The internet is a powerful thing, and once the South Florida Sun-Sentinel asked its readers to help identify the woman who gave Joakim Noah the finger as the Bulls player exited the court after his ejection during Wednesday’s Chicago Bulls-Miami Heat tilt at AmericanAirlines Arena, the woman has been identified. Her name is Filomena Tobias, and according the Sun-Sentinel report, is “the widow of former CNBC commentator and financial wizard Seth Tobia.” Tobias’ daughter, Victoria Racanati, came forward and conceded that the middle-finger-flipping fan is indeed her mother: “Yes, it’s my mom. She’s embarrassed, but she is being a good sport,” said her daughter on Thursday. “She was having fun just like any other fan. All she has to say is that people need to get a life.” Racanati said she is proud of her mom and that the family are passionate Miami Heat fans and season ticket holders who attend every game. While Tobias is unwilling to comment on her newfound fame on the Internet, her daughter said, “I have to say she still looks really hot.” There you go.
