- Philadelphia Flyers
On September 24, 2018, the Philadelphia Flyers introduced Gritty, a new nightmare-inducing mascot that was so questionable people literally thought it was a prank – until they remembered the Phillie Phanatic also existed. And so the Flyers settled into a new life with a messy orange puppet for a franchise figurehead.
Months later, Gritty has become a hockey Icon.
Gritty’s fame stretches far beyond the walls of the Wells Fargo Center, having infiltrated the collective heart of Hockey Twitter and Business Insider’s own hockey Slack channel. It truly says something that two Islanders fans not only agreed to but actively requested to write this post.
Without further ado, here are a bunch of amazing gift ideas for Gritty fans far and wide.
