Flyers mascot Gritty has good question for ESPN


Gritty is comfortable in his own fur.

That's what makes him so great.

Not only did the Flyers give fans a night to remember last Saturday with a 4-3 OT victory over the Penguins in the Stadium Series, but Gritty also had himself a night.

He kicked off the festivities by floating down from the Lincoln Financial Field roof in front of 69,620 fans (see story).

He got loose, as well, during the second period. The fleet-footed Gritty could not be contained, not on this night.

So on Friday, he had a very valid question for ESPN.

If ESPN was smart, they'd include the Flyers' mascot. No interview or prerequisites needed. Gritty showed enough Saturday night.
