NY Senator Challenges Phillie Phanatic to MMA Bout

Don't mess with the Phanatic, Senator from New York.

Some Senator from New York was trying to say nice things about the New York Mets the other day on the floor of the state chamber, but as most baseball fans know, this is quite a challenging endeavor. The gist of his speech: the Mets have existed a while. Kudos!

The fun part is when he challenges the Phillie Phanatic to a MMA-style duel on the senate floor. Come on, dude. You don’t know the powers of the Galapagan Uppercut. Or maybe he’s never seen the lethal downward-smashing-Mets-helmet maneuver.
