Flyers mascot Gritty works on his dad bod at Planet Fitness


Did you think Gritty was going to be satisfied with winning the NHL Fan Choice Awards honor for best mascot?

Rumor has it Gritty is working on his summer abs.

Or maybe not.

Regardless, the orange fella knows how to stay in shape. He's a preparation junkie, a true gym (and rink) rat. Complacency is not in Gritty's vocabulary.

He's also not breaking glass and scaring kids, so that's a positive.
