Mattress Mack has a meltdown after Phillies beat Astros in Game 3
Mattress Mack was not having it last night in South Philly. The furniture magnate and betting celebrity is a huge Astros fan, which obviously put a massive target on his back as he entered the jungle that is Citizens Bank Park.
It turned ugly for Mattress Mack when fans let him hear it after the 7-0 Phillies win:
Oh no!! Is the millionaire gonna cry?
My guy was HEATED. Granted, I have no idea what was said to him to make Mattress Mack drop F-bombs like it’s Vietnam all over again. There’s a chance it was wildly out of line, but this is the playoffs.
Like Nick Castellanos said, there’s a different level of intensity in the postseason that can bring your game to new heights. We’ve seen it with his fielding, and we’re damn sure seeing it with Phillies fans trash-talking.
I understand it may have gotten under his skin, but what did he expect? CBP isn’t exactly the men’s grille at the country club at cocktail hour, so that likely threw him off of his game. Plus, betting tens of millions of dollars on a team that isn’t the Fightins definitely isn’t the way to endear yourself to Philly fans.
His team got shit on in the World Series, and so did he. It’s all smiles when the Astros win, but he quickly lost composure when his team lost.
I don’t care if he was getting shit non-stop for nine innings, that’s the price of admission for visiting fans. Sadly, it’s a requirement no amount of money can satisfy, which I’m sure he is not used it.
With all of this said, it’s good to see the old man has some fight in him. If the Phils win again tonight, however, we may see that Mattress Mack’s fight disintegrate faster than the Astros’ chances of winning it all.
