Forget Taylor Swift, photographer sought a bigger star

Taylor Swift's security detail didn't realize a bigger celebrity was at the same Center City hotel today and yelled at a photographer from the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation who wasn't waiting to shoot the singer, who plays the Wachovia Center tonight, but rather the Phillie Phanatic. OK, a cardboard cut-out of him. The flatter, less furry Phanatic is being photographed all over the area as part of the GPTMC's Phanatic Around Town promotion.
