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.
