As if Pence leaning into the joke on Twitter, and Miller doubling down on the call wasn't celebration enough, Posey got in on the action when he wished his friend a happy birthday on Instagram:

A part of us is hoping that this call sticks for the rest of the season ... and that, in the aftermath of all the excitement, Pence and Posey are contacting their Giants HR representative to list each other as their emergency contacts.
