Flyers’ Mascot Gritty’s A Fan Of The Phillie Phanatic’s New Look

In his still brief time as the official mascot and national icon of the Philadelphia Flyers, Gritty has used his charming personality to befriend other figures around the Philly sports scene. He’s hung out with the likes of the Philadelphia Union’s Phang, Lehigh Valley Phantoms’ MeLVin, and most notably the Philadelphia Phillies mascot the Phillie Phanatic, who Gritty has recently voiced his opinion on the baseball club character’s new look.

For those who are unaware, the Phanatic underwent a slight transformation prior to the Phillies Spring Training getting fully underway. The beloved creature added blue-colored eyebrows and a tail, with what looks to be scales running up his arms.
