Gritty will take this as a compliment.
After all, who doesn't love Cookie Monster? The big, blue, furry creature eats cookies for all three meals of the day - that's living.

Gritty knows how to live, too. The Flyers' mascot was confused for the Sesame Street character by an adorable little boy admiring Cookie Mon--err, Gritty on the cover of Philadelphia Magazine.
The video was posted on Twitter Tuesday morning by @shegabstoomuch.
"Whoaaaaaa," the little boy says in awe.
"Wow, who is that?" he's asked.
Gritty will not endure a sophomore slump in 2019-20. He has been working on his figure this summer, staying in shape for the upcoming season.
Does he sneak in a cookie from time to time? Of course he does.
So our little guy wasn't far off.
