If you follow Brandon Phillips on Twitter, you know he loves to pose for pictures with fans. The following is proof that he also likes to pose for pictures with opposing fans, even when he's not invited.

Check the photobomb, captured before Friday's game in Chicago against the Cubs:

That's Molly Schaus, the goalie of the Team USA women's hockey team, who was probably hoping for Wrigley Field's famous Friendly Confines in the background of her pic, not a leaping baseball player. Well played, Mr. Phillips.

That proved to be the highlight of his day, though. Phillips tweaked his back in his first at-bat Friday, eventually pulling himself out of the game after the top of the third inning. There's no reason to believe one is connected to the other — it's not like Brandon Phillips never jumps. 

Jon Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer says Phillips' exit was for "precautionary reasons." That's good news for the Reds. Phillips is a good photobomber, but nobody in Cincinnati wants him practicing that craft on the bench for an extended amount of time.
