Couple a things...I hope he skates pre zamboni, looks like his fur might shed at some point.

It is a scary looking thing,  I can't imagine "gritty" doing well in plush sales. 

Usually I'm not one for over focus grouping a creative endeavor, however, no one said..."hey that thing is kinda scary" at any point in its creation time line ?

 

 

The best mascot in all of sport is already in town.  Why on earth wouldn't the brain trust do a variation on a theme and use the Phanatic ?

Pay the Phillies their money, color the fur orange, slap a sweater on him and viola mascot. 

 

I don't care for this at all. 

Whatever it just snorted was Gritty

That's the most horrifying face I've ever seen on a mascot

Nightmare fuel. I just can't even. Seeing this guy at a Flyers game might set my PTSD treatments back a decade.

I haven't seen this much backlash against a mascot since Port Adelaide unveiled this travesty

Be thankful you don't have Nordy, (or Tardy as we used to call it on the old Wild boards)...complete with Mullet...

Nordy sucks...so does Gritty.  I hate mascots in pro sports almost as a rule.  Sure, they're not really for adults, but am I the only one that thinks Gritty drives around in a van that says 'Free Candy' spray painted on the side?

Philadelphia is blessed with the greatest mascot in all of organized sport, the Phillie Phanatic. No other mascot so accurately depicts the fanbase which it is meant to represent:

I suppose this newest abomination may balance that out...

      Has anybody seen Bundy since they've announced Gritty?  Coincidence?

      Pretty sure I told this story before, but @OccamsRazor's "I can't believe people care" post made me think of it.   So, my two daughters, my wife and I were at a State College Spikes game in State College.  They are Single A.   My daughters were 11 and 7.   I got the tickets from my boss and they were literally on the home dugout, so it was kind of cool.  Kind of. They have two mascots there (or did--this has been about 11 years now!).  One is "Spike," who is the main mascot and interacts with fans.  Being right at the dugout, the girls got to dance with Spike on the roof of the dugout and interact with him frequently. The other mascot is called "Nookie Monster."   In dead center field, there is a "nook" in the fence where the outfield juts out slightly further than the rest of the fence.  When the Spikes hit a home run, Nookie Monster would come out of a little door in dead center and do some sort of dance or cheer or something and go back in.   So, it was late in the game and the Spikes were down with a runner or two on, and my youngest screams at the top of her lungs, "we want Nookie!  We want Nookie! We want..."   My wife and I glanced at each other instantaneously and "Noooooooooooooo!!!!"  LOL  The people around us thought it was hysterical.   In the meantime, there was what I think was a 12-14 year old boy behind us with his grandfather.  A know-it-all little twit who had running commentary on every single pitch, every single play, explaining to his grandfather (and anyone in earshot) what the player did wrong.  On both sides.  "He shouldn't have thrown a slider there (it was a curve)!  He should have thrown a curve (it was)!"  etc.   Anyway, late in the game, Spike was in the aisle to our right, maybe 8 seats down, signing autographs. So, naturally my girls wanted some illegible scribble on their program.  So off they went.  When they returned, the know-it-all twit behind us says really loudly to his apparently deaf grandfather, "Man, some people just come for the puppets!"   My 11 year old wheeled around.   "I happen to like puppets!" she roared.  "Especially hand-puppets." [while raising her middle finger and making a scooping motion with her hand].  "If you don't shut your hole, you're going to be one!"   The people around us went into convulsions.   The kid never spoke again.
