Viral Video: Squirrel Steals the Show at Phillies-Cardinals Game

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The St. Louis Cardinals may have come out ahead of the Philadelphia Phillies, but a curious squirrel was the real star of the game.


The squirrel was first spotted scaling the net behind home plate during the second inning at Citizens Bank Park and the rodent soon spurred chaos in the Phillies dugout by jumping down among the players."


Baseball is such a slow-paced and contemplative sport, that it`s not surprising that the antics of a squirrel stole the show at a Phillies-Cardinals game.

Basketball, on the other hand, is such an exciting and fast-paced game that if a squirrel jumped down from the rafters and took a dump on LeBron`s head nobody would pay it much mind.  

Even sports fans who find baseball boring will find this video exciting:
