"petin stoey" anagrams to "petty noise", which is also what you get when you read this comment aloud.

EDIT: THAT IS A RUDE EDIT, HOKIEFIREMAN, AND YOU KNOW IT

No idea what you are talking about. I'm innocent.

Was looking for a fireman with an ax gif to cut you down for using this and instead I found this and have to use it.

for what it's worth, your edit is still spelled wrong and anagrams to Orgy Intros

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

That's his last name.

you edited from "petin stoey" to "orgin story".

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

And then I tried to play it off that it was Gritty's last name "orgin" as in this is the story or Gritty Orgin. Just trying to cover up for my typing/spelling errors.

The Orgin Story says his actual name is Bernard Gritowsky, though.

Justin Turner looks like shit.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Gritty is weird. Gritty is strange. Gritty is bizarre.

Gritty is the best thing to happen in sports in a long while.

I'm all about not taking oneself too seriously. Outside of the Hokiebird, obviously, the Philly Phanatic and San Diego Chicken are the two best mascots in sports, primarily because the people inside the costume and the teams they represent don't give a damn what they do. Gritty is allll about that and then some. The damn googly eyes are freakin hilarious, and apparently it also releases smoke from under the helmet, as I saw on Good Morning America today. Its so over the top its perfect.

Sir Purr in Carolina used to be portrayed by a former Hokie Bird, though it might be the same person who went down the Jacksonville.

The UCSC Banana Slug mascot is such a disappointment.

Gritty is awesome. Looks like an offspring of a Broad Street Bully, long hair, mangled beard, and no teeth. Phanatic is still the best and I hate the San Diego Chicken.

The wonky eyeballs sold me on it they dont move in the pictures I had seen at first but this, this makes it so much better

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Those animated eyeballs are different than the stills. Hmmmm...

Even Gary Bettman couldn't be bothered to comment on Gritty when asked recently.

I love Gritty.

In Philly, we are all Gritty.

I might have to change my license plate to "Gritty" after this weekend embarrassment

Because starting it with "Sh" wouldn't pass obscenity rules.

Womp womp

Hey guys - Is this the weeks' Hatin' on thread??

Gritty rhymes with Shitty.

OK, OK...

The real question is if wasnick will switch to the Gritty beer from Busch

I'll try anything, once.

I think those of us with brothers can confirm shooting each other with a T-shirt cannon qualifies as "Brotherly Love".

The Philly Union had their own new mascot as well. They had an "egg-hatching" at a museum or something or another. Not sure what the deal is with Philly and new mascots. Are the Eagles getting a new one, too?

It's the other bad teams besides the Phillies trying to stay relevant in the city, because they figure ugly ass mascots will distract from the horrible product on the field/ice.

And in Gritty's case, it's completely working. Talk about so bad it's good.

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Josh Jackson, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

Finally found something worse than roboduck

There's a decent chance I know the person who Gritty absorbed to gain life. If that's the case we're in for some pretty good shit going forward. Once saw that person put someone through a table with a fairly epic body slam while in full mascot suit

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

The Clemson tiger and Gritty have the same dealer:

Dude has an impressive customer base

It's the jiggling eyes right? Having the eyes move like that definitely a great idea for Gritty.

This is the only thing more disturbing than Gritty's original head. I love it.

If you play it, they will win.

Gritty received votes in 46 states this past Tuesday.

On one hand, I'm glad people are out voting. But it's disappointing to learn that people don't take it seriously

If a tree falls in Scott Stadium does it make a sound?

Well lots of people use write ins as just a strategy. Who they write down doesn't matter. I'd vote for Gritty out of pure hilarity

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

I mean, at the end of the day, sometimes it feels like your vote doesn't matter anyway (e.g. Being a republican in a very democrat area, being a democrat in a very republican area, preferring 3rd party candidates anywhere). Why not have some fun with it?

lol and then came out of the box, immediately dropped the gloves, and went at Gritty again

Someone is raising that kid right

This is the most Philly kid out there. Just keep him away from D Cell batteries, and Santa Claus if it's snowing out

When I was on the train through Philly on my way to see the Pitt game I saw some graffiti of Gritty smoking a blunt. It was probably the best thing I bore witness to that whole weekend.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Got get Gritty in while they can. Flyers are outside the playoffs and everything will be Harper focused soon...

Soon?

game started 30 seconds ago and the Flyers are literally 1 point away from elimination. The attention is already on the Phils

Wait, what?

Yea Kansas City doesn't have an NHL team.

Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies

Me when the Gritty thread gets bumped.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I had a good laugh at this

There was an explosion at a South Philly power plant last week. It was a huge explosion that woke people up on the Jersey side of the Delaware River. Just for context.
