Flyers Introduce New Mascot “Gritty”, And We Are All Scared

The Monday of September 24th just got a little scarier.

As the Philadelphia Flyers unveiled their new, nightmare-fueled mascot early this morning, many responded with confusion, questions, and evident fear.

The orange, satanic-looking muppet comes with it’s own bio, stating:

“His father was a “bully,” so naturally he has some of those tendencies – talented but feisty, a fierce competitor, known for his agility given his size. He’s loyal but mischievous; the ultimate Flyers fan who loves the orange and black, but is unwelcoming to anyone who opposes his team. Legend has it he earned the name “Gritty” for possessing an attitude so similar to the team he follows.

He claims that he’s been around for a lot longer than we know it, and recent construction at the Wells Fargo Center disturbed his secret hideout forcing him to show his face publicly for the first time. He has some oddities that are both humorous and strange. A number of times he’s been caught eating snow straight from the Zamboni machine, and unbeknown to most, his love of hot dogs has been inflating the Flyers Dollar Dog Night consumption totals for years.

 That being said, there’s no denying that he’s one of our own.” 

If the Flyers were aiming for an explosive reaction, kudos to them. It is almost as ridiculed as the infamous “iHob” stunt. Many turned to Twitter to express their thoughts on Gritty.


What do you think of the new mascot?
