.

Last night, video circulated of the New York Mets mascot giving the middle finger to a fan. You know who wouldn’t do that? The Phillie Phanatic.

The Phanatic is the best mascot in baseball.

Sports Illustrated agrees.

He tops the charts in this Bleacher Report ranking.

Guess who FOX Sports has at No. 1?

He’s the best mascot ever.

He went to jury duty to make the day better for these Philadelphians.

He befriended an Ewok on Star Wars Night.

He welcomes back former Phillies greats with a hug.

He handles babies with great care.

He looks great in a swimsuit.

He has great manners.

Late night hosts attempt to recreate him.

Other late night shows are obsessed with him.

He got into the Pokemon Go craze.

…and he took all these great photos with his fans.

With the video of Mr. Met, today felt like a good day to talk about the best mascot in baseball. The Phillie Phanatic.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.

Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.

It will melt your heart.



If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.  

It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.

Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
