Congrats to Gritty! The accolades keep coming for the Flyers mascot as Gritty has now won a Webby award for 'People's Voice Award for Social: Athletes and Sports Teams'! And you can see in the video below, Gritty put on a suit and went to New York City last night to accept his award with a five-word acceptance speech, holding up a sign for people sharing the Philadelphia preferred pronunciation for 'water' as 'wooder'!
Last night's award punctuates a big week for the orange mascot as he was also given the 'Life Of The Party' award as part of Good Morning America's 'Yearbook' awards (tie with Katy Perry).
Congrats Gritty! (Let us know if you want to come to the Radio 104.5 Birthday Show!)
