Rosenthal later found out how big of a deal his umbrella holder had become, and he was a good sport about the joke:

Rosenthal even shouted out his umbrella holder — a guy by the name of Nate Goodyear on Twitter — who summarized the entire odd phenomenon perfectly:

Like I said in the headline, in the eyes of Twitter users, Ken Rosenthal’s umbrella holder was the real NLCS MVP.
