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.

THANK. YOU. SO. MUCH. PHILADELPHIA.

I think I've seen this thing before at a Grateful Dead show in 88' at the Greek Theater.   Whoa and wow.

Gotta love the wooks...

 

And this looks like a joke from 30 Rock.

It's a shame the Flyers didn't give credit where credit is due on Twitter to the 5th grader from the Philly Public Schools who drew it up.

 

That's not true but it's so bad you thought it was created by a fifth grader didn't you?

I get that like big bird was just a dude in a suit. But like all the other muppets were too small to have a person inside. Wtf

Dude. Big Bird wasn't a Muppet. He was from that child brainwashing PBS show Sesame Street. Although Philly's mascot looks like one.
