Everybody’s got to go to jury duty, even mascots.
The Phillie Phanatic rolled into the courthouse early on Monday for the dreaded task, receiving a pat and wand-down from security on the way in considering it looks like he’s got a bathtub underneath his jersey.

You don’t see mascots whose teams make the playoffs going to jury duty.
