Watch Savannah Guthrie get Spooked by the Phillie Phanatic

After 40 years of whooping it up for his beloved Philadelphia Phillies, the Phillie Phanatic is hanging ’em up at the end of the year, to the dismay of the city’s passionate fans.

But with the Today Show in town for the DNC, the Phanatic couldn’t resist a farewell tour stop by the set —which totally freaked out Savannah Guthrie.

The Phanatic’s drop by may not have been totally innocent. It’s possible his allegiance lies with Good Morning America, which named him the best mascot in baseball last year.

The Phanatic being a GMA fan totally makes sense, given his affinty to losing franchises. (Sorry, Phantic. This Mets fan couldn’t resist.)
