The Phillie Phanatic harasses the Padres broadcasters

I love the Phillie Phanatic. He's my favorite mascot in all sports, bar none. During Tuesday night's Padres-Phillies game in Philadelphia, the Phanatic paid a visit to the Padres broadcast booth as part of their social media Tuesday promotion, polling fans about the best mascot in the league.

After some jabbing by San Diego broadcasters Dick Enberg and Mark Grant, the Phanatic proceeded to unload nearly an entire can of silly string on Grant when he proclaimed his love for Mr. Met (the Phanatic's arch rival). Enberg and Grant finally relented, professing their love for the Phanatic and getting nose kisses in return.
