Fans pack Lincoln Financial Field for Eagles open practice

The doors opened to Lincoln Financial Field and thousands upon thousands of Eagles fans filed in.

The champs are back and so are the fans.

Here’s a look at some posts from inside Lincoln Financial Field for those of you who weren’t able to make it to open practice.

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:
