Carson Wentz gave football to Mike Trout after throwing a TD

Carson Wentz gave football to Mike Trout after throwing a TD

The Mike Trout and Carson Wentz bromance took it to the next level on New Year's Day in Philadelphia. They're now giving each other presents.

After Carson threw a pretty ball to Zach Ertz for a touchdown to give the Eagles a lead in the third quarter over the dallas Cowboys, Wentz got the ball from Ertz and ran over to hand it to season ticket holder and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout.

This after the duo spent some time over the Christmas holiday hunting together in New Jersey.

Wentz has been in the giving spirit as of late, gifting some hunting weapons to his offensive linemen as well. Let's hope he gives one final gift to Eagles fans today, a win over the Cowboys. The Eagles hold a 17-13 lead late in the 3rd quarter at the time of this posting.

Wentz could have been returning the favor after Trout treated Eagles players to a fresh pair of Nikes for Christmas.

Wentz was aked afterward about his New Year's Day present to Trout.

"We had talked about it," he said. "I just wanted to get him a football. Kind of funny."

Flyers mascot Gritty absolutely destroyed another mascot on social media

By now, you’ve probably seen that adorable video of Gritty experiencing snow for the very first time. It’s sweet and precious, just like our Gritty. 

The video has spread to tons of different outlets on social media, where the love for Gritty is flowing faster than the snow no one expected. Here it is again, in case you missed it. 

 

However, as it hits timelines across the league, it appears that not everyone is impressed with the video. It seems that some of the other mascots across the NHL have become a bit ticked that Gritty is getting all the love. 

Bailey, the LA Kings mascot, seems bit angry that Gritty is getting all this attention. Or maybe he’s ticked that he isn’t also getting snow. He had a few things to say on a repost of the video on social media. 

Because Gritty is well, Gritty, he couldn’t let that one go and fired back with an absolute roast of the other mascot. See his response for yourself. 

We have no words, beyond well played Gritty, well played. As far as we’re concerned, Gritty is undefeated in this league.

Gritty enjoys the wonders of snow for the first time in his life

Philadelphia was treated to something of a surprise snowstorm Thursday morning.

Weather people are not in mid-season form. They're rusty so to speak. So the accumulation this morning caught plenty of people by surprise.

But there's a bright side to the inconvenience. We all get to witness Gritty, the Flyers young mascot, experience snow for the first time. It did not disappoint. 

"Zamboni dust." Hehe.

The guy from North Dakota across the street was less in awe and more in love with the flakes:
