Gritty Is A Thing of Nightmares

Can we talk?  I mean yesterday was filled with some crazy ass stuff.

No, not politics….this….

This is Gritty (stupid name) the just unveiled new mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers.  Next to him is the adorable Philadelphia Phillies’ mascot, the Phanatic.  Do you see the issue?  Gritty is the thing that nightmares are made of and the Phanatic is hugable and lovable.

The jokes immediately started on Social Media.  I’m pretty sure that was not the intention of the Flyers organization.  This demented mascot is something that would terrify, not give one the warm and fuzzies.

What is most disturbing is the fact this was the final result of at least a year’s research and demos.  This was the one that won out over all other designs submitted.  This was the final selection by the top brass of the Flyers Organization.  The head shaking of Philly Phans is loud.  We’ve become the national reject of Mascots.  This thing looks like a meth-head not something you would buy in toy form for your child.

I’m guessing someone or someones will be fired over this nightmare of a mascot.  Oh and Gritty as it’s name?  WTH does Gritty have to do with Hockey or the Flyers in general?   So until the powers that be fix this mess Philadelphia is the laughing-stock of the sports world.

A Super Bowl Victory and the Plague

The Philadelphia Eagles are Super Bowl LII Champions!!!  We had a great parade.  The best part was telling Chris Collingsworth to SUCK IT!!!

A couple of days later my cold turned evil and tried to kill me.  Luckily my wife hounded me until I called the doctor again because I was having trouble breathing.  Long story short…I’m alive!!  I missed 6 days of work but I’m alive 🙂

Thanksgiving…I’m Thankful for the Food

No holiday would be complete without a Stock’s cake!  Boom…that’s what Philly is all about at Thanksgiving!

We would be thankful for more but our sports teams suck, lol!

Celebrating the Obvious

Okay first let me say I am relieved the Phillies finally got something going and although it was a stressful game they won.  They are back home as of this morning and I’m just hoping they’ve got that lovin’ feeling again because this is all just too stressful for me.  It’s a stupid kind of stressful too because lets face it whether they boys win or lose I still have to go to work in the morning.
Today I celebrate the fact that my two day separation from the one I love is over.  I can’t wait to get home and hug my honey.  It’s only been two days but as I whined blogged about yesterday I was away last weekend and then she was “away” two days this week.  I just love spending time with her.  Not in a creepy I’m stalking you kind of way but in a I love you and you make my day a whole lot brighter.  Wait…isn’t that a Brady Bunch Song?  Point is I get to see my love tonight!  Yeah for me!!!
I’ve been having an odd week this week and I’m glad it’s almost over.  Seriously it’s like Dude Where’s My Car but without the car or that cool scene at the take out place…’and then?’
In other news…LiLo was NOT sent back to jail for her probation violations.  The Judge sent her back to rehab for a mandatory 30 days.  You know unless the Judge decides like last time mandatory 90 day stint to end it like 3 weeks in.  You know cause 3 weeks is long enough to kill the addiction that has been plaguing our young heroin heroine.   Poor LiLo.  Lets face it folks it’s been a slow news day.
