Gritty's home hygiene tips are hilarious — and also kind of terrifying

Gritty's home hygiene tips are hilarious — and also kind of terrifying

Gritty, the Flyers' orange ball of carnage, is known for his disheveled appearance, but he apparently has plenty of thoughts on personal hygiene:

Interesting. And slightly worrying.

With more time than usual on his hands while he practices social distancing, Gritty took to Twitter on Tuesday to share some of his best hygiene tips for those spending more time than usual in their homes.

We're going to break them down below, because if you take Gritty's word at face value, you might run into a few problems.

1. "Wipe down all surfaces with appropriate amount of toilet paper and fabreze."

Please do not tee-pee your house. Toilet paper has its own purpose, Grit.

2. "Cover all spills with newspaper, leave to let dry for 3-5 days."

Don't do this; instead, read the newspaper and use a dish towel or a few sheets of paper towel to clean up the mess. And Grit, bud, that's way too many days.

3. "Don't forget to water your plants. Plants are people too, you know."

You know what? This is a good one. And Gritty gave us a video to boot:

Maybe we're turning a corner here.

4. "Tide pods are like little bars of shower soap for all your nooks and crannies, not for human consumption. BTW towels N/A, air dry only."

Ah, welp, guess not. At least he's not telling us to eat the Tide Pods, but please only put Tide Pods in your washing machine. The air dry thing ... that's up to you.

5. "Most people don't know, plungers are multi-use. Think about it."

This one is scarily open-ended. What's he referencing? Climbing walls like a spy? Removing earwax? Using a plunger as a hat? The mind shudders.

6. "Carpet should be mowed to desired length."

This is my favorite Grit tip. It's still not advisable! But it is definitely funny. Also, if your carpet is growing, you might want to get a new one.

7. "Your shower drain is definitely clogged with fur. Maybe try Nair?"

Fur in the drain shouldn't be a problem unless you let your pets take daily showers, or you have a giant orange goofball living in the guest room.

8. "Mr. Clean's magic eraser does not erase bad decisions. Also, not magic."

Gritty ends on a high note. This is all true: it can't fix your karaoke after that fifth drink, and it's not magic, it's just a cleaner! False advertising from the bald guy, something Gritty would never do ... probably.

Claude Giroux puts ESPN's Max Kellerman in his place for bad hot take on hockey

Claude Giroux puts ESPN's Max Kellerman in his place for bad hot take on hockey

Claude Giroux delivered an important message Wednesday night.

On Friday morning, he delivered a knockout.

Max Kellerman had a piping hot take about hockey Wednesday on ESPN's "First Take."

Anybody surprised? No? OK, so here it was:

Listen, I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but in the United States of America, no one really cares about hockey. You know, the old joke is every town has 20,000 hockey fans, they all have season tickets, so the arenas are always sold out but the TV ratings don’t do anything. So it’s not one of the four major team sports.

Giroux, the Flyers' captain and one of the NHL's stars over the last decade, had an appropriate response.

Perfectly done. Giroux subtly put Kellerman in his place and clearly laughed it off, as should all hockey fans. Hockey fans are rabid and protective of their game, so Kellerman knew he could get a rise out of them. Nobody should let him accomplish that.

Why was Kellerman's take asinine? Our friend Joe Haggerty from NBC Sports Boston outlined that right here.
