Grandpa Castellanos interviewed as random Phillies fan in wild moment on FOX 29
FOX 29 reporter Chris O’Connell scored a surprise interview with Nick Castellanos’ grandfather, Leonard, during the lengthy rain delay prior to Game 2 of the NLDS. While the man initially appeared to be a random Phillies fan, the soaked O’Connell soon found out who he was dealing with.
And you know what? Grandpa Castellanos was a natural with the mic in his face:
Lenny C really reminded me of Nick in the way he handled the start of the interview. Answering “no” to the question, “are you from Philly?” without offering any further elaboration is spot on.
I’m sure Leonard has become yet another reason to love the whole family. Nick’s mom Michelle is a low-key menace on Twitter, his son had both his will and forehead forged in iron, and now his grandfather is more casual on the mic than seasoned veteran Chris O’Connell.
You can watch the full interview here on Fox 29. Leonard goes on to tell O’Connell how proud he is of his grandson, which makes for a beautiful Red October love-fest.
Is the tweet that brought this moment to my attention not ideal? That’d actually be a gross understatement. I don’t entirely see the humor in the juxtaposition of the two, but, it’s from New York media.
I will kindly direct them to take care of their own issues and stick to showing love to Leonard Castellanos, as well as any other family members doing something cool at any given moment. At any rate, we’re chilling in Red October, baby.
