Gritty was a question on JEOPARDY!

With all Gritty has done in his short life, you’ve got to wonder where this ranks. It’s pretty cool. On Friday night, our beloved Philadelphia Flyers mascot was a question on Jeopardy!

Eric was all too happy to give the answer of Gritty for $800 in the category pertaining to the Almanac. It looked like Amanda was trying to ring in, too, because who doesn’t know Gritty these days?

This caps another banner week for the popular rookie mascot, who was also involved in the popular Overwatch League opening night ceremony in California just a day ago, where he was met with a rousing ovation.

The Flyers getting some love on Jeopardy isn’t the only game show Philly sports teams have been featured on in the past 12 months. Last year we were all treated to this reminder on Wheel of Fortune.

With how things started for Gritty, who would have guessed his rock star like fame now? 

We’ll take no one for $1,000, Alex.

Flyers mascot Gritty a hit on Capitol Hill

Gritty was on Capitol Hill Wednesday.

No, he was not announcing his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election.

But remember when he received 14 votes in Camden County?

Anyway, the Flyers' mascot was doing his thing in Washington, D.C., for the 2019 Hockey Day on the Hill and Future Goals demonstration put together by the NHL and the bipartisan Congressional Hockey Caucus.

You can learn more about the event right here.

Gritty, obviously, was a popular attraction.

Big fan Katy Tur of MSNBC got to meet the orange fella and was clearly thrilled.

She had probably been waiting for this moment ever since …

Per usual, Gritty was active and busy.

The guy just has swag.

Updated: Sunday, 2:39 p.m.

We had a feeling Gritty was gearing up for a busy and active All-Star weekend.

For one, he was going with his best bud Claude Giroux.

And also, just look at this list.

As we expected, Gritty was all over the place — and with Giroux a lot, obviously (seriously, that's his best friend).

From showing off his speed skating, playing dodgeball with the fellow mascots, picking fights with the ref, throwing a fan's (Penguins?) hat and walking the red carpet with Giroux, Gritty had an action-packed time in San Jose, California.

Here's a look at all his grittiness:
