Phillies pole-climber shotgunned 7 beers after epic Game 5 win
“This is not my first rodeo.” That’s what pole-climber Sean Hagan told the Inquirer after his dominant display on Broad Street in which he shotgunned at least seven beers while perched atop a traffic signal.
The Phillies and the city drove him to (not so) new heights:
This man truly embodies everything it means to be a Philadelphia fan. The fact that he was able to scale a wet, greasy pole and crush SEVEN BEERS without missing a beat is not only impressive, but downright inspiring.
No grease can hold a Phillies fan down, not even water-based lube courtesy of an adult streaming website. Moments like this make me think this city deserves an Animal Planet-style nature show to highlight the natural wonders of Philadelphia.
I highly recommend you read the whole Inquirer article on this guy. It has some truly incredible quotes, with this one in particular standing out.
“It couldn’t have happened without the crowd being so f—ing Philly,” he said. “What other city’s first thought when they see a guy on a pole would be to throw him a beer?”
Did he end up needing a police ladder to get down? Yeah, but you would too if you shotgunned seven beers in front of tens of thousands of Phillies fans.
So when you’re watching the game tonight, think of Sean and every other Phillies fan out there. We’re in this together, beers and all.
Just look at this form. Aerial imbibing at its finest.
