Pat Listach was not amused by the Phillie Phanatic
On Monday, Nationals third base coach Pat Listach joined a long line of players and coaches made into a foil by the Phillie Phanatic. For Listach, it happened at the wrong time, and Listach spoke with a member of the Phillies coaching staff to make sure it didn't happen again.
The Phillies had just scored five runs in the fifth inning of their home opener to take a 7-4 lead. Listach was already mad about that, and it did not help when the fuzzy, green mascot danced to a Lady Gaga song and snuck up on Listach to pinch his backside.
Listach told the mascot, "You need to get out of here," only it wasn't that family-friendly. The timing irked Listach more than the actual act.
"That was bad timing," Listach said. "We had just given up five runs. This isn't Little League. This isn't high school."
Listach spoke with Phillies hitting coach Milt Thompson, a friend of his, in order to make his feelings known and to prevent further intercation with the mascot.
You can definitely see Listach's point. You also have to admit that's one funny video.
