Philly's Phanatic Around the Town - The beginning

This post is for my mom.

My mom loves Green, part of the reasoning for her loves could come from two famous celebrites....

Her Kermie


and the Philadelphia Phanatic.

This baseball season, Mom is in luck as the Philadelphia Phillies and Philly's tourisim group have launched a campaign called "Phanatic Around Town" in which 20 statues of the Phantaic, (each 6 feet tall, 100 lbs and custom painted by a local artist) have been scattered across the City of Philadelphia. 

This summer I plan on finding each of the Phanatic statues and taking pictures of them for her.  Who knows maybe I can convince her to go with me on a road trip with me and take her picture with a couple of the statues.  I'm sure she'll squeal with delight standing next to her man.
 
Okay Mom, are you ready for it....
 
Our first Phanatic is resplendit in Burgundy and Gold and is hanging out at the corner of 16th & Arch Streets at LOVE Park.
 





There are hearts in his eyes since he's such a love bug.

 
Even his tail is dusted in gold. 
 
Cute isn't he!  While he isn't Green I don't think my mom will mind.  I have a feeling she's going to love his new shade.
