The era of the old mascot guard is over. It is now the reign of Gritty.

Sure, he might be the freakiest looking mascot to come out since King Baby down in New Orleans, but that's just part of his charm. Gritty is a mascot for the people, as evidenced by the numerous Internet memes starring everyone's favorite orange son. The Phanatic might be older, but Gritty is the mascot Philly fans need and deservea weirdo, but your weirdo.

Gritty might be the new kind of the block, but no one can top Phillie Phanatic in pure entertainment value. The Phanatic was original prankster mascot, imitating and poking fun at the opposition's expense. Gritty depends on fans to make content, while the Phanatic is content. Both are great, but the Phanatic still rules the City of Brotherly Love.
