Gritty Playing Lockdown Defense on a Couple of Nuns

Kevin Kinkead - February 4, 2020

Back to business for Gritty, who Monday was exonerated after a brief assault investigation by Philadelphia Police. Turns out they could not find evidence that the Gritmeister punched a 13-year-old boy in the back during a Flyers’ photo-op for season ticket holders.

So Gritty was back at it today, visiting some school and playing suffocating defense on a couple of nuns, swatting one and then taunting her for good measure:

Kevin Kinkead - February 3, 2020

Remember when the father of a 13-year-old boy accused Gritty of punching his son in the back?

Philadelphia police got involved. Local news stations went down to Chris Greenwell’s house to get the story directly from him. The entire Delaware Valley was talking about this firecracker of a story.

It’s case closed now, with authorities clearing Gritty of any wrongdoing.

Mayor Kenney Warns Mummers Leadership to Make Changes, or Else the “Future of the Parade is in Jeopardy”

Kevin Kinkead - January 24, 2020

This has nothing to do with sports, but it’s a Friday afternoon and people seem to have rather inspired takes on the topic of the Mummers Parade.

As you know, there was another instance of black face that took place this month, with members of the Froggy Carr group disqualified despite their explanation that the orange and black color scheme they used was based on the Philadelphia Flyers (who later distanced themselves from the brigade). In years prior, an image of Caitlyn Jenner appeared on a box of Froot Loops and other assorted performances and behaviors took place that were considered to be inappropriate by a portion of the general public. It feels like there’s always some controversy every year.

One of those people in the “disapproving” category is Mayor Jim Kenney, who this week sent a letter to Mummers leadership, asking them to take steps to improve the image of the parade and correct problematic behavior, threatening changes if those requests are not met.

Here’s the letter, via Matt Petrillo over at CBS 3:
