When the Philadelphia Flyers announced that Gritty would be their new mascot, most of the comments were about how creepy he was. We took a different stance, saying that the Flyers had an opportunity to make a memorable mascot who may actually be insane. Trying something different could be extremely entertaining to watch. Well, the Flyers listened, and Gritty has been making headlines with his behavior. And now he destroyed the penalty box.
Sent to the box during an intermission game between youth players, Gritty took out his anger on whatever item he could get his hands on. Pucks, towels and other items were chucked over the glass. Unfortunately, Gritty actually broke the glass from its stanchions.
