Angry Heat Fan Giving Noah The Finger Has Been Identified

(CBS) The Miami-looking lady, passionately giving Joakim Noah the one-finger salute at last night’s Bulls-Heat game, has been identified.

She is Filomena ‘Phyllis’ Tobias, the widow of former CNBC commentator and financial expert Seth Tobias, her daughter, Victoria Racanati, told the Sun Sentinel.

“Yes, it’s my mom. She’s embarrassed, but she is being a good sport,” the daughter said on Thursday. “She was having fun just like any other fan. All she has to say is that people need to get a life.”

Ironically, this isn’t Filomena’s first time in the public spotlight. After the death of her fourth husband, some questioned her involvement.
