County Commissioner George Halcovage Spotted at Sixers Game Sunday

If you’re a fan of the 76ers, you’ve seen a fair share of celebrity sightings courtside this season.

For a while, it was Kendall Jenner. M Night Shyamalan sits near the visitor’s bench quite a bit. And Allen Iverson may be bunking at the arena in between home games.

There’s also this guy:

In fact, George Halcovage is in 1 out of every 4.62 local photos on Facebook.

The man is literally everywhere.

On Sunday, those worlds collided. Halcovage was spotted by some observant viewers sitting behind the Sixers basket for Game 4 of their series with the Toronto Raptors.

Now, how wise-eyed are you?

Can you spot another Pottsville celebrity in these shots?

Well, we hope Sonny gets Jojo back in the right frame of mind for Game 6 on Thursday.

And if George is going to the game, at least bring home popcorn for everyone?
