HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRITTY!!!
Can you believe it's been 3 years since we were graced with the national treasure that is known as Gritty?
The Flyers mascot has warmed our hearts over the years and now he is taking to the streets of Philadelphia to celebrate his birthday.
According to 6abc:
Chopper 6 was overhead as the furry orange biker revved up his engines and began the journey from the Wells Fargo Center.
In what was surely a bewildering sight for motorists, Gritty - along with a group of fellow riders and a Philadelphia police escort - rode up the fast lane of Interstate 95.
His route includes a ride past local landmarks including the Art Museum and City Hall.
Gritty was then returning to the Wells Fargo Center for cupcakes and a "birthday serenade."
In honor of his 3rd birthday, Gritty tweeted a poem he wrote himself, thanking fans and Philadelphia "Gritizens."
