Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles may be one of the greatest centers in NFL history and has built up a legacy in that city for many reasons. In tonight’s MLB NLCS game he managed to add another part to his career… hype man!
After the fifth inning of Game 3 in the NLCS between the Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres on Friday night, the Eagles’ legendary center appeared on the field with the Phanatic. They were pumping up the jam-packed Citizens Bank Park crowd and chugging a beer.
Twitter has taken notice and all the buzz and praise for the two brought excitement. Mark Hayes, a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, tweeted that he knew Kelce was coming to the game. However, he didn’t know that he would be chugging beers with the Phanatic!
The Phillies, playing their first NLCS home game since 2010, entered the sixth inning with a 3-2 lead. Will see if the “Fightin Phils” enter the World Series.
