Is Gritty the most interesting person (or thing) on the planet?

He might be.

We're pretty sure he was hanging out for Joel Embiid's press conference Wednesday night (watch the video above).

The guy has quite the life.

Thanks to a brilliant Q&A by Sarah Larimer of the Washington Post (via email, of course), the Flyers' mascot offered us a glimpse into the day-to-day lifestyle that is Gritty.

From hair products to his relationship with best friend Claude Giroux and his go-to Wawa order, Gritty opened up — and, yes, it's fascinating.

Let's look at those three excerpts from the Q&A session, which can be found right here.

Can you tell me what products you use for beard/hair care?

This question comes up quite often. It’s all natural, born this way, baby.

This is surprising given how together Gritty looks every single day. Maybe he's being modest, because Gritty truly works hard at it.


Do you ever get to hang out with your best friend Claude? What do you guys like to do for fun?

Claude’s a busy guy, but we write each other almost every day. We’ll get a lot of QT out there in San Jose (he’s my All Star).

Giroux really is his best friend, whether Giroux agrees or not.


What is the best Wawa order?

Have you played Wawa Screen Roulette? Eyes closed — tap, tap, tap, complete order.

People are actually going to try this now.

Earlier this month, Gritty wouldn't disclose his pregame meal, but we have a feeling he likes pasta, pizza or anything else.
