Mike "Lionel" Rodia's great talent is getting into places where he shouldn't be -- such as in the Phillies' clubhouse after they won the Series, where he kissed Jamie Moyer on the cheek, head-butted Matt Stairs and poured a bottle of champagne over the head of Ryan Howard.

On ESPN.com today (and in the magazine out tomorrow), Rick Reilly tells the previously untold tale of this guy from Delaware County, who had managed to get into World Series Game 5 for free and slipped onto the field behind Bud Selig.

Rodia tells me about his first big "sneak-in." I'll have that in tomorrow's INQlings column.
