We've welcomed a new Philadelphia Mascot to our city sports team family!
Meet 'Phang' who the Philadelphia Union Soccer Team has introduced as their friendly, punk-rock, "snake" to take the face of their field and their team.
However, lots of Philly Fans are confused by Phang... apparently because he's a snake with arms and legs.
Now I was slightly concerned at first, but quite frankly-- I'm rather glad we don't have mascot that will need to slither along the floors of the field because THAT would be a tad more concerning in my opinion... But then I remember we have the Philly Phanatic...and if we can accept and love him than we can surely take in a confused "snake".
But just to give everyone piece of mind, A snake with arms and legs could be equivalent to a Salamander-- just saying.
Check out Phang's really cool entrance at the Philly zoo as he's the newest addition!
