UPDATE: Via the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Matt Gelb, here’s the answer: “Shane Victorino said he was blowing a kiss to a Nationals fan sitting behind the Phillies on-deck circle who heckled him all night.”
In the ninth inning Sunday night, the Phillies scored six runs, helped in part by Shane Victorino’s run-scoring triple.
And after Victorino got to third base, as the video shows, he blew a kiss to someone, and then pointed in the same direction his blown kiss had traveled.
Who was on the receiving end of this bit of wind-swept affection? Opinions varied.
@BussRuckley: “I need to know. Who did Shane Victorino just blow a kiss to.”
@parker_smith7: “Victorino blew a kiss to the dugout :)”
@ljb835: “Did Victorino just blow the pitcher a kiss after his triple #swag.”
@TedSexy45: “Victorino def jus blew a kiss to a chick in the stands after hitting a triple . #boss.”
@stcahall: “Victorino blows a kiss to harper after ribby triple! Phils still have swagger!”
@PeteyThePirate: “ Victorino definitely just blew a kiss to make fun of Bryce”
Anyone have any additional theories? Or, you know, proof?
