This week's Twitter round-up is unique in that much of it is dedicated to the oddity that is Gritty, the new mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers. Gritty looks like the forgotten Fraggle Rock muppet who fell through one of the caverns, only to turn up years later in the basement of the Wells Fargo Center.
Imagined conversation in the Flyers marketing office:
Jr. executive: "We need a mascot that kinda scares kids, but makes them laugh as long as they don't look directly at him. He also needs to make the parents uncomfortable. Also, he should have googly eyes."
