Even though he made his official debut only four days ago, Gritty, the orange, googly-eyed new mascot of the Flyers, has been a hot topic of conversation on social media. On Thursday night, he made his late-night television debut during Jimmy Fallon's cold open to Boyz II Men's "Motown Philly." In true Philly fashion, Gritty picks a fight with actor Ricky Gervais when he cuts.
Keep making Philly proud, Gritty. We're glad to see you're in touch with your roots.
