Two things that have kept Philadelphia sports fans busy while holed up at home over the past few days are the exploits of everyone's favorite mascot, Gritty, and Netflix's wildly popular and truly bizarre docu-series "Tiger King."
Now, if you haven't seen "Tiger King" just yet, it'd be foolish to have someone attempt to explain it to you in detail. It's bonkers crazy, with amazing twists and turns.
But to get the gist of Gritty's video, all you need to know is the main character is a tiger-loving man who calls himself Joe Exotic who has a long-standing feud with a woman who runs a "rival" zoo/company called Big Cat Rescue. Someone disappears, there may have been a murder, there may be some weird sex cult things going on, and there's maybe a murder-for-hire plot.
So, stuff Gritty is probably into.
Oh, and Joe Exotic makes country music tunes about it all — with videos! Which Gritty is parroting below.

Here's the original "I Saw a Tiger" video by Joe Exotic:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUOZUu0t2CA
The lyrics are pretty simple: "I saw a tiger. And a tiger saw a man."
But what if a tiger saw Gritty?!? Makes you think.
Thank you to Joe Exotic and Gritty for bringing this into our lives.
