Jury Duty sucks. Jury Duty when Jay Wright and the Phillie Phanatic show up also sucks, just a little bit less.
One lucky(?) group of jurors had their jury duty crashed by Wright and the Phanatic today on Juror Appreciation Day – which is definitely real – because the Phanatic automatically cheers people up and Jay Wright hasn’t turned down an appearance since the parade:

I’m sure it was cool, but after the Phanatic throws a bunch of juror forms in the air and Jay Wright talks about the importance of civic duty, they get to leave. You don’t.
