Even through my recent deportation and subsequent rebuilding of the Phan empire, I haven’t ceased the search for the Phillie Phanatic’s missing phather.  I’ve found a few clues here and there since my last post about the search.

I found this picture of former Phillie and loudmouth Fox commentator, Tim McCarver, introducing the Phanatic to everyone on Captain Noah’s show.  Could McCarver be the deadbeat dad?  The resemblance between the two is striking…



I was all set to haphazardly name McCarver as the Phanatic’s phather and then I was sent this via Twitter:

snuffyI have to admit that I wasn’t thinking about a non-human/non-Phanatic phather.  There are definite similarities between the Phanatic and Mr. Snuffleupagus.  I hadn’t really believed it, however, until I read this major bombshell today from The Good Phight.  Please, go ahead and read it.  I’ll wait here.

I know right?!?  A half-Snuffleupagus in Philly around the same time as the Phanatic.  This is no coincidence.  Mr. Zookeeni has to be some sort of relation to the Phanatic.  Phather, cousin, or dare I say, illegitimate son?  There’s some more digging to be done, but now I’m convinced that the Phanatic’s phather is not human, but rather some other species (phanatic or snuffleupagus).  We are getting closer, however, to discovering the true identity of the Phanatic’s phather.
