“I acquired bare (quite a bit), performed in a ball pit, rode a mechanical bull, vacationed in Tahoe, employed (and just about instantly fired) my first intern, threw some cake, and danced my lil dancey dance,” Gritty mentioned, recapping his yr, in a tweet on May 6.
Gritty additionally realized how egocentric he had been, doing antics just for himself.
“I have been doing ME, no matter I wished to do,” Gritty mentioned. “However I did not even take into account asking.. what do YOU need me to do?”
Enter one persistent Flyers fan. Since January of 2020, a Flyers fan often called @KnittyKitty has requested that the mascot throw a sheet cake at her.
My long-standing requests for Gritty to throw a sheetcake at me have been blatantly ignored by @GrittyNHL and @NHLFlyers. It is clear Gritty is barely in it for fame and would not care about followers. However he can flip it round. He is aware of what he should do.

She requested once more at the start of 2021. Then once more in April.
Then Gritty’s weekend of benevolence gave the fan an ideal shot at getting her request granted.
Gritty, I do know we have been enjoying a one-sided sport of cat and mouse for nearly a yr and a half now.
The time has come.
I need you to throw a sheet cake at me.
