Tom Burgoyne and the Phillie Phanatic have been best friends forever, so nobody knows the big green guy more intimately. The folks at Uwishunu.com caught up with Burgoyne to talk about his furry pal and their chat revealed some facts about the Phillies mascot that we were not yet aware of despite our moderately large obsession with him.
According to Burgoyne, the Phanatic actually has a chauffeur, a chef, a personal trainer, a tailor, and even a dance instructor. As if getting to attend every baseball game at Citizens Bank Park wasn’t cushy enough. [video below]
Also, the Phanatic probably has really high cholesterol.
“When he’s not sleeping, or entertaining the fans, shooting hot dogs into the crowd, or spilling popcorn, he’s usually eating cheesesteaks from Tony Luke’s,” Burgoyne said of the Phanatic.
