4:41 am
game, plane and simple. you know, we were on national television. i don't think it displays our game very well. >> reporter: well, monk the hundreds of tweet about the fan behavior, dave who says display from fans in the third period should have plenty ammunition to give national columnist against philly for a couple of decades. so, i don't know how high this ranks up there just because it is fresh in our mind. you still have those two philly fans that i remember most, you have the kid who ran on the field and got taserd by the police and went down in the outfield. all time worst fan favor who we called pukey man, the partly 20 something man from cherry hill a rested for intentionally sticking his finger down his throat and throwing up on an off-duty cop and little girl at a phillies game when he was angry at them. hard to beat that, isn't it. >> one of the lows, maybe not nut low. 4:41. shopping at cvs just got
