Nothing could keep the Phillies beloved Phanatic off the field during the Eagles 24-19 win over the Giants

Baseball season is still several months away, but that doesn’t mean the Phillie Phanatic is hibernating. The Phillies mascot took to the field during Thursday Night Football for a pick-up game between the NFL mascots and the mascots of Philadelphia.

Paired up with Swoop, Franklin, and various collegiate mascots, the Phanatic played primarily at center. In fact, I think he outperformed Jason Kelce.

With the Eagles blatantly annoying mouthpiece Dave Spadaro “calling” the game, the Phanatic and his fellow Philadelphia mascots lost to the NFL mascots 7-0 on a deep touchdown to the Jaguars mascot.

The Phanatic even got a late hit in on the Patriots mascot, probably as retribution for the Super Bowl.

Watch the game here, but I’d recommend muting it so you don’t have to listen to Spadaro cause 60,000 ears bleed.

Meanwhile Bob Costas wore his Judge Doom costume on the sideline, but did not get a chance to take the field.
