Everyone loves Jason Peters.
And how can you not?
Remember when 69,596 fans were chanting his name as he was carted off the field with a season-ending ACL and MCL tear last October?
There's plenty of validation for that.
"He is a legend around here," Carson Wentz said at the time. "He is a future Hall of Famer. We love that guy."
For his insane work ethic, always defending his teammates, his nine Pro Bowls ... these are just some of the reasons why he's so revered in this city.
We can now add this to the list.
Peters has a new custom-made truck commemorating the Eagles and the Super Bowl LII victory over the Patriots.
Good chance Peters will have plenty of honking horns coming his way when he takes this bad boy out on the road.
A car horn will never sound so good.
So by now, you’ve had a chance to react to Gritty, the Flyers new colorful mascot.
Chances are, you’ve got a lot of thoughts. Same.
So do the Philadelphia Eagles.
The team’s social media account posted a video on their Twitter Wednesday of the players reacting to the new mascot and heir reactions are…um, varied.
Swoop is excited, some players are confused, Brandon Graham finds it hysterical and others, like Jordan Matthews, love it. Check out the full video for yourself below.
Eagles players, they’re just like you.
Everybody loves Gritty now, right?
The Gritty wave is reaching all kinds of levels now with a beer dedicated to the Flyers' new mascot, who was just introduced to the world less than 30 hours ago.
Broken Goblet Brewing, in Bristol, Pennsylvania, announced Tuesday, as we discovered on Reddit, it will release "Nightmare Fuel" on Oct. 13.
It sounds like a tasty beverage with a punch of Broad Street Bullies.
And, of course, with a ton of grit, as you can see by the image:
Here is the detailed description:
We just had to. Saturday, October 13th, we will be releasing NIGHTMARE FUEL, a lightly hopped Cream Ale brewed with vanilla and “bruised and bloodied” oranges. Resin and pine from the Chinook addition, and a touch of Saaz hops accent the sweetness of the vanilla and the tart orange in this fluffy ale. Very special limited edition crowlers will be released as well as draft. Special shout out to our friends on FB for the funny names and beer ideas! Extra special thanks to Mark Salmon who - ONCE AGAIN - comes through with the art in blazing speed.
