No one (or thing) does it quite like Gritty.
When the Flyers left for the Toronto bubble on Saturday, Gritty was seen waving goodbye from the top of the Wells Fargo Center wishing his team well in its race to the coveted Stanley Cup.
… But did you really think that was going to be the only way the mascot made his presence known to the team?
I’d think again if I were you.
It turns out, Gritty bought a billboard in the heart of Toronto that can be seen on the way to and from Scotiabank Arena.
On the billboard, you’re able to see some words of “encouragement” that Gritty wanted to relay to the Flyers … and while it’s technically a parody of The Police’s song “Every Breath you Take,” it doesn’t make it any less amazing.
Gritty might not be in Toronto to cheer on his Flyers, but somehow ... he is.— Brooke Destra (@BrookeNBCS) July 28, 2020

Seriously, this is only something that Gritty would be able to come up with.
This is ... incredible.— Brooke Destra (@BrookeNBCS) July 28, 2020

This is the mascot’s first time experiencing the Flyers in the playoffs, so obviously he’s going big ... since he had to stay home.
Whatever he plans on doing next, it has got to be good.
