Who Knew He Was a Phillies Fan?

On Monday night, the Philadelphia Phillies eeked out a win in game four of the MLB NCLS playoffs against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a walk-off two run double in the bottom of the ninth by Phillies short-stop Jimmy Rollins.

If that big hit got you excited, you're in famous company: As you can see in the video above, turns out mobster Henry Hill is a huge fan of the Phightins.

Okay, sure, anyone who knows movies can tell you this video is just a scene from Goodfellas with a well placed audio overdub.  Ray Liotta isn't yelling for Jimmy Rollins; he's yelling for Jimmy Conway (Robert De Niro's character in the movie).

But I don't think it's too far fetched to believe that when the Phillies won that game there were some happy mobsters out there somewhere.  Probably more than a couple.  You been to South Philly?  Lotta Italians down there.

Ay, yo, I'm not suggesting anything, alright.  Next cheesesteak is on me, guys!  Don't worry about it.
