Wells Fargo Center's latest renovation has a 'Gritty' feel to it thanks to Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center

Get ready to see more than one Gritty at the Wells Fargo Center.

Like a lot of Gritties.

For Wednesday’s home opener against the Devils, the Flyers are set to unveil the Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center, where fans will have a “variety of wacky makeover options with costumes and makeup, encompassing everything from orange hair dye and face paint, to hair extensions and wigs, and even simply getting blasted with orange ‘Grit Powder,’” according to a release by the team Monday.

The Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center, which is located on the main concourse outside of Section 118, will be open 90 minutes before puck drop and through the start of the third period every game.

“For the coming season, we’ve rolled out new, first-of-their-kind experiences for millennials, gamers, foodies, and hard core fans at the Wells Fargo Center,” Valerie Camillo, Flyers and Wells Fargo Center president of business operations, said in the release. “The Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center is our latest concept — with a clear focus on enhancing the gameday experience for families and kids.”

Gritty, quite the cultured mascot, even provided a comment on his new digs, via the release:

I recently completed a rigorous quarter hour online course in Feng shui, so Flyers fans are basically getting some Architectural Digest cover-worthy aesthetic. It’s my space, my office really, so I committed myself to a true post-modern, farm house grunge minimal feel. Bobby Flay would be so proud.

This is very selfless of Gritty.

The home opener should be fun. The Flyers are 1-0-0, there’s a giveaway item, Wayne Simmonds will be back in town and things are about to get Grittier.

Flyers mascot Gritty gets belly button pierced ... seriously

Flyers mascot Gritty gets belly button pierced ... seriously

Gritty is ready for crop top season.

Or swimsuit season. Or is it called beach season?

Are any of these things actual things?

Whatever it is when trendy people are ready to show some skin, Gritty is ready for it.

Why?

The guy got some Gritty bling. He pierced his belly button.

I'm sure he consulted Claw'd over the decision.

As you can see, Gritty's belly button changes colors, too, which is rather fascinating.

The orange fella is really getting to work this summer, clearly gearing up for a big Year 2.

Piercing his ears (if he has them) could be next on his to-do list.

Look out, Philly.

Flyers prospect Alex Lyon becomes latest goalie with Gritty mask

Flyers prospect Alex Lyon becomes latest goalie with Gritty mask

Maybe Alex Lyon is trying to scare his opponents?

Who knows, but he loves himself a terrifying goalie mask.

We've seen it before with his movie-themed masks: "The Sixth Sense," "It" and "Saw."

This time, he's going with Gritty.

The Flyers' mascot truly is a hit, especially with the goalies.

Lyon's mask is the fourth Gritty-centric helmet this season.

Anthony Stolarz, Mike McKenna and Calvin Pickard all got in on the fun.

Per usual, goalie mask artist David Gunnarsson hit a home run with his latest mask (and so did Alex McIntyre with the picture of Lyon).

Not only will Lyon look scary in net, but he's also playing well.

In 26 games with the Phantoms, the 26-year-old has put up career bests in goals-against average (2.50) and save percentage (.921).

Lehigh Valley is fighting for an AHL playoff spot. Flyers fans will want to check out the prospects in Allentown … and to see that Gritty mask, of course.
