Meet Gritty, The Philly Flyers' New Mascot

Hockey season has officially started and typically I would be posting something about the Blackhawks, however, my attention has been shifted towards the Philadelphia Flyers and their new mascot. Enter Gritty. I'd like to tell you this is some sort of animal but honestly it looks like Zoe from Sesame Street had some rough years since my childhood. I don't know what possessed the Flyers to bring this mascot on as it is the most terrifying thing I've seen a while but I'm glad they did because I already know Gritty is going to make some great gifs. I may or may not have a new hockey team this season.
