The Phillie Phanatic will spend all spring in Clearwater for first time ever

The Phillie Phanatic will spend all spring in Clearwater for first time ever

Don't get confused. That was not a pregnancy announcement by Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Dom Brown and the Phillie Phanatic that was posted to Instagram this afternoon. It was a photo from Mexico -- we assume on the team's cruise vacation that fans can go on if they fork over some dough -- illustrating that the Big Green Guy needs to lose some weight.

Not sure if you've heard, but the Phanatic will be spending the entire spring with the team down in Clearwater this spring for the first time ever. Dom thinks this will be a good opportunity for the Phanatic to work off some of that winter weight. Too much butter on his popcorn.

"happy to hear that the Phanatic is going to spring training cause i was with him in Mexico on the Phancation and he needs to lose some weight!"

Those of you making the awesome trip down to Clearwater, Florida this February or March will surely want to keep your eyes peeled for bad drivers when you're getting to and from the ball park.

White House communications director criticized for citing Joe Paterno quote about honor

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- President Donald Trump's new communications director is getting sacked on social media for quoting Joe Paterno while making a point about honor and dignity.

Anthony Scaramucci mentioned the late Penn State football coach's oft-cited line "act like you've been there before" during a CNN interview Thursday about his push to stop leaks to the press.

Penn State fired Paterno in 2011 over his handling of child sex abuse allegations against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. A university-commissioned investigation concluded Paterno and others hushed up the allegations for fear of bad publicity.

Paterno, one of college football's winningest coaches, died of lung cancer in January 2012 at 85. He was never charged with a crime.

When Paterno died, Scaramucci tweeted he'd met the coach twice and considered him an "honorable man."
