Flyers mascot Gritty got naked (again) during a wild first period between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh on Friday.
The teams combined for five goals before 8 PM and then suddenly Gritty’s clothes were off.
Over the offseason, it was unclear if the NHL would allow mascots to be at games during the 2020-21 season due to the coronavirus pandemic. Mascots aren’t exactly essential (sorry, Slapshot) and with fans unlikely to be at most games, their presence seemed like an unnecessary risk with marginal benefit.
But the mascots fought back! After noticing he was left off Gary Bettman’s initial list, Flyers’ mascot Gritty raised a stink online and started a petition to be allowed at games this year.
The ploy purportedly worked after Gritty got help from Flyers’ forward Kevin Hayes.
A large majority of America has had their eyes glued to the TVs since Election Day. Three days after the polls closed on Tuesday night, the winner of the Presidental Election has not been determined as several states are still too close to call.
At this point, Democratic nominee Joe Biden has accumulated 253 electoral votes, leaving him 17 votes shy of the 270 needed to win the election. Friday morning, however, there was a major development in Pennsylvania that puts the Scranton, PA native on the verge of the presidency.
After trailing President Donald Trump by 548k votes on Election Night, Biden made a comeback after collecting hundreds of thousands of mail-in votes were counted mostly from left-leaning Philadelphia. The city has voted for Vice President Biden over President Trump 80 to 20 percent.
Biden officially took the lead early this morning in the vote count, turning Pennsylvania blue. Left-leaning Pennsylvanian sports fans took to Twitter and used famous hockey figures from the state to celebrate.
Anyway, I thought I’d share this video of Gritty smashing things in a Rage Room.
Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty has a lot of hidden talents and on Wednesday, he showed off another.
The Orange Creature was given a golf club at TopGolf and took a swing.
And, uh, he did not miss.
Flyers’ mascot Gritty told fans “I’m lonely” in a ridiculous letter he penned in mid-March when the coronavirus pandemic first started.
Since then, the scary-looking mascot, who was cleared of an assault accusation in February and enjoys eating penguins, has still managed to stay busy.
Wednesday, Gritty released a short video showing what he’s been up to… trick shots!
Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty published his first tweet since making fun of Brad Marchand a week ago.
The mascot penned a letter to his fans all across the world and admitted he’s practicing social distancing. Gritty also spoke about what he’s been up to lately.
Flyers mascot Gritty will remain a free, uh, being after the Philadelphia Police cleared him of wrongdoing in the assault of a 13-year-old boy.
The Philadelphia Police Department announced the news this morning in a release.
Gritty posted a claymation video in which penguins play hockey and then – well…
Exactly what you think happens happens.
Nastya Ovechkina sat in the first few rows of Wells Fargo Center Wednesday as the Capitals took on the Philadelphia Flyers for the first time this season.
During the game, Nastya got her first experience with Gritty and she could not stop laughing.
