MSG Network broadcaster Howie Rose called the Philly Phanatic an "overrated, washed up hack" during the first intermission of Monday's New York Islanders game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Rose's comments were prompted when cameras panned to Mr. Met, the New York Mets mascot, walking the aisles of Nassau Coliseum greeting young fans. Rose referenced a poll from last season that Mr. Met as as America's favorite mascot, beating the Philly Phanatic, who came in at No. 2.
The Flyers helped the Phanatic get some revenge for Rose's comments, however, as they pounded the Islanders 7-0.
