Flyers goalie's new mask has a sick Gritty feature

Flyers goalie's new mask has a sick Gritty feature

When it comes to Gritty, we’re all in.

It seems like one of the newest Flyers goalies, Calvin Pickard, is also all in on the Gritty craze.

Pickard unveiled a custom goalie mask on social media Tuesday, created by artist Franny Drummond, with one special element to it.

The helmet features the orange, furry monster’s face on the back right corner of the mask, just under a Flyers logo. It’s straight up incredible.  

Relish in the Gritty glory of the helmet yourself, shared on the artist’s Twitter page ahead of the home opener.

Whether Pickard just feels comfortable in his new home in Philly already after a whirlwind journey, or he’s just trying to scare the living daylights out of opponents from the net, it seems like he’s all in on Gritty.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.

Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.

It will melt your heart.



If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.  

It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.

Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
