The Flyin' Hawaiian landed at a sporting goods store in Center City today. He's become a fan favorite and they were there up close and personal. Shane Victorino stopped in to shop for his golf charity event and to model the latest Phillies Championship gear.

What do you like?

Red Shane or blue Shane?

"I like the red, the red Phillies. We just beat the Dodgers and they were blue, so you can't wear the blue," Christine Walker of Roxborough said.

At this point, fashion is the farthest thing from his mind.

Victorino and his teammates are focused on the job ahead.

And he doesn't care if it's the Sox or the Rays.

"It don't matter, we're there so it's about going there and playing now and to be honest, I don't care who we play, the fact that we're there, we have a chance to win, as long as we're there," Victorino said.

And they're there thanks in large measure to Victorino's postseason heroics.

It's made him a fan favorite.

Kris Violette got an autographed ball.

"It was so great, I didn't think I'd get that close, I figured it'd be mobbed?I was very happy I came down," Violette said.

The fans love all the Phillies and are hoping those positive vibes carry them to victory next week.
